Skye Edwards, the frontwoman of Morcheeba and solo artist who was in town to support her latest effort, Back to Now may strike the observer as an unusual frontwoman. Speaking with a soft-spoken London accent, Edwards initially seems to be almost prototypically British – reserved and exceedingly polite. However, the material off her newest effort is sleek, polished to a sheen and incredibly seductive in the same fashion of the great disco albums of the 1970s – think Donna Summer,Anita Ward and the like with their vocalists cooing sexy come-ons and you’ll have a great sense of what Edwards’ sound is like.
So last Thursday, I caught Skye and her backing band at Joe’s Pub and was quite impressed. There’s photographic evidence of the events below.
