Geovarn Live Show
Along with a few others from RnBrit, we were lucky enough to be invited to see British R&B singer Geovarn’s show, with support from fellow singer Madison Paris (we have been big fans of both of these acts: see here, here and here).
This is the second show that I have been to at Camden Assembly and as I stated before, it is a great venue for intimate gigs. A huge thank you to the man himself, Geovarn, for inviting us down!
After a DJ set from CTRLSHFTLDN, Madison Paris opened up the night, bringing amazing energy and warming the crowd up. She balanced slower songs that showed off her voice with more upbeat songs like ‘Skin Good’ that allowed her to just have fun and dance on stage. Madison introduced each song nicely, giving us information about its context and genre, and she done this really confidently which should be applauded as a lot of artists might get so nervous in front of crowds that they begin mumbling.
By the time that Geovarn came on, the crowd was hyped and ready. Geovarn opened his set by giving us a taste of what was to come after his incredible album ‘Mean’. Like Madison, Geovarn seemed really confident on stage, also giving the crowd insight into each song. The crowd was even entertained by Geovarn’s stories of growing up in Jamaica, where he was forced to sing his banana song to his whole class.
Geovarn continued to interact with the audience throughout the show, bringing fans on stage several times to dance or sing. Two fans duetted with Geovarn: one to perform a cover of ‘7 Days’ by Craig David and another for a song that the two made on the spot. I found out after the show that this singer was another UK R&B artist, Lylo Gold.
Geovarn closed his set with the popular ‘Good Thing’, taken from his latest album ‘Mean’ and which samples the classic R&B song ‘The Boy Is Mine’ by Brandy and Monica.
