We had the honour of being invited along to Concorde 2 by the lovely man that is Jake Isaac last week and with Jake, knew exactly what we were in for.
Soulful, uplifting tunes that move from deep and thought-provoking to tunes that nobody can help but move to! Really lovely to see Ella Eyre’s support of the acts she’d chosen to take on the (looong, long-long) road with her on her social networks by asking fans to come along early to see them. I’m sure Jake benefited from this in terms of numbers and he sure knows how to handle himself with the crowd. Highlights of his set we’re his songs ‘Stronger’, a new song called ‘Hope’ and ‘Long Road’; a song which on the remaining dates of the tour he was joined on stage by Ella and her band to deliver an energetic, storming performance.
I purposefully didn’t listen to any Ella Eyre other than what I’d already heard. I’m so very glad I didn’t as it allowed me to approach the set without too much of a preconceived idea about what to expect. Ella and her band completely blew us away with some fantastic songs and a really lively performance.
Ella will be performing in Brighton again as support to Kelis at The Great Escape in May and I for one hope to catch her there…
