19-year-old North West Londoner CHLOE BODUR has been causing quite a stir with her single ‘Glory.’ Fusing elements of neo-soul, jazz and pop, her newest number stole the Track of the Day spot on numerous BBC Introducing stations, as well as being added to rotation on Jazz FM.
Produced by UK Top 10 charting producer JD.Reid (Mabel, Katy B, Sinead Harnett, D Double E), ‘Glory’ focuses on vulnerability and the underlying sense of loneliness. Bodur reveals, “It was originally written as a poem about youth trying to find love in themselves and in others and how one correlates with the other”.
Raised in a mixed heritage family, whilst immersed in vibrant London, Bodur credits her multi-cultural upbringing for her array of musical influences. Idolising the likes of Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra, as well as gaining inspiration from artists such as Quincey Jones, D’angelo and Frank Ocean.
Deemed the most promising new act and already selling out live shows,CHLOE BODUR is ready for the next step of her musical endeavour with the highly anticipated release ‘Glory’, available from yesterday.
This is a great way to start your week; have a listen to ‘Glory.’
