Sunday 6th November proved to be a memorable day as the debut CD by ‘Possibility Screams’ was released to an enthusiastic audience at Elliots, Prestwick.
The venue was packed, every artist was incredible and I felt very privileged to be a part of such a successful evening.
Emily Rutter kicked it off in real style with her original piece, We Are Bright”, which contained the brave lyrics, “we are stars of the future”. These words became a prophetic call across the evening as, one by one; we watched these young performers light up the stage. Every artist performed two songs on the night and almost all of these were their own work.
Michael Crawford rocked the house with some great electric guitar licks and we introduced guest vocalist Jeremy Levif, who was sensational as he sang on Michael’s ‘Song For The Future’.
Charlotte Rutter was sensational with her two songs and her voice was flawless throughout her performance.
Lori Smith has such a powerful voice; she stunned the audience when she took to the stage and sang with calm assurance.
Fraser Maxwell dazzled the crowd with lovely acoustic guitar work, as Jeremy came back up to join him on his second offering, ‘Endless Journey’.
Evie O’Hagan Hughes lit up the room with her two songs and shone particularly brightly as she poured her heart out on ’Losing You’.
Guest vocalist Aimee Penman beautifully sang Shirley Husband’s poignant ballad, ‘Holly Blue’ - it was a real tender moment during the evening.
Aimee also sang for Scott Hewitt and was excellent. Scott showed deft touches on his guitar and alongside another wonderful guest vocalist Marc Evans closed the show with energy and fun on the final album track, ‘Wasteland’.
Special mention must go to Erin McNair, from the band ‘Rubicon’, who played fantastic percussion for the acoustic acts during the evening.
Some of the proceeds from the album sales will go to the wonderful charity ‘Cash for Kids’. It was great to see some of their team having fun.
Thank you to all who came, played, sang and made it a brilliant night to remember!
Scott Nicol, Nov 2016.
