It’s rare seeing a concert where the opening act and the headliner are equally good. Liam Bailey and Paloma Faith had so much energy and presence; either one could headline their own shows.

Influenced by Etta James and Billie Holliday, Soul singer Paloma Faith is on the Autumn Tour promoting her new album, A Perfect Contradiction.

Seeing Faith’s show is like being transported to a 1961 dinner club. She is such a great performer and her voice is like a full-bodied Manhattan.

I never expected her to be so funny. I loved the story about how Diane Warren came to write “Only Love Can Hurt Like This.” Knowing the part of London she comes from, Paloma Faith had me laughing hysterically.

Check out A Perfect Contradiction by Paloma Faith and Definitley Now by Liam Bailey. You will not be disappointed.
