    skye.jpgLast Thursday evening we went to see Skye Edwards (who previously sang with Morcheeba) at The Jazz Café in Camden Town. I’d been to the venue once before to see Judie Tzuke 10 years ago and, having only previously been to stadium concerts, I loved the intimate feel of the much smaller event.

    I discovered Morcheeba quite late on but was immediately impressed by Skye’s vocal talents. I first saw her in conversation last year on “Faith and Music” (ITV1). A brilliant biographical programme discussing vocal artists spiritual beliefs, exploring their back catalog of songs and including a new live performance. She was immediately engaging, her voice so pure and beautiful – I rushed out immediately to buy her new solo album “Mind How You Go”.

    The gig itself was fantastic, we stood downstairs to one side and were able to easily watch her on stage without being blocked or jostled (not something I enjoy!). She was really friendly, chatted easily in between songs AND wore a knock out outfit with a fantastic pair of sparkly shoes! She has released a great cover version of “Feel Good Inc” which I took a while to track down but finally found on a various album (“Me Time”) last week… no problem if you can play the WMA files on itunes but because we use Linux… we needed the mp3.

    My favourite tracks of the night were “Feel Good Inc”, “Solitary”, “What’s Wrong With Me” and then the set she did towards the end of the night without the band. It was captivating to hear just her playing guitar and singing “Not Broken” and “Say Amen” amongst others. A truly memorable evening and I can’t wait to hear what she does next. I recommend you check her out on My Space.

    Hi Sue
    Just wanted to say thanks for the lovely review! How funny… The first singer you saw at the Jazz Cafe was Judie Tzuke. She now sings the lead single on Morcheeba’s new album.
    Take care

    Hello Skye,
    I am honoured that you read my humble page! Thank you for your comment. I can’t wait to hear “Not Broken” again and am also looking forward to Nouvelle Vague’s album this summer – just bet your version of “View to a Kill” is stunning.
    Good luck this year,
    Sue x
