Song of the Day: Fit For A King – Tilly Valentine

After accumulating over 175,000 streams with three self-released singles, whilst gaining coverage across BBC Radio One, BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC Radio 6 Music, electronic jazz singer/songwriter, TILLY VALENTINE adds latest effort ‘Fit For A King’ to her impressively growing discography.

Possessing a fresh take of R&B/soul with a hint of jazz, giving the almost three-minute production a vibrant uplift, ‘King For A King’ essentially chronicles when a person doesn’t know when they’re in a perfect relationship – that’s fit for a king!

Before its release last month, ‘Fit For A King’ was featured on BBC Radio One with Huw Stephens, as well as being added to BBC Sounds ‘The Hot List’ and gained further support from BBC Radio 1Xtra.

This one’s a nice little cracker! Check it out below…

Jessica Wilde blends old soul with savvy street defiance on new single ‘Out Of My ooo’

Following her debut ‘Cry For Me’, which was premiered as BBC Radio 1xtra’s ‘Record Of The Week’, Brixton raised singer JESSICA WILDE is ready to sweep you off your feet with a sassy new single ‘Out Of My ooo’.

The single bursts with classic soul style blended with street savvy defiance. This creative fusion reflects her multicultural upbringing; brought up on her St Helenian mother’s obsession with jazz and soul, Jessica doused it with hip hop leanings and set it a light.

With its brass, bouncy bass and finger-clicking strut tempo it’s impossible not to get hooked on ‘Out Of My ooo’ and its attitude infused swing. It’s the type of top songwriting that has seen Jessica sign a publishing deal with Sony ATV and work with luminaries such as Ghetts and Tough Love. Another of her self-penned tracks ‘Strangers Love’ was recently released by renowned Korean K-pop label SM Entertainment and her recent co-write with Rudimental, ‘More Than Anything’ featured vocals from Emile Sande and made their album.

The session at Ne-Yo’s Hollywood studio, with producer Kizzo (Ne-Yo, Afrojack) was a defining moment for Jessica – not only because she survived a bizarre, high speed LA crash moments before the recording began, but because her own project was borne and the basis of her upcoming singles took form. Three months in LA, and several purposefully missed flights later, Jessica returned to London, ready to showcase herself and her music to the world…

With its festive glow and stylish addictive refrain ‘Out Of My ooo’ is set to put Jessica Wilde firmly on the map this winter as an unmissable diverse artist who embraces the best of classic songwriting and instills it with bite.

Hailing from London, five-piece soulful jazz outfit CÉLINE AND THE BLUE are definitely needed in today’s music industry. Starting out the summer of 2018, the female-fronted act seem to have possess a strong connection of a band who have been jamming out together for ten or so years.

‘Learn To Be Alone’ is the cool cats’ third release of this year, following singles, ‘Hide In Your World’ and ‘Just You’, which received attention from the likes of BBC Berkshire – I highly recommend you to check them out sometime…but for now, have a listen to ‘Learn To Be Alone’ below…

Rosie Shaw Delivers A Compelling Female Empowerment Single, ‘In Bloom’, Out Today

Up and coming alternative R&B singer, ROSIE SHAW sings (nope, wrong word) BLOWS with conviction in her brand new single, ‘In Bloom’.

Possessing a rich soulful/gospel – inspired vibe, the single stems from her experience of breaking away from a toxic relationship and blossoming into a stronger person.

‘In Bloom’ is the UK songstress’ second single, following her stunning debut, ‘Trust Issues’, which is about being ‘apologetically jealous’ within a relationship. The single has showcased her as ‘an old soul trapped in a young body’.
