A vocal crowd packed in to Sheffield City Hall on Friday evening to witness a superb singing performance from one of Britain’s finest singer songwriters.

The buoyant crowd were treated to two excellent, yet diversely different support acts in the relatively unknown but very talented American singer songwriter Casey McQuillen and veteran of the stage, Newton Faulkner. Both had an endearing charm, wit and charisma which kept the audience captivated. Faulkner’s smash hit, Dream Catch Me particularly received a rapturous applause.

James Morrison then walked on stage in his trademark nonchalant way and started off with Precious Love, Feels Like the First Time and the song that put him on the map, Undiscovered.

The soulful singer was really flexing his vocal muscles when he delivered relatively new, yet very catchy So Beautiful, Don’t Mess With Love and Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?

Classic crowd pleasers included You Make It Real, Nothing Ever Hurt Like You, This Boy, Up and a stunning acoustic version of Broken Strings – The smash hit he duetted on with Nelly Furtado in 2008.

The Warwickshire-born, 37-year-old engaged with the crowd, who were a real eclectic mix of teenagers to revellers in their mid-fifties, all of which were fully engaged with the orchestrated clapping.

Morrison closed the show with classics’ The Pieces Don’t Fit Anymore and You Give Me Something before a final chance to air his rasping tones in the encore with Power and popular hit Beautiful World.

Just as he entered the stage, Morrison left to a great ovation and signified the end with a beaming smile and an appreciative nod and wave.
