Latitude 2014

George Ezra attracts quite the crowd at Latitude 2014

The ‘Wanted On Voyage’ singer fills up the BBC 6music tent and then some.

It’s no secret that when the first signs of rain emerge at a festival, everyone heads for the tents. Unfortunately for any punters fearful of the possible downpour this Sunday afternoon, the BBC 6music tent is already overflowing with people. That George Ezra’s to blame for that.

Packing out the second largest venue on the Latitude site this weekend is no mean feat, but for Ezra, he seems entirely unfazed: he’s the same chirpy, cheeky fellow that the crowd have come to know and love. Complete with his incredible voice (one that some of his audience still can’t quite believe he actually possesses) and a full live band, Ezra’s performance is like no other. With whispers of ‘being best male vocalist to have emerged in recent years’ rippling through the crowd, his songs shimmer with emotion as his blues-y infused tracks ring out amongst the crowd.

Highlights come in the form of the echoing 'Cassy-O' which booms around the tent joyously, and the delicate 'Did You Hear The Rain?', before his solo section boasts the story behind 'Leaving It Up To You?' and just how he came to be without a choir. Luckily, his doting crowd come to his aid without him even having to ask.

Personable yet incredibly impressive - after all, who else manages to be that tiny bit self-deprecating whilst sounding quite so good - if there's one musician who's bound to have bowled over the Latitude crowd this weekend, it's George. No wonder he's such a big fan of the festival…
