His sound transcends genre, floating between the stratospheres of neo-soul, jazz and R&B. His songwriting flicks between vivid social commentary and personal musings, with his poetic writing style the perfect accompaniment for instrumentals that ooze class and vibrancy.

Hit of The Week: Grace Love ‘Broke’

Grace Love is marking her return with latest single ‘Broke’. Waving the flag for Washington State, the artist is leaving her stamp on punk rock. The track is a slick and empowering moment in Love’s discography, an igniting listen that rebels against romance and champions independence. 

Performing internationally since 2009, the hard-hitting vocalist has been experimenting with new genres and directions on her latest EP ‘Work in Protest’. Usually operating within the spheres of R&B, tracks like ‘Broke’ see Love dabbling in heavier textures to execute more robust and gritty song-writing.

Introducing…Felly

The muses of La Musa: IAMDDB

If the future is female, then it has already started. Diana De Brito is the epitome of a new generation of female artists – young, talented and self-confident. In her music, this daughter of an Angolan musician combines timeless soul and jazz in the tradition of Nat King Cole and Erykah Badu with modern trap and R’n’B. She calls it Urban Jazz, some would say it is Neo Soul – it’s all true, because IAMDDB is anything but one-dimensional.
