Kate Voegele and Tyler Hilton
When I saw on gigsandtours that Kate Voegele and Tyler Hilton were playing joint shows across the UK, I was immediately purchasing tickets. The pair both played parts in my favourite TV show of all time, One Tree Hill, and so I felt it was only right to go along and relive the OTH days.
It was also an opportunity to head back up to Birmingham, my second home, for a day during the summer, as I'm currently living in my hometown until term starts up again in September. And it was really nice to be back, so I'm now looking forward to returning again for my studies (also one of my best friends is moving to birms too to start her uni course so I can't wait for that(!)). Ruth and I had a lovely day and also ended up planning our next gig in birms.
Tyler was on first, and he was great. I'd only heard a few of his songs before, but it all sounded great. I love his voice and the country twang it has to it, and he played some country songs too which was so nice to hear (the harmonica made it all 10x better).
And Kate was wonderful. I've been listening to her music for years and knew all the songs she played, so it was just such a lovely evening. Her voice is beeeeautiful and I'm so glad I got to hear it live. And she played my favourite song of her's, which is called Sandcastles, which made it extra special (would 100% recommend giving it a listen, it's stunning).
At the end the pair played a couple of songs together. The final one of which was an old OTH classic, When The Stars Go Blue, which, if you've ever watched the show, I'm sure you'll know very well. It felt so nostalgic.
Overall, the show was brilliant and I had a really great time. I'd happily go and see both of them again.
Until next time.
