It is almost the most beautiful time of the year. Don’t worry; you still have plenty of time for your Christmas shopping, but you can start dusting off your Christmas playlists. Talented American singer/songwriter Sarah Reeves is weeks away from releasing her second Christmas project. ‘More The Merrier’ via Curb/World Entertainment out on November 12.
Make way for what might just be your new favourite song, from a singer that needs to be taken seriously. Leo Sawiken, formerly of The Chordaes, is an artist, poet, multi-talented musician, native New Yorker and expert melody maker. Who also knows his way round a nifty blazer. And his latest drop, ‘Born Too Late’, is a Talk Talk-esque, rock-light delight.
We’re in a new age of female sass. Just ask Dua Lipa and Raye and Anne-Marie and Mabel. And joining this gang of high-heeled empowerment is Allegra, who you may know from her killer hit ‘All About Us’, what with its 10million Tik Tok hits and high rides on all the right charts. Giving Dua a run for her money, seeing as you ask. Not bad for an up-and-coming who, with her new single ‘Used To Miss You’, is firmly up and, er, come!
Bristolian Cassa Jackson is quite the impressive young woman. A trilingual student, Cassa’s love of language is often apparent in the wordplay she uses for her lyrics, writing songs for everyone and everything in her life which brings her joy. Previous track ‘Dear Mum’ ended up on several official Spotify playlists, but it’s new single ‘Learning How To Love’ which has caught our attention.
