Fantastic support came from Manchester Singer-Songwriter Josephine. Josephine’s 3rd single (due out on 25th February) from her debut album is the title track from the album Portrait, it can be heard here.

    Josephine @ Bush Hall, Feb 6th 2013
    Opening with ‘I think It Was Love’ the Princess of Cheetham Hill’s voice soared to swoon her audience in Bush Hall’s ‘room of mirrors’, on Wednesday February 6th.
    The beauty of Josephine’s confident performance was not only as paired back as anything Lana Del Ray has given recently, but peppered with wit and humour to match the diverse age-group of her audience! As with most of the audience I was bearing witness to an enigma devoid of contemporary reference points! Just as Amie and Del Ray forced us to score back decades; Josephine too, requires us to articulate her influences in witnessing and listing. Her sense of introspection echoed those early works of Janis Ian in ‘Between The Lines’ and ‘Aftertones’ while her voice was truly exquisite.
    Wednesday’s show [with her accompaniment, Steve] may have functioned as a rest-bite from touring with Paloma Faith, but for Josephine audience it certainly was an impressive interlude. Running through from ‘I Pray That I Move’ to ‘Portrait’, Josephine’s post Warholian observations reflects on the contemporary question – of not how but which portrait to choose. ‘How would I know?’ would even satisfy someone like Dylan or Cohen!
    As the great Liverpooludian; John Lennon belloing out in ‘Whatever Get’s You Through The Night’, Josephine reminds us – prior to ‘What A Day’, that whatever works – use it. Like Kiki Dee she’s got the music in her – she’s the real deal. One of those [rear] archetypical voices who has something worth saying. Then, as if hailing from the Appalachian Mountains she plucks her strings to ‘Pepper Shaker’ before following up with the more acoustic version of ‘Original Love’. I would recommend you listed to the album ‘Portrait’ to hear how she harmonises her protesting passion of questioning reality. On Wednesday the audience not only got the full monty of her debut album but four additional songs that didn’t get there. Finished with ‘The Last Minute’ and ‘A Freak A’ before her exquisite ‘House Of Mirrors’ Bush Hall erupted and of course, clamoured for an encore. Something, Josephine told all present – she enjoys delivering. As I write this, Josephine’s supporting Paloma Faith, but she’s going to be headlining in April. Miss her at your pearl! I’ve got my ticket for The Tabernacle on the 18th.
