For a twenty-one year old, Lizzie Reid is mighty impressive. What a joyous gig at King Tut’s. Playing to a house full of adoring fans, Lizzie (vocals and guitar) and her band: James Harker (guitar), Chris Dickie (drums), Bobby Kakouris (backing vocals and percussion)and Andrew Herrington (bass), treated the audience to an exciting and varied set of original songs, penned by the totally-in-command young singer.


I didn’t catch the names of the songs but I particularly enjoyed the two new songs, Lizzie’s mid-set acoustic solo and the final number, which brought the set to an exceptional crescendo with some fast paced indy-rock.

The person on the lights at King Tut’s did a fantastic job contributing to a well thought through gig offering unflagging entertainment.
