Tickets ($15) for Emelie Sande will be on sale as of noon time today! AND her opening act is Yuna.
Emelie Sande is an up and coming British R&B songwriter and female crooner who has been making a splash in her home country. This young musician released her debut album, Our Version of Events, earlier this year (yes, it's only March) and her work has already won her the Critics' Choice from the Brit Awards. Emeli's songs and style reflects of a modern Nina Simone. Her voice and music sounds great on the album, so I can only imagine how she is live.
So now is your chance to see her on a nitty gritty NYC night before she blows up and gets whisked away by the major labels for good. Spare the $15 that you were going to use to drink the night away for this moment. Well, in NYC that's about the price of one drink, anyway.
Now about Yuna. If you have Facebook, you might've seen people post her cover of Nirvana's "Come As You Are." Her interpretation of this song establishes her vocal ability to be just as soft and hauntingly beautiful. Yuna is a Malaysian singer songwriter (of the Fiona Apple sort) who's self-titled album is due out in April.
I must reiterate...$15!!! They will perform at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (don't be lazy), on Tuesday, April 24th at 8PM. Now THIS will certainly be a night of great music. Due to previous made plans, I won't be able to go... Trust me, if I could cancel those plans, I would in a hot second.
Emeli Sande's "Next To Me."
Yuna's new single, "Live Your Life."
