Lauded by the likes of Elton John, Burt Bacharach, and Carly Simon, acclaimed singer-songwriter, Rumer brings her smooth, soulful sounds to Christ Church, Derry for the artist’s only Irish date this year.
With a voice that readily brings Dusty Springfield and Karen Carpenter to mind, the gig is a rare opportunity to hear the star in such an intimate venue.
Her first album ‘Seasons of my Soul’ was one of the top 40 selling debts of the decade and saw Rumer nominated for 2 BAFTAs.
The night promises to be an evening of high-caliber, beautifully arranged originals such as the sumptuous ‘Aretha’, ‘Slow’ ‘Am I Forgiven’, and ‘Dangerous’. sitting perfectly alongside classics by such diverse artists as Bacharach and David, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, Hall and Oates, and Hugh Prestwood,
Making music sound effortless, is a rare gift, yet there is so much more than the easy listening tag ascribed to her. Music this good, takes a huge talent, and no shortage of commitment to her craft. There can be a real bite and a hurt to her lyrics, unpinning that gloriously honeyed delivery.
Rumer has earned her place at the top table.
Promoting a new album, ‘B-sides and Rarities’, you can expect, all the hits, and some deeper cuts
Belfast’s own Suzanne Savage will provide rich support, playing material from her excellent recent album, ‘Songs from Here’, and much more.
Tickets for the show on the 19th August are available at musiccapital.org
