Thanks for joining me!
2018 so far has been a turbulent and exciting year. I’ve had the idea of putting together a Paloma Faith tribute since 2014. Ever since a lovely chap called Karl or “Carlos” mentioned that I should learn “Trouble With my Baby” and “I’d Rather Go Blind”, because I had a look and sound of Paloma about me. So I performed Trouble With My Baby, it was (and still is a really fun number), which is why it’s the opener of my show. It was my eye & ear opening experience to her powerhouse vocals and how much fun she is to perform, so I thought my audience’s journey should be similar to mine.
“I’d Rather Go Blind” is another story. It’s a nemesis, one of the most beautiful songs; performed by three of my all time favourite artists: Paloma Faith, Paul Weller and the original, by the incomparable Etta James. I’ve been listening to the Proms version on a loop recently. Fun collaborations are in the pipeline…
So here it is. After four years of putting it off. A tribute to a gorgeous human being both inside and out.
