As we embark on what we hope is a Happy New Year following the tumultuous period that was 2016, we move onto bigger and brighter things – artists we believe are set to take this year (and beyond) by storm. Continuing from last year’s talents, lets begin with proceedings in 2017 and talk to you about Jorja Smith.
The ascension of this teenage phenom is truly something to behold, going from unknown to being tipped by many to be the face of British music in the not-to-distant future in the space of 12 months is nothing short of a fairytale come true. But once you hit play on her music it’s very easy to see why as her sonic sound sound of R&B with splashes of acoustic indie combined with her soulful vocals is nothing short of spellbinding.
2016 saw her release her debut autobiographical debut track “Blue Lights” to the world which created the initial buzz, which resulted in the release of her debut EP and ensuing headline tour that cemented all the power lies in her talented hands. Look out world, Jorja’s coming.
