Review By Darren McIntyre Images By Scott Anderson

Amilia Coburn is a darkness in light and has the ability to fill songs with whimsical rpmance and has the knack for making the unusual sound timeless. Amelia grew up listening to the likes of Elton John, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Rufus Wainwright, Lisa Minelli & David Bowie. Her work is populated with the characters she meets in the dark shadows of literature. She lets her songs bring us songs full of lullabies, folk tunes and easy listening ditties, the night is a journey between the Moon & The Milkman and tonight she stops off in Glasgow at the start of her UK Tour to take us on a journey through the darkness & the light. McChuill’s is a perfect setting for tonight’s entertainment that is darkly lit and has a tabled setting that just allows us to be mesmerised by this Middlesborough lass, as the night opens Amelia tells us a little about her and her journey to get to this point as she rolls straight into –

When The Tide Rolls In – A sweet mellow acoustic guitar brings this track to life as the band join us and let the tone flow effortlessly into this fantastic venue, We get folk tinged vocals that bring the depth and mystery to this fantastic arrangement as the boys deliver a well rehersed musical rendition that just allows this track to take us on the journey as we lose ourselves in the delicious tone that is letting this fantastic track breathe.
