Here’s an artist I should’ve introduced months and months ago. Scottish-born singer and songwriter Emeli Sandé has been thrilling fans across the pond over the past year and is just a few weeks away from releasing her debut album, Our Version of Events, in the UK on Monday (February 13). The only reason I’ve avoided posting about the soulful songstress is because her music is unavailable here in the U.S. Good news though! Emeli has recently signed a new deal with Capitol Records and is set to release her debut stateside this summer. Responsible for major UK hits including Chipmunk‘s “Diamond Rings,” Professor Green‘s “Read All About It” and her very own “Heaven,” Emeli already is one of the year’s most impressive and exciting new acts. With her rich soulful voice and sophisticated songwriting, there is no reason she should not continue to succeed. Be sure to check her out if you haven’t already, Enjoy!
