Canadian singer-songwriter Scott Helman put on an amazing show at Algonquin Commons Theatre in Ottawa on March 19th, 2019.
Even though Helman’s bus broke down on the way here, thankfully he was still able to make it! He starts the show with his song House Key while sitting beside a light to set the mood. This made the show and created a welcoming atmosphere to make everyone feel at home.
As a Toronto native, he released his debut EP titled Augusta back in 2014. He continued on with Spotify Sessions in 2016 and Hang Ups in 2018. His full album released in Warner Music Canada and was titled Hotel de Ville.
Scott Helman definitely knows how to make a large space feel so intimate. Helman took the time to make the show much more personal by stepping away from the microphone to passionately sing a couple of lines without it.
After a couple giggles shared between the audience and Scott himself, he returned to the mic and carried on the show with so much fire and energy.
Every time Scott prompted the audience to sing his song, the dedicated fans sang back every single word. While his dedicated fans showed their continued support throughout the show, Scott mutually returned the appreciation.
Helman interacted with everyone in the audience. He would wave back and reply to everything shouted at him, not matter how far away they were. He made sure to include everyone. That kind of experience is what makes his show so special.
I can see the love in his fans and the love he has for his music. It will be interesting to see where he goes from here. Scott continues his tour along with his opening tour support in toe.
Scott Helman’s unique voice, ability to interact with everyone and dynamic energy created a show that no one will ever forget.
