Kyla Brox can be tender, urgent and gritty: she blurs the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old.
The daughter of blues singer Victor Brox, Kyla started singing on-stage at the age of 12 and has several albums to her name, including the band triumph Coming Home (2004) and the stripped and sensitive Grey Sky Blue (2009). Performing on various ocassions in a different setting, from band to duo to trio, encourages distinct Kyla's to come to the fore - the salty blues mama in line from Bessie Smith, and the tender soul singer who sets out her hopes and fears in song. She never flinches from emotional reality in either situation, and is undoubtedly the finest UK blues and soul singer of her generation.
Tonight's performance will evoke a combination of them all. Fellow musician and songwriting partner Danny Blomeley and his virtuoso guitar-work, by turns delicate and unrestrained, has earned Danny a following in his own right.
