Guy Sebastian – Conscious | Album Review

For those of you who are not familiar with Guy Sebastian, he is an Australian singer-songwriter who first rose to prominence when he became the first ever winner of Australian Idol. Since his win he has had 6 number one singles and a couple of platinum albums. He also became a judge on The X Factor: Australia as well as collaborating with artists such as Lionel Richie.

P!nk – Beautiful Trauma | Album Review

For P!nk fans, it’s been practically too long of a wait for a new album. But P!nk (also known as Alecia Beth Moore), is now back and brighter than ever with Beautiful Trauma. This new album of hers is a lot more stripped back and more reflective than her previous album The Truth About Love, which was released 5 years ago.

His latest offering is a quirky yet soothing ballad which reaches out to a long lost lover. Judging by the meaningful lyrics, “My head’s still spinning, I just need time,” Diaz does not appear to...

‘Gabriel’ starring Paul McGann at the Liverpool Playhouse – A Review

Gabriel is a play set during the 1940’s in Nazi-occupied Guernsey, written by Moira Buffini. It was designed to tell an enthralling, and in parts, comic story of how a family’s life is turned completely upside down, after the body of a man is washed ashore. In some ways, the play succeeds in doing this. Gabriel’s enclosed setting of Becquet’s farmhouse creates a tension that pervades throughout. The play focuses on four female characters, all of whom are very different in terms of their behaviour. However, they all continuously grip onto a sense of normality in the face of such challenging circumstances....
