“May your love lift you up to a place you belong.”

“Going On” by Ella Eyre | As promised a couple of entries ago, a write-up on Ella Eyre, a 19-year-old with a very powerful voice. Well, not Regine-powerful, but then again, that’s not what we want here. After appearing as a featured artist on a Rudimental hit, she’s now readying her solo material – her Deeper EP comes out in a week’s time, roughly – just as she’s included in the BBC Sound of 2014 long list. And yes, wow, what a voice. Bluesy and husky and yet, it just soars. Ella’s another Brit School alumni – Adele and Amy Winehouse came from there – so, yes, you can see the thread coming, down to the similarly distinctive hairstyle. But pointing that out makes me sound cynical, yes? [NB]
