Atlanta’s Sambuca was filled with the soul stirring sounds of R&B at the BMI hosted “Ladies Night Out” Tuesday. Highlighting up and coming talent, including Sammie and Unique, Sambuca was packed with industry tastemakers and fans that also witnessed a special performance from promising N.A.R.S. recording artist and songwriter Kevin Cossom.
Joined by two talented vocalists, one being famed vocal coach Doc Holliday, and a live band featuring Stevie J and J Dubb, Cossom “brought the house down,” according to Singersroom’s Lauren Walker.
Performing the single “Late Night,” a refreshing mid tempo jam, Cossom kept the crowd at Sambuca moving and anticipating more.
“Standing at approximately 6’3″ he put on quite the performance, getting great stage coverage with his long frame by leaning down and singing with the mic stand in his hands,” says Walker.
Performing a short set, Cossom received a standing ovation, as he immediately exited the stage. Yung Joc, the night’s host, wouldn’t hear of the talented singer being done so soon and brought him back for an encore performance. After apologizing for not having more prepared, Cossom performed “Good Morning Heartache” at the request of Doc Holliday, who took the helm of a nearby keyboard.
Kevin Cossom definitely set the bar high, bringing down the house of the jazz cafÃ©. According to Walker, “Cossom is definitely the one to watch, we better jump on board now because he’s sure to take off like a rocket.”
