An artist who really knows how to make an entrance and then grab the crowd to never let them go. Given it’s not my usual genre of music, for the first ten minutes I’m determined not to be won over. But then! What’s that? Is that a foot tapping? Is that a shoulder gently grinding to the rhythm? I believe it is…And this is Lulu James at SoundCity Liverpool on Friday night. Like some NE amalgam of Grace Jones and Donna Summer with an absolutely bang up to the minute sound and strut, Ms James has to be reaching for the top. She’s 21 and she owns the stage already. Think only the US of A can do this stuff? Revise that opinion, this is the NE invasion.
