It may have taken three and half years and many many failed or ambushed attempts but it finally happened… I managed to see Andreya Triana perform live! It can serve as a lesson to us all, perseverance sometimes pays off!
It turned out to be a decent show too (and worth the three and a half year wait!). The songs and her performance had a lot more energy than I was expecting. Her album, Lost Where I Belong, is very subtle so I did not expect to dance around half as much as I did. No doubt she was feeling super-charged by her awesome suit complete with fluorescent camouflage – the dream was lived! The high-energy was a teenie problem though because the tent she played in quickly became the worlds hottest sauna.
She did strip it back from time to time, A Song For A Friend, was moving and a beautifully and sparse version of Lost Where I Belong made my afternoon. The set was littered with new songs which whetted the appetite and begged the question, when is a new album coming out? Fingers crossed for one coming soon.
Thoroughly enjoyable start to a day in the sunshine at Lovebox and one of the highlights too. Fingers crossed it won’t take another three and half years to see her perform again!
