Opening the set with the hauntingly beautiful Uninvited, Louise instantly shows off her powerful and very theatrical vocals, which adapt to the song effortlessly. She is joined on the small stage by a drummer, guitar, bass player and two backing vocalists, whilst on the floor behind the piano is her Musical Director Craig Adams, who has a done a great job with the arrangements.

Purely playing songs from the new album, there is a good range of tracks on offer, Here Comes The Sun is one of those you can listen to over and over again, along with See The Day which took us into a short interval.

The second half had a special guest, Steve Balsamo, who joined Louise for Time After Time. One of my favourite songs from the album was up next, One Day I'll Fly Away... just wonderful to listen to.
Final song of the night Little Bird is a great up-tempo number, giving us the chance to sing along with the 'ooo ooo's'. Great fun!

As album launches go, and I've been to a fair few, this was at the top of them.
Faultless vocals, great songs to listen to, wonderful arrangements, and I even had Lee Mead stood right behind me in the first half!
