DONNA MISSAL // LIVE AT JOHNNY BRENDA’S

PHOTOS + WORDS COURTESY OF: Carolyn Lederach

There’s a huge appreciation for artists who never stop hustling. Donna Missal is a perfect example of this. Coming off her newest album, This Time, released last year and the incredibly moody newest single, “Get Well”. I’ll be honest, I went into this show not knowing much about Donna, but walked into one of the best performances I’ve seen this year. There’s always something special about a sold out show at Johnny Brenda’s and Donna brought her A-Game! Pay attention to Donna Missal and don’t miss out next time she’s through your town!

James Bay’s Electric Light US Tour is in full swing. We caught him at the packed out Philly show in the brand new Metropolitan Opera House. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen James live (several years in fact), but he never disappoints. Throwing his classic jams in with some brand new tunes, such as the newest single “Peer Pressure”.

ANDERSON EAST + LUCIE SILVAS // LIVE AT MERCURY BALLROOM

Alabama Soul/Americana/R&B artist Anderson East made a stop recently in Louisville. KY on his Encore World Tour. The venue was packed this evening with plenty of fans, many of whom have followed him throughout his 10 year career. East exudes a soulful stage presence, with the passion he feels for his music present on his face as he sings. As he came out onto the stage with his band, he thanked the crowd for being there and said how great it was to be back in Louisville. He sang hits such as “Satisfy Me”, “Surrender” and “All On My Mind” and had the crowd singing along and dancing to the more upbeat songs, while standing with rapt attention to the slower ballads. Dancing around the stage and interacting with the audience, he elicited a great crowd response throughout his set! Towards the end of his set, he brought out the opening artist, Lucie Silvas, for a really fun and amazing cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” that really got the crowd dancing and cheering! East really loves and appreciates his fans and gave them a really wonderful evening of music.
