REVIEW: Witty Imogen is one to watch

Imogen Rae.
Imogen Rae.

The Heron Theatre in Beetham has a certain ambience that lent itself to the talents of local singer/songwriter Imogen Rae.

She took the audience on a journey, experiencing her life, her travels and the people she has encountered along the way. I felt I’d been with her and seen what she had seen.

Clever, witty and emotive lyrics mixed with beautiful melodies, accompanied by the fabulous tones of the cello and clarinet played by Hazel Brown.

Imogen’s songs tell you stories, they grip you and you want to listen.

Most of the numbers were from her first album ‘Breathless’, itself a beautifully haunting song, which did just that and left me breathless.
