JESS GLYNNE – A VOICE TO FILL THE SSE HYDRO
When a solo singer to stands on The SSE Hydro stage, with no more than two backing singers and a five-piece live band AND holds the audience attention for a note-perfect two hours – you know you’re witnessing an incredible talent.
Jess Glynne burst onto the music scene a little over two years ago with vocals on Clean Bandit’s number one hit ‘Rather Be’ and she’s now rocking a sell-out UK arena tour. With deep soulful ballads and rap and RnB influenced mixes, it’s no surprise that every night has been met with rapturous praise.
With very little in the way of stage set and effects, Glynne was joined by two backing singers, three brass musicians (who had ALL the moves), a guitarist and a bassist – and no one missed a beat. The on-stage atmosphere brought out the best in the 10,000 strong Glasgow crowd, causing Glynne to repeatedly remove her monitors in total awe at the noise level.
Her hits, of which she has plenty, were greeted with immense applause. When combined with old school classics such as Beyonce’s ‘Déjà Vu’, Amy Winehouse’s ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’, CeCe Peniston’s ‘Finally’ and Chaka Khans’s ‘I Feel For You’, the Audience. Went. Wild.
She was fierce, relatable and she owned the stage.
