Behind Closed Doors: theSpace @ Surgeons Hall – Fleming Theatre
24th August 2022
After two sell-out runs at the Fringe in 2019 and 2021, The Songsmiths are back with their new show, Behind Closed Doors! Leeds’ premier a cappella group combine songs from their upcoming EP with uplifting and introspective music including hits by The Bee Gees, Scissor Sisters and Billie Eilish.
It’s clear to see why The Songsmiths are award winning, or should I say it’s clear to hear? The harmonies are excellent throughout the upbeat set. There is a large cast and yet all the voices blend together brilliantly to create a multi-layered acapella group. Clever choreography adds to the fun and has the audience bopping along. Made from members who have been in the group for years to newer members who have only been there for several weeks, the voices blend excellently together and it is clear that every voice is valued. The group share the lead vocals well and along with beatboxing the cast are clearly very talented. At times the bass could be richer and soprano could be highlighted but this is a minor point of what is a really great set. Full of upbeat, uplifting numbers, the arrangements are fantastic to show off the brilliant harmonies and depth to the vocals.
