Lexie welcomed the world to her garden patio and her sun drenched set made us forget our worries. Seil Lien was next up and her vocals soared sending shivers down the collective spines of our viewers. Our strong female lineup continued with fellow Scot Kerri Watt and then the entrancing Anna Wolf. Next we headed to Florida for WD-Han who kick-started the party with a high energy, full band set, which started a cover of The Killers. Lyra then upped the live stream bar with an ingenious full band Zoom call performance of soothing neo-jazz. Harry Heart and Danny Starr provided soothing early evening soundtracks, before King Charles bought the swagger and Katie Melua bought the sophistication.
