With last years' Communion tour having highlighted the likes of Eliza And The Bear, tonights' show is all about promoting upcoming artists music lovers might want to keep an eye on. Four piece Pixel Fix from Oxford start off the night to a small gathering as more people filter their way into the venue as they play. Their short set makes for a good start, and their performance of 'Lungs’, already listened to 32 thousand times via their Facebook, certainly wins then a few new fans.
Kimberly Anne, fresh from supporting Ella Eyre, is most certainly one to watch and she holds the audiences' attention from the minute she begins to play. Hugely gifted, she plays the guitar with aplomb, but it's her vocals that leaves the room enchanted. Keen to engage with those before her, she interacts with confidence and warmth, before the power-hit that is 'Roar' leaves her standing tall as she takes in the strong applause.
Paul Dixon, otherwise known as Fyfe, is the most subdued artist of the evening, with songs including 'Solace' being far more thought provoking than any material played so far. He doesn't talk much, preferring to let his music speak for him, but he exits the stage having left his audience with much to think about.
Headliners Amber Run are loud and proud. With a sold out crowd now before them, they deliver an impressive set, ranging from ballads in the form of '5am' to material that allows the Nottingham quintet to show off their fantastic harmonies a la 'I Found'. In truth, their music is nothing hugely special, but their presence on stage ensures that they're much talked about as the show draws to a close.
