Gina Dootson has received plaudits from fans and critics alike as both a solo performer and as part of a duo, her performance at Ocean 11 in Leeds gave a new audience the chance to see Gina with her full band. Playing a new venue can be daunting but Gina thrilled the crowd with a stunning and confident performance with a mixture of mainly her own songs, from her acclaimed CD “3AM Generation” to some covers such as a memorable version of Dolly Parton’s "Jolene". The incredible voice coming from such a petite frame takes the audience by surprise, as each song is sung with power and vigour, yet without any trace of a strained or tortured note. Following appearances at The New Roscoe and now Ocean 11 it is hoped that the music lovers of Leeds will be fortunate to see more of Gina, as she is a talent that has to be seen at every available opportunity.
