It’s a sold out show tonight for the nu soul star Curtis Harding. After a ten minute rap from one his mates with a Go Pro being passed around the audience it’s on with the show.
Curtis Harding is a bit of a throwback to sixties soul laced with a bit of Lenny Kravitz guitar and attitude. He’s touring on the back of his fine debut album, Soul Power, and the set is completely taken from there plus the odd cover including the closer a storming version of Aint No Sunshine.
He shows the whole range of his voice throughout the set and the band ably support him throughout especially the guitarist. It’s a bit of a stop start show though with too many guitar tunings between songs and this loses any sense of momentum that was building. It’s all over in a blink finishing just under the hour mark but we will be back after the next record when there will be more material to draw from.
