Gig Review: Rhys Lewis, Mercury Lounge

I was only at the Mercury Lounge a few weeks ago watching Ryan McMullan perform in a small room, but here I was again watching another UK import, Rhys Lewis just last week. I’m very fond of an intimate gig as I feel the artist is much more at home…

Gig Review: Lewis Capaldi, Croxteth Park

My gig reviews are getting quite repetitive. Apart from Fleetwood Mac, it seems all the acts I’ve recently seen are ones that I’ve already seen live before. Westlife, Picture This and now Lewis Capaldi. I just wish I had started writing these reviews a lot earlier as I’ve seen a…
