Jorja Smith played a sold-out show at Philly’s The Foundry with Ama Lou as support and we couldn’t have created a better line up if we tried. Both performances were incredibly moving, enlightening and inspiring.
Both Ama Lou and Jorja Smith are powerhouse singer-songwriters, their lyrics are fearless and real, tackling subjects that are relatable while their ethereal voices make each song extra addictive.
To see both performances live felt like a blessing, the entire show was empowering and moving. You could hear a pin drop as Ama Lou stepped up to the mic, immediately gripping the crowd. Playing fan favorites along with testing out new songs, we can’t wait to hear more new music from Ama Lou. Jorja Smith took the stage channeling Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill and the magic didn’t end until her set did. We fell in love with both artists more than we ever have before, and by the reaction of the crowd, we were not alone. It was great to look around at other mesmerized faces of fans basking in both performances. The night felt electric, just being in the presence of these two incredible artists.
Jorja Smith will be playing festivals all over the world this summer, check her tour dates here. Ama Lou will be playing Electrowerkz in London on June 12th and Full Moon Fest in Queens June 30th-July 1st!
