Future Soul-Pop Icon JESSICA RHODES will support British rapper, producer and global chart topper, LABRINTH this Saturday 25th June at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club as part of Wimbledon Live!
“Who You Are” the addictive debut single from the stunning singer and pianist Jessica Rhodes (out now) showcases her unique blend of soul and pop which has already seen her billed alongside the likes of Florence And The Machine, Maroon 5 and Iggy Azelia.
The effortlessly slick debut announces the arrival of Jessica Rhodes as a future sensation with the remarkably powerful and satisfyingly honest soul-pop anthem, “Who You Are” released 11th April.
Taken from Rhodes’ forthcoming EP released later this year, “Who You Are” was tracked at the legendary AIR Studios, London under the guidance of veteran producer Matt Butler (Phil Collins, Luther Vandross). Keen to keep Jessica’s music as unprocessed as possible, Butler highlight’s Rhodes’ impressive vocal range with raw live production offering a genuine alternative to today’s female pop artists.
“We wanted to give the listener that ‘Live Lounge’ experience, as if the band was playing right in front of you when you listen to the single…”
Combining modern pop influences such as Jess Glynne and Emeli Sande with classic artists such as Tracey Chapman and Fleetwood Mac, it’s no wonder that Rhodes has caught the attention of the music world with exclusive live sessions and multiple plays with BBC Introducing.
“Who You Are” [below] is a smooth and evocative number with a sour-cream voice and superb melody. Jessica is a masterful performer and consummate and skilfully adept instrumentalist.
