Jess Glynne (02 Academy, Bournemouth – 05/11/15) ★★★★★

By: editor

With 5 Number 1 chart singles and a debut album under the dance-pop divas belt, Jesse Glynn took to the stage at a Sold Out Bournemouth 02 Academy Last night, in what could only be described as an evening of spine tingling vocals.

After a long anticipated wait a backdrop of silver tinsel unveiled giving the illusion of a Christmas atmosphere, the lights go dim and silhouette figures stroll across the stage into position. Sporting a long floaty black cardigan and ankle boots, her hair in two tight fish plaits and a welcoming grin, equipped with two backing singers and band, it is the moment that the crowd have been waiting for.

It is no surprise that in as little as 18 months the North London raised Songstress has made an impressive rise, becoming an established pop star and household name.  Despite the rapid success of the star, the evenings jaw dropping performance question whether Jess Glynn has outshone the 1800 capacity venue. After all, the roaring vocals of the red head could have quite easily filled each corner of a stadium. The audience are definitely in for a pre Christmas treat, with this intimate performance.

Despite all this though, Glynn has remained as humble as ever as her genuine personality and mothering nature projected across to the audience. Constantly asking the spectators if they were alright, she explained that having had a girl faint on a previous date really upset her, as she continued to worry about the crowd becoming dehydrated. Jess Glynn also shows her inquisitive personality as she proves to have done her history on the 02 Academy as she compliments the venue and tells us how she think it is cool that it was built in WW2.

Jess did however, unfortunately make a slight booboo on one of her tracks, not once but twice.  She apologized profusely to the audience. The genuine vulnerability and winning candour, prevailed as she asks for forgiveness. But, to be honest if she didn’t actually say anything I don’t think anyone would have even noticed, as she continued to confidently stride across the stage.

Firm fan favourites were “Right Here” , ” Hold My Hand” and “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself”. Jess performs all her tracks from her debut album and includes this years Children in need single “Take Me Home” the power ballad was performed flawlessly and the highlight of the evening.
