Laura Pergolizzi ( L.P) @ Observatory (San Diego)

Laura Pergolizzi, better known as her stage name LP, played a sold out show at The Observatory in San Diego, CA with fans outside still trying to score some tickets. After seeing the show, I now know why. LP is one of those artists that  you will have wished you had the chance to see […]

Paper Jackets – Trigger

I wish I had discovered this band sooner. With vocals and music reminiscent of the band ‘Lawson’ and genres extending from alternative rock to pop – I think there is definitely a place in the industry for this 6-piece band. There are plenty of time lapse shots in the music video, but none that change […]

Plested

I had listened to Plested before, but never in depth, so I was in for a positive surprise when I discovered he was the opening act for Lauren Aquilina at The Deaf Institute. Just him and a guitar, with strumming patterns that amateur guitarists/ singer songwriters would not find hard to pick up (perhaps like […]

Lauren Aquilina – Deaf Institute

As well as being a passionate music reviewer, I am also part of many “fandoms”. Fandoms are basically kingdoms of fans – ranging from Sherlockians (Sherlock fans) to Swifties (Taylor Swift fans). One fandom I have joyfully been a part of since around 2016 has been Lauren Aquilina’s. I’d seen her name floating about on […]

The Aces

We recently had the chance to check out The Aces in San Diego, CA. The first thing that stood out about this show before the band even took the stage was their fan base. They started lining up early in the morning to try and be front row, and once doors opened they raced down […]

Indigo Youth @ Night and Day Cafe

Indigo Youth are a vibrant band from Barrow in Furness and they adventured to Manchester. This is a risky move especially from a band that hasn’t necessarily got a following from Manchester. Not to my surprise but to others, they had quite a crowd in, the other bands hadn’t had such a large quantity of […]

Tech N9ne @ Gorilla

It was November 2012 when I made the decision to see Hopsin over Tech N9ne because they were performing on the same night. “He’ll be back next year” I thought to myself, here we are seven years later and Tech N9ne finally announces a UK tour. At around 20 quid a ticket it was obvious […]

Ben Howard @ Brixton Academy

It’s not often an artist can give you the sensation of an ever-increasing descent into the depths of the ocean, or being released from an airlock into the abyss of space. One could argue that Ben Howard feels a duty to produce this effect, with multi-layered ambience and dense textural instrumentation coupled with seamless transitioning […]

Blossoms @ Victoria Warehouse

It was a pleasant surprise to learn I had got a guest list pass for a completely sold out gig. I can honestly say Blossoms as a whole were so friendly and welcoming.  I walked straight in to the dressing room and Josh was steaming his outfit for the night. “Proper charity shop style.” The […]

Kaleb Mckane @ Manchester Academy 3

This was such an unusual experience, I had no idea what to expect from a supporting act but I was instantly blown away by these guys. The band named after front man Kaleb, was insane. His powerful voice rang through the room, it was like David Bowie, literally this young man had a voice like […]
