Ryan Anderson at Foundations Music was kind enough to set us up with a photo pass to see Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane on Monday, October 19. As with all our concert reviews, we take photos, talk about the show, and promote the artists. That is, of course, if they’re cool. Unfortunately, we sometimes pass on coverage after a show. Maybe their photo contract stinks or they don’t play a show worth reviewing. Thankfully, watching Owl City at The Gothic Theatre was awesome. Rozzi Crane opened the show with some mad vocals, and Owl City rocked out. We’re glad we were there, but let’s get to the artists.
Rozzi Crane at The Gothic Theatre
Rozzi Crane was great. Her powerful, bluesy/soul vocals were amazing but hard to define. She doesn’t fit into a single genre. I’d say she’s a blend of Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, and Idina Menzel. Her vocal gymnastics were on point for the whole set. She was also really good at working the crowd. Most new artists have awful stage presence… not Rozzi. I enjoyed her playfulness; it made it very easy to like her.
Apparently, Adam Levine likes her too. He signed her as the first artist on his new record label: 222 Records. Rozzi Crane’s music is available on Spotify right now. If you like her sound, snag her new EP to show her some support.
