Kali Uchis commanded the stage and captivated the audience when she brought her In Your Dreams Tour to Phoenix. Her highly anticipated, sold out show did not fail to deliver. If the winding line around the block was any indication, Kali Uchis is well loved in Arizona. Her poppy, Selena-esque sounds is very popular and resonates with many young people. The young latina is making a name for herself in the music industry. Her recently released, debut album ‘Isolation’ features several established artists, such as Tyler, The Creator, which further prove the talent she has. Her melancholy songs about falling in and out of love make her increasingly relatable. Her voice pulls listeners in and holds them in a trance. It’s impossible to look away from her when she is performing. Uchis’ performance was cinematic. From the moment her silhouette popped up on stage, the show-goers were enticed and the rest of the world fell away. Complete with singing, dancing, and personal commentary, Uchis’ show was extremely dynamic. It was dramatic and showy, but also deeply personal. She put on more than a performance; she intimately bonded with her audience. Not many breakout artists can do what Kali Uchis is doing. She is definitely one to watch. Kali Uchis is on tour through November. Grab tickets before it’s too late.
