Having played Sauchiehall Street's ABC venue last time she was in town, her career trajectory is soaring: she is set to play the Hydro Arena when she arrives next March.
With a slick supporting band of eight smartly-suited men (think Mad Men styling) Miss Emerald did nothing terribly shocking during the evening, except perhaps to kick off her skyscraper shoes when the clock struck ten. A vintage look, inspired by '40s glamour, complemented the music from both of her albums - the retro stylings and her brand of musical homage go hand in hand very nicely.
Secret Lovers was the first shivery track of the evening, and was a dramatic showcase for the tour's high production values, as well as an invitation to the DJ's scratching and sampling, which created a more modern and edgy soundscape. Liquid Lunch followed and its subject matter appeared to strike a chord with the merry Glasgow audience. Back It Up, her first single with Grandmono Records, provided an opportunity to get the crowd singing and clapping along while her seemingly forceful personality also revealed a playful side as she teased, cajoled and enticed.
Emerald explained that soon-to-be-released single I Belong To You was her best bid for a Bond theme tune and indeed Hollywood must surely come knocking on her door.
Dr Wanna Do was a personal favourite, while Excuse My French and Coming Back As A Man explored how her songwriting has developed since the more mainstream offerings of her debut album.
