Yumi and the Weather, Outpost 3 and Shallow Honey at The Factory Live, Worthing, 6th July 2022
It’s always interesting to see an artist grow over the years, and Yumi and the Weather (the brainchild and alter ego of Ruby Taylor) is a fine example of how to hone and develop your skills to keep reaching a new audience whilst retaining those who have supported from the start. With the ability to switch pace and genre, last night’s performance at The Factory Live was a great showcase of their talent, and even came with an offer of merch available for cash or croissants.
The venue is tucked away on an industrial estate in Worthing but has a great layout, sound and lighting – let’s hope it continues to attract more acts in, as there is definitely a change in the air of what was once hailed a sleepy seaside town.
A good night all round, with no option than for the crowd to warm up with solid sets from supports Shallow Honey and Outpost 3; gallery below.
