The muses of La Musa: Ellie Goulding

Much like her predecessors Kate Bush and Imogen Heap, British vocalist Ellie Goulding stands at the forefront of independent-minded mainstream pop. With her unique soprano warble and knack for writing catchy yet emotionally earnest songs, Goulding quickly rose to the top of the U.K. charts with her 2012 debut album, Lights. Her folk-inflected electronic pop sound increasingly drew from electronic influences, touching upon dance music and ambient synth pop .

English pop sensation Ellie Goulding has dropped a new track titled “Easy Lover” featuring the renowned rapper Big Sean. The new single was released alongside an official music video directed by Sophia Ray.

The muses of La Musa: Jorja Smith

19-year-old Jorja Smith has been writing songs since the the age of 11. She found inspiration in her hometown of Walsall, and the political and economic issues she faced. After graduating high school and moving to London, she self-released “Blue Lights”, her debut single, in 2016.  She has since released another single “Where Did I Go” in March of 2016. With comparisons to Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse, Jorja Smith is sure to make waves with her strong lyricism.

Jorja Smith has won the Brit Awards 2018 Critics’ Choice award, putting her in the rarefied company of previous honorees Adele, Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding.
