I’ve always been a little awestruck by VV Brown. I did a shoot with her when she first appeared on the music scene in 2008 and he was so beautiful and friendly, it’s not surprising that she been in Vogue, ID and was featured in fashion ads by Marks & Spencer as well. She also started her own business, VV Vintage, and modelled and performed for Ashish at his London Fashion Week show in February 2009. Her first album Travelling Like the Light was released in the UK in 2009. She is the most synced artist in the UK and has set up her own record label.
On Monday VV Brown performed her new songs to a very excited and super friendly intimate crowd at Birthdays in East London. Her style for this gig was more paired down: no makeup and she’d given up her trademark retro fringe and looked beautiful wearing a white outfit from Cos. She told the crowd that this was only the second time she performed her new material and her second album will come out in the autumn.
I felt like I haven’t had this much fun in ages – the music was great and VV Brown was powerful and mesmerizing. I’m not sure what the set list was but the second song was amazing and the crowd was dancing away, also when she performed a different version of Shark in the Water the crowd couldn’t stop cheering!
