JP Cooper is The Man From Manchester that can sing like Missouri. From his first song, he had more riffs than a Christina Aguilera Gospel Album, and the crowd loved it.

Concert Review: Lewis Capaldi Sings To Heartbreak At Hammerstein

Watching Lewis Capaldi’s voice at Manhattan Hammerstein Ballroom, helped me realize the truth of what I call “The Power of Sheeran”. Like Ed, Lewis Capaldi understands that an easy, guitar melody is a platform from which a broken heart can sing. Through enrapturing hooks, Lewis showed the approachability of loneliness. There Lewis stood, front and… Continue reading Concert Review: Lewis Capaldi Sings To Heartbreak At Hammerstein
