Breakout singer-songwriter Mimi Webb arrives in Leeds to deliver an intimate acoustic set, featuring songs from her debut album Amelia, which has just been released on the 3rd March.
It's easy to see why Mimi is flying high both at home and across the Atlantic. With a devout following, of many who queued hours before, a forth coming tour, and taking on main stage of the UK largest music festivals this summer, Mimi is destined for a huge career.
This evening, Mimi delighted the crowd with a pitch perfect short set, taking plenty of time to interact with fans. Questioning them on their favourite songs, explaining the background of a song, before delivering to a singalong.
If this is an appetiser for what's to come when Mimi set off on her full tour, then Europe and the UK are in for a real treat. For those who are lucky enough to have a ticket, they'll see another side, the full experience as delivered in the album. As for tonight, it was a true delight, with fans leaving Leeds with beaming smiles. A short wait until April, when they get to go again.
Check out Mimi’s highly anticipated debut album, Amelia, which features 12 tracks including her smash hits “House On Fire,” “Ghost of You,” and latest single “Red Flags.” The album is titled after her full first name, Amelia, which will give fans insight into both sides of the budding star- Amelia, the girl from the UK countryside who loves to be at home with her family, friends, and dogs; and Mimi, the pop artist who loves to be up on stage traveling the world. Amelia is available to order now.
In just two years the breakout artist has racked up over 900 million global streams to date, and multiple chart-topping tracks including “House on Fire,” “Good Without,” and most recently “Red Flags.” Mimi has performed at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in London, numerous festivals such as Capital FM’s Summertime Ball, Isle of Wight Festival, and Montreux Jazz Festival, and on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Graham Norton Show and ELLEN. She was nominated Best New Artist at the 2023 BRIT Awards and has garnered praise from the likes of British Vogue, Rolling Stone, Harper’s BAZAAR, GRAMMY.com, and Billboard. Mimi shows no signs of slowing down as she gears up for the release of her debut album.

ABOUT MIMI WEBB
Mimi Webb projects a voice as magnetic, massive, and magical as her personality. As “the girl next door” with a hell of vocal range, she’s quick to laugh, will let you know precisely what’s on her mind, and isn’t afraid to be heard. Originally hailing from the UK town of Canterbury, the pop singer and songwriter turns up the volume on every emotion with skyscraping runs and open-heart honesty.
Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse, Emelie Sandé, and Sam Smith, she started writing songs of her own at 13-years-old in diaries before eventually learning guitar. Around the same time, she enrolled in The BRIT School—known for alumni such as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Jessie J, and more. Three years later, she left home, moved in with a host family, and attended the prestigious BIMM [British Institute of Modern Music]. In 2019, she landed management, and inked a deal with Epic Records, followed by the release of her debut single “Before I Go” in 2020.
In a whirlwind two years, Mimi released her debut EP Seven Shades of Heartbreak (October 2021), amassed an international following with multiple hit tracks such as “House on Fire,” and “Good Without,” and became the first British female artist, since Dua Lipa in 2017, to land two singles in the UK Top 15 before her debut album.She has surpassed 900 million global streams to date and toured across the world- performing at festivals such as Capital FM’s Summertime Ball, Isle of Wight Festival, and Montreux Jazz Festival, as well as her own headline tours. Mimi has garnered critical acclaim from the likes of British Vogue, Rolling Stone, Harper’s BAZAAR, Billboard, and CLASH, and performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and ELLEN. Mimi’s highly anticipated debut album, Amelia will be released on March 3, 2023.
