Following her burst on to the music scene in April 2020 with debut single ‘Before I Go’, Kent singer Mimi Webb has quickly rose to be a highly rated talent and at only 21, is destined to shoot straight to the top. Finally taking to the road to promote her the highly anticipated e.p, Seven Shades of Heartbreak – Webb rolls into Glasgow’s East End for a sold out headline show in the beautiful Saint Lukes.
Gaining enormous popularity amongst teenagers, with her TikTok fame helping her catapult her way through the charts, the crowd was quite rightly filled with excitement waiting for Mimi to grace the stage.
First to take to stage was 22 year old Clapton based Millie Turner. Another great example of the high rising female artists in the UK. Despite missing part of the tour due to Covid, she certainly left her mark on the Glasgow crowd.
From a young age during school, Millie started gigging and writing her on music making waves with her fluid, indie electronica. At only aged 16 she spoke with family friend and one half of Lovers Electric, David Turley and began music lessons where he discovered her vocal ability.
This incredible voice certainly echoed its way around Saint Lukes and even added her own unique touch to a cover of Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy.
Fully hyped and packed to the rafters, Glasgow was ready for their headliner. Mimi had complete control of the the room from the get go opening with the ep’s leading single 24/5 making sure she made an instant impact. The passion on the stage was replicated by the crowd who were on hand all but blow the roof off the venue – Little Bit Louder, song two in the set and quite literally the way the crowd go as the night went on.
The way Mimi has the ability to transform her own heartbreak into her lyrics really was captured in her performance that did its job in connecting all fans together. With her fanbase ever growing, the dedication the crowd had for the star was already apparent.
With the set quickly coming to a close, one of the best performances of the night just had to be ‘Dumb Love’ – hearing this song live was a magical experience and summed up Webb’s vocal ability to a tee. During the encore, latest single House On Fire brought so much energy to the room before closing off with Good Without – It seemed very fitting to end on such a high note after such a fantastic evening. The song which focused on her pain of seeing her former lover move on without her made for an emotional performance and one which was memorable for all of the right reasons.
The reactions from the crowd throughout the night, the energy and the passion just proved the love that was there for Mimi and was very telling that the next time we see her back in Glasgow or indeed Scotland, would not be in such intimate quarters – a talented artist that has all the capabilities for the big stage.
