Baxter Dury, headlined a sell out show at Norwich Arts Centre last night supported by the ever enchanting and increasingly lauded Bessie Turner.
Opening the evening was support act Bessie Turner. Engaging as ever, she played her first ever gig at the Arts Centre with the renowned acoustics perfectly complimenting her soaring voice.
Bessie, a Suffolk singer-songwriter, who started her career via BBC Introducing in early 2017, has already seen success, landing a performance at last year's Latitude Festival, receiving backing from BBC Radio 1 and 6, recording a session for Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 and at Maida Vale.
The headline act of the evening Baxter Dury is the son of rock and roll singer-songwriter Ian Dury who rose to fame in the late 1970s during the punk and new wave era.
Baxter has released numerous singles, EPs and albums, dating back to 2001, throughout his career so far.
His newest album 'Prince of Tears', which was released in October 2017, is an intensely personal, yet brutally open album and is his most ambitious and biggest work to date.
Whilst retaining the natty charm of his previous works, like his debut Len Parrot's Memorial Lift or the acclaimed Happy Soup, Dury this time worked with a full band and orchestra to truly bring the soundscapes of his emotional netherworld to life.

When Mr Dury, the Prince of Tears, took to the stage at the Norwich Arts Centre last night he looked sharp in a pin stripe suit and crisp white shirt with a bottle of red wine in hand - suave, but with a dangerous edge.
Lost in his own world he flung himself into his comprehensive set list, finishing up with the deadly dark but catchy Miami before a short encore.
Baxter Drury is a man who exudes a subtle cool and swagger, it would be very easy to draw comparisons to his late father Ian, as vocally they do at times sound similar, but make no mistake Baxter is very much his own man dancing to his own tune.
