International recording star, Alison Moyet bought her world tour to Philadelphia. Alison is out supporting her new album, Other. Other is Alison’s 9th solo release since her days with Yaz in the 1980s.
The iconic and historic theater provided the perfect venue for Alison to showcase several songs from the new record and to satisfying her devoted and passionate fans with her many hits.
The show opened with the ambient spoken-word poem April 10th bringing her to the stage to perform, I Germinate, after minor technical difficulties handed brilliantly with her famous sense of humor.
Other explores a range of topics like middle age, diversity, the internet, and love.
“For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition. Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of middle/aged woman rather thrills me and instead I watch.” She explains.
All Cried Out and Love Resurrection from 1984’s Alf, her solo debut album had the crowd on their feet and Don’t Go from Yaz’s Debut Upstairs at Eric’s amped up the vibe even more.
Her outstanding performance of This House from 1991’s Voodoo, highlighted Alison’s distinguished, bluesy contralto voice. It was bowiesque, it was exquisite.
The electronic pop sound is current and complements the beautiful nuances of her voice.
With a career spanning 35 years, her star shines even brighter.
