Close Enough to Fame
This would be considered the fourth time I see R.LUM.R perform and I will probably keep on going. Since I first heard his music, I was hooked, and truly have never believed in an artist more than Reggie. As friends now, I really hope to keep supporting him as he continues to venture on into the industry and achieve so much more.
With already his own headlining tour, a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and numerous co-writes and collaborations, the artist is on a golden path to fame. He recently released his album “AfterImage” this past summer, and since then has been crushing it with the streaming game. With already 26 million streams on his single “Frustrated”, he has proven that people are devoted and in love with the fabrications this designer of sound creates.
The other night, R.LUM.R performed at the Cambridge’s Sonia, and I was beyond excited to see the crowd and the energy that filled the space.
With a smile across his face, he sang all of his greatest hits, as well as performed some of his notable covers including The 1975’s “Somebody Else”, Frank Ocean’s “Thinking ‘Bout You”, and Bonnie Raitt’s “Can’t Make You Love Me”.
With a stunningly simple stage set up with diamond lights that changed into various hues of color according to the mood of the song, the crowd danced, sang, and moved to the sonic waves of the room.
R.LUM.R, barefoot on the stage, performed with force, charisma, and class. He commanded the crowd with happiness, throwing up his shaka for all to reciprocate the gesture. All were hanging loose and free and all were shouting statements of adoration.
Once again, it was a stunning and mind blowing performance with some of my favorite tracks, including: “Tell Me”,“Bleed Into the Water” and “Close Enough”. When it came to “Bleed Into the Water”, the crowd was getting so into it, they were bumping, grinding, dancing, swaying, and singing– it was a wonderful atmosphere of euphoria.
Truly an experience to not miss, from someone as talented as R.LUM.R. I am excited to see where he will go from here!
