As bassist in The Magic Num­bers Michele Sto­dart’s song­writ­ing chops have been over­shad­owed by her brother Romeo. Not any­more. Her de­but solo re­lease, a finely bal­anced col­lec­tion of coun­try-flavoured tales, is a stark de­par­ture from her band du­ties. Sto­dart’s as­sured per­for­mance for a small but ap­pre­cia­tive Academy 2 crowd on Wed­nes­day saw the af­fa­ble singer take a very wel­come step into the lime­light.
