Maverick Sabre // Photoset

20th November | SWX

It’s good to be reminded that the voice is an instrument, and to hear Maverick Sabre dare to put his out there even more so than normal at SWX will only have enhanced the respect his fans have for him. There was no perching atop or lingering beneath supporting musicians. Sabre’s set was primarily acoustic versions of his well-known songs. You never feel like you’re far away from him at any show, but lit up by a single blue light, he seemed closer than ever. From his first song, ‘Slow Down’, onwards, there was always the possibility that the crowd would match him for volume in singing his words back to him out of their own devoted excitement.
