Anyone else going to see Rumer at Ronnie Scott's on June 19?
Good venue for her methinks.

I went and came away slightly underwhelmed. All her songs are sung with much the same arrangement and feel - I think she needs to up the variety. And the comparison with Karen Carpenter - which I can get from Rumer's CDs - wasn't evident at all.

Only one Bacharach song - A House is Not a Home - sung at pedestrian pace and crying out for some orchestral filling.
