Gig Review: Camille O'Sullivan - Feel - London Wonderground Southbank Centre ✭✭✭✭✭

Camille O'Sullivan
London Wonderground

Tuesday 15th May: Camille O'Sullivan, currently in the middle of a UK tour, premiered her show Feel in the gorgeous venue that is the Spiegeltent, Priceless London Wonderground at Southbank Centre. 

A lovely intimate setting, with dresses hanging down from the wooden beams, small mirorball, a star tambourine and the stage strewn with red pea-lights over the drums, piano and music stands.

Houselights out, stage showered with smouldering purple, red and blue lighting, and Camille enters through the audience, lightly brushing the back of heads with her hand, covered in a hooded red cape, and graces the stage singing Arcade Fire's Wake Up. She plays with various props, a bird in a cage, puts on donkey ears and this all adds to the quirky yet charming show.

Camille's intoxicating vocals have a huskiness about them, which show off well in Crack Of Doom, and an even edgier, raspiness in blues number Sugar In My Bowl. Other artists covered include Nick Cave, Bob Dylan and Nina Simone to name a few, backed by a band of four on keyboards, drums, guitars and trombone.

With a standing ovation at the end from the sold out Spiegeltent audience, Camille did two more songs, before donning a red trilby hat and leaving the stage through the audience.

A wonderful performance from a first class entertainer. ✭✭✭✭✭
