Singer, songwriter, producer extraordinaire Ryan Leslie held the first of back to back concerts last night at the Bowery Ballroom. Having been to other shows of his, I was curious to see if Ryan could keep up his token energetic performance. I was not disappointed. From the moment he stepped on stage and performed his new song “The Glory”, his raw emotion and love for music seeped from his pores into the crowd. In an instant, I knew the show was going to be killer. It was as though the audience knew every single lyric of every single song that was performed. The highlight of the night had to be after the finale when EVERY girl in the audience chanted Ryan’s name and he was forced back on stage to perform an encore. “Zodiac Sign” ripped through the venue and Ryan walked off in true rocker fashion. After every one of his shows, I leave awed by the pure musicianship that he possesses. I know no one felt cheated when they stepped out that place yesterday.
