One night at the Roundhouse

Miss Murphy gave a sell out concert at London's Roundhouse last night. As always, she was full of surprises.

The two semi-acoustic opening songs of the show, Modern Timing and the Moloko classic The Time Is Now, were beautifully understated. Roisin has clearly discovered the acoustic setting as a way to display her vocal skills.

Performing the next six songs, starting with You Know Me Better, Roisin entered more familiar territory. However, after Footprints came the evening's biggest musical surprise: a country version of Body Language, sung with a slight Southern slur. Brilliant! Just after the first verse Roisin joked about being the next Shania Twain. Based on last night's performance, I'm sure she could pull it off with ease.

Next on was The Truth, Roisin's collaboration with Handsome Boy Modelling School, featuring a rap by the lady herself. In a sequence of three songs the audience got to hear some soul, country and hip hop. Never before has Roisin displayed her versatility to such an extent.

The show ended with a few audience favourites, including Movie Star and Let Me Know. Tell Everybody and Ramalama (Bang Bang) were reserved for the encore. After that, Roisin and her entourage left the stage, leaving the audience craving for more.

A great night, a great show. An even greater lady!
