REVIEW: Jorja Smith w/ Ama Lou at Electric Brixton

July 23, 2017 | D&L

Thursday night was a great one for live music, as fans of Jorja Smith headed to Brixton’s Electric for her sold out show.

Providing those good old R&B and Soul pre-weekend vibes, the lady of the night didn’t disappoint, as she delivered track favourites with her stunning presence and delivery; but not before Ama Lou hit the stage.

The teenage Londoner took to the stage with her relaxed and welcoming personality, as she performed a selection of her own tracks, as well as a cover of Chance the Rapper’s, ‘Same Drugs’.

Accompanied with a DJ, back up singers and later her guitar for an acoustic moment, the crowd was treated to Soul and Electronic fused sounds, accompanied by her great vocal range, upbeat presence and warmth.

Also proving that she’s not one to shy away from any topic, particularly those that are political, her sound is definitely addictive. Now on the radar of those who hadn’t previously heard of her talent, she definitely gained more supporters on the night, for a sound she has previously described as ‘consistently eclectic, but always producing da bangers’.

Following an interlude, next up it was the headline act that everyone had been waiting for. Entering the stage following the run of visuals playing on the stage backdrop, she was greeted by cheers from the crowd, as she went on to sing the likes of ‘Teenage Fantasy’, ‘Something in the Way’, and ‘Carry Me Home’, where she was joined by Maverick Sabre, much to the delight of her audience.

Also taking the time to share some new material, the UK talent continued to have her audience’s attention throughout, as they couldn’t get enough of her infectious personality, and perfect tones. Did we mention she also looked incredible in a trendy nude two piece, with a crop top and trousers to match, whilst she sported her hair in braids tied up in a pony tail?

From her look, to her stage presence and her sound, the night got a thumbs up from us, and Jorja too, as she later took to social media to touch base with her followers and gig attenders… “Best show eva at Electric Brixton. Ama Lou is also the best eva. All who came are also the best eva. Thank youuu”.
