A newly released Debut Album, a sold out EU tour and a Brit Nomination- what’s next for this Gen-Z Pop Sensation?
Gaining a cult following through lockdown, and Tik Tok launching her music career: Mimi Webb’s relatable likability is no doubt the source of her success as a singer songwriter.
At only 22, she has landed two UK Top 15 singles and masses of support from the likes of British Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Billboard; before even the release of her long anticipated debut album.
RGM were lucky enough to attend the Manchester date of her ‘Luck Of The Draw’ ‘Ever So Intimate’ Acoustic shows.
It promised nothing less than a stripped back and raw rendition of her most popular hits as well as a listen in to her brand new debut album. The young superstar (I imagine) will also be promoting her massive O2 Victoria Warehouse show for later this month.
Held at Academy 2 with a capacity of only 950- there was no doubt in my mind this was going to feel incredibly personal and memorable to Mimi’s fans.
A show for the girlies, you can feel the sense of union throughout the audience. Mums, with their little girls and teenagers on a girl night out- this really seems to be a show for everyone.
The stage is set modestly, with a singular piano and two chairs in true ‘record store performance fashion’.
Joined by her guitarist and DJ/Pianist, Mimi bounds on stage as giddy as the fans watching her- first asking ‘Does everyone like the new album?’.
No surprise, she is met with cheers and screams of endearment.
Spotted front row, are an array of fan made signs for Mimi to see as well as a bunch of gorgeous flowers brought by someone in the crowd.
The young superstar starts with cult classic ‘Red Flag’ a song that like her others has gone viral on TikTok.
Unlike usual acoustic shows, this seems more like a karaoke and although stripped back- this stripped back set has the atmosphere of a big production concert.
Next is a ‘self love’ track called ‘Amelia’ one of the newest songs on her debut album.
‘Freezing’, ‘Last Train To London’ are all perfumed with the most mesmerising of vocals. At only 22, Mimi has the most powerful vocals and performance skills similar I’m sure to the pop divas she has grown up with.
Mimi ends the show with a casual style; chit chat Q&A with fans, which again adds a real sentiment to this extra special acoustic show.
RGM can’t wait to see this performance differs later in the month, and what’s next for Mimi in her musical journey.
