This week's hottest brand new act is East London soul singer Hamzaa...
KEY TRACK: You
MANAGEMENT: Renowned Management
WHO: Say hello to 19-year-old soul singer Hamzaa, who’s fast rising as one of the most striking new voices of 2018.
WHAT: Straight up soul: acoustic guitars, intimate production and iron-strength vocals.
WHERE: Hackney, East London.
SHE LOOKS FAMILIAR…
Viewers of Later… With Jools Holland will recognise Hamzaa from last week’s show. The singer scooped a gig on one of music telly’s prime spots, which should give new single You a boost.
Yep, and Jools isn’t the only music biz type in Hamzaa’s corner. She shares a management company with Wretch 32 and recently began working with Primary Talent. Julie Adenuga at Beats 1 is a big fan, as is DJ Target, whose BBC Radio 1Xtra playlisted You.
Hamzaa has said an EP is imminent, but, for now, check out Stranded Love and You to discover the heart behind the hype.
