British and Australian. Perfect tour. British singer Maisie Peters and Australian singer Jack Gray took the Troubadour by storm on October 21st and the crowd came in numbers too.
First, Jack Gray took the stage of the iconic Troubadour at immediately captured girls attention with his soft voice and skilled instrument playing on the piano and guitar. Last time we saw Gray was an acoustic set, but now he has his band backing him, adding so much more energy to the show. His songs are simple, relatable and personal allowing everyone in the crowd connect with him.
His charming looks and bright smile got everyone dancing on the fun, up-beat songs such as “Down Side of Up” and “Fools.” His set made for a great opening and for sure we will be seeing him heading venues in no time.
After Gray finished and humbly helped take down his set, Maisie Peters graced the stage after her intro song “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”. Peter’s brought her British vocabulary calling us “you bunch” instead of “you guys or y’all,” as heard in America. Peter’s brought her talented songwriting music to the stage and made everyone weep and also have fun at the same time. Peter’s made everyone feel like they were in a movie, being sung to at the lake, with clear skies full of stars above them and it was just her and her guitar singing to us.
Peter’s opened up with her song “Stay Young” which is a great song about just having a great time and to be carefree sometimes. It’s all about having fun and being young forever. Her ADELE like storytelling with the up-beateness and her soft Duffy like voice, Peter’s sang all her songs with passion and heart. The show was a big love diary, as if we were about to be warped into a fairy tale movie.
Peter’s closed with her songs “Personal Best” and her fan favorite “Worst Of You.” Since the she ended on was a little negative, Peter’s blasted “Dancing Queen” by ABBA over the speakers letting everyone have one final dance before the venue emptied.
Overall the show was a great way to start the week on a Monday.
