Tamar opened with a great 5-song acoustic set. She sounds really great live and has great stage presence. I wanted a few more songs, especially “March Mornings”… next time.
And Ellie… oh Ellie! It was Ellie’s first show in the US and she was insane. She killed it! She was amazing. Earlier in the day she tweeted that she was feeling sick, but I would never have known from the show. She even did some drumming during the set! It was insane to watch and the audience went crazy each time. She just released her first EP in the US called An Introduction to Ellie Goulding. Hopefully she will release her album (and maybe a few new songs) in the US and will play a few more shows in LA because I need to see her again… I’m seriously still buzzing.
I’ll post a few review, more pictures and maybe some video soon.
Ellie is playing one more show in the US, in New York tomorrow (09.30.10) at the Hiro Ballroom.. grab a ticket right now before it sells out (it will).
Be sure to grab a copy of Tamar Kaprelian‘s album, Sinner or Saint and Ellie Goulding‘s US EP – An Introduction to Ellie Goulding and her UK album Lights. (It’s worth the price…. I’d say skip the EP and just get the album).
