I love to travel especially when it’s for work. I have been eager to do a tour in London for a while now and this felt like the right time to head over there, meet musicians/promoters , experience cool venues and see what sort of reaction I would get from a different audience in a different city.
My first gig was at Primo Bar on the South Bank – a beautiful hotel bar with a wonderful ambiance and an intimate, cool vibe.
The night before, I had one rehearsal with the fantastic houseband. Just one!!! We pulled it off and had so much fun in the process. [Background vocals: Larissa Svahn, Guitar: Salvatore Iacono, Bass: Tom Kent, Cajon/percussion: Alessio Barelli]. It was a pleasure to perform with these guys. The sound on stage and in the room was fantastic – all thanks to Sound Engineer: Gianluca Massimo.
I performed a few of my own original songs as well as some of my favorite covers.
- Is this Love – Bob Marley (Corinne Bailey Rae version)
- I Deserve – (Kaliné)
- Stranger – (Kaliné)
- Yellow – Coldplay
- One Dance – Drake
- Ki Lo Fe? – (Kaliné)
Thanks so much to Mike Okoigun, Salvatore Iacono and the entire #dreamteam at Late Night Labs for the opportunity to share my story and my songs on this awesome platform that celebrates live music and promotes upcoming artists.
