ALX at the Garrison, Saturday, March 24. Rating: NNN
Theatrically-inclined singer/songwriter Allie Hughes has recently reinvented herself as a synth-pop artist, and her CMW gig was only her second as ALX.
Existing fans shouldn't worry though: many of the new songs are simply updates of her former material.
On a sonic level, reworking her tunes with the help of producer Damian Taylor is a smart move, and makes her far more marketable.
However, she came across as suprisingly unsure of her new identity onstage, at least in comparison to her usual confidence.
