The lovely musical stylings of Amelia Coburn will delight on May 28.
“She’s Wonderful” – Jacqui Abbott (The Beautiful South)
With a voice set to stun and a gift for interpretation that is second to none, Amelia Coburn spends every spare moment rifling through records and filtering the findings through her punky ukulele playing to wow audiences across the North East and increasingly beyond. Think Eva Cassidy if she had spent the whole of 1976 in CBGBs.
To categorise what she plays would be futile but her main influences range from classic, sophisticated pop/rock (David Bowie, Kate Bush, early Elton John) through to Punk, New Wave and the first wave of Indie music (The Smiths, The Jam, Blondie) but she is constantly seeking out hidden gems to drop like bombs on her audiences.
With sell out solo shows and successful songwriters clamouring to work with and for her on original material it’s an exciting time ahead.
