Chloe Reynolds review

Chloe Reynolds at the Sage Gateshead – Thursday 1st June 2017

~a guest blog by Cycles with Wolves.

I arrived to the Sage to watch the Anastacia ‘Ultimate Collection’ tour and headed straight in to take my seat.

I was quite intrigued to see Chloe Reynolds perform for the simple fact I hadn’t heard of her before. 

Anyone who was chosen to tour alongside the likes of Marty Pellow and now Anastacia, I had to listen to.  And I was so glad I went and sat in my seat early.

She sang us many songs from her debut album ‘Broken Beautiful’, and the song of the same name reaching no.1 in the UK Christian Charts.  The album is inspired by musical inspirations such as Annie Lennox, Alicia Keys and Snow Patrol.  

Speaking about her album, she said “My songs are the expression of my heart and soul.  If I remain true to myself, by writing about the things on my heart, then hopefully I will touch the hearts of others.

Appearing on stage with a piano she began by opening with ‘Happier’ – a song all about society’s obsession with materialistic objects and whether they actually make you happier.  From the first few bars, it was clear that this is a woman that can actually sing. Her voice wowed us and each song got a roaring ovation.

I could see her easily holding an event the same size all by herself too, as everyone there seemed captivated by her.

She then sang the wonderful ‘Still here’ in memory of the Manchester 22.  A strong voice accompanied by piano, it had beautiful lyrics which just made the entire audience emotional thinking about the effects of the tragedy.

My personal favourite song of hers is “I know it’s real”, a really upbeat and beautiful song about love.  It was beautiful to hear in person and one of those songs that has the potential to go viral as a wedding song.

 

During the interval before Anastacia began her show, we went down to the lobby to meet Chloe who was doing album signings and fan meet and greets. t was lovely to meet her in person and tell her wonderful her voice is. She definitely has the potential to break out of the Christian music mould and become a mainstream star.

I have definitely found someone new to listen to and I can’t recommend the album ‘Broken Beautiful’ enough, it is just full of beautiful songs that are perfect for so many different times in life.
