It’s one thing to look like Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, but to sing like her to takes some doing.
Oh, and a distinctly naughty sense of humour, of course.
For Kate Headon, the “pure joy” of channelling the Oscar-winning, Grammy-gobbling Tottenham titan meant the challenge was more fun than frightening. As anyone who has witnessed The Ultimate Adele Experience – returning to Greystones on Saturday, November 16th – will tell you.
Formed by a bunch of like-minded, soul-loving, groove-infused friends just last year, this seven-piece band have been knocking ’em dead. A recent sellout show at The Button Factory in Dublin had the full house crowd just take over when it came to songs like Someone Like You, Rolling In The Deep and Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love.
And now they’re coming to little ol’ Greystones, partly because they’ve heard that The Whale is the most kick-ass new venue in the country, but also because local girl Emily McGuinness is in the band. And her family are too lazy to travel to see her in town.
You can catch The Ultimate Adele Experience at The Whale on Saturday, November 16th. In the meantime, we sat down with leading lady Kate to talk soul, heartbreak and being even cooler than the real thing…
