Here’s three recent performance videos I didn’t previously get a chance to post on here:

Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Soho:

I’m not really certain whether I feel this way because of my nature, or because I should actually be unsatisfied, but either way that’s how I feel. Last night I performed at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club for a third time (thanks to Ruby Sings) – a feat which Hip Hop artists can’t often boast. It was great – great in the sense that for various reasons I had a good time before, during and after, but where I feel void is with my performance. I can do better.

We rocked the crowd, partially down to the brilliance of my band (The Street Orchestra), my amazing backing vocalist (Debbie Aramide), the songs, the overall vibe, and flashes of my better form, but for me that doesn’t mean anything if I don’t leave the stage feeling I performed to at least 90% of my capacity. There’s always that unobtainable-10%-margin down to being human, but I feel like I was a good 10% below that line; for me, that’s not good enough. I’m going to make sure I work harder in rehearsal, and out of rehearsal – the next show will be something.

Towards the end of last year, I performed at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club with The Street Orchestra. We became the first Hip Hop band to play at the bar in history, an honour which I will forever cherish. Beyonder of DCosmic.com swung through to film a little interview piece, as well as some of the performance. Check out his footage:
