“Wow! She is going to be a HUGE STAR” – Janice Forsyth (BBC Scotland)

“Pick of the Fringe” – STV & BBC Alba

  “Captivating, theatrical electro pop performance”

Wrenne works, and works hard, for her art. Not only does she possess a startling, striking voice but this is an exciting performance obviously influenced by the theatrical productions of Bjork, Kate Bush and Sia (albeit on a much smaller scale).

There is a throughline to her show, it’s like a concept album being performed live, dealing with ideas of self-discovery and acceptance. Admittedly some of the narrative gets lost in the dynamic staging as Wrenne shifts swiftly and elegantly around the deceptively simple stage using boxes, beams, projections and platforms to bring the story to vivid life.

The music itself moves from Ellie Goulding-style electro pop to deeper darker beats reminiscent of someone like Massive Attack.

Her vocals are incredibly sharp and pure over the backing track (which includes a collaboration with Idris Elba) capturing a real sense of passion and emotion. A couple of acoustic numbers also prove Wrenne is a fine guitarist. She ends meekly asking the audience if we have any questions before a final cover of a Scots pop / rock favourite (we won’t spoil the surprise) reworked in her own unique style. A captivating performer with an extraordinary voice.
