“Headlining we had the beguiling Nigerian songstress Lánre, who held the auditorium in the palm of her hands. Armed only with her personality, her smile and an acoustic guitar, she took us on a journey back to her homeland (via Stoke-on-Trent) painting many vistas and drawing on many emotions with bright African colours – absolutely spellbinding” John Drummond – Brewery Blues
Relish in her soft yet soulful vocals…” – MTV UK
“This utterly soothing new single is well worth a listen.” – MOBO Awards
