Boy, was I in for a treat when I discovered this Scottish girl with a dope haircut hailing from the UK. Upon my initial search, I'd read quite a few articles, watched interviews and there I was, an instant fan.
In August of 2011, Emeli Sandé's debut album released and soared to the number one spot in the UK. Absolutely no surprise there. Emeli's music is beautifully soul-filled and passionate, impeccably wrapped with her sweet yet powerful vocals. With lyrics both relatable and validating, I'm in love with her music all around and estatic to share this.
At the time of my discovery, the release of Emeli Sandé's US debut album, "Our Version of Events" was set for June 2012. I'm not sure if that's the case anymore though I'm certain that it'll be released before 2012 is over. And if you like her just as much as I do, you can tide yourself over with a few of her singles now available on iTunes. The album "Our Version of Events" is also available for pre-order from her website.
If you haven't yet checked out Ms. Emeli, please do as I'm certain you won't be disappointed.
Here are a few of my favorite tracks:
My Kind of Love
Easier in Bed
