Emeli Sande

Our Version of Events 2012 via Capitol
a note about this track

While still a teenager, Emeli Sande got her first big break as a singer and songwriter as she was named a contest winner for a BBC songwriter contest and record-deal offers soon started pouring in. But instead of signing to a label, Sande put her music career on hold and embarked on a six-year degree in medicine. Studying at Glasgow University, she specialized in clinical neuroscience.

a note about this track

Where dirty blues and beats collide: Meet ZZ Ward, a singer/songwriter whose artistry spins on a luminous axis of voice and soul. Raised in Roseburg, Oregon, ZZ learned from her father who wrote songs and played harmonica in blues bands, but it was old school masters like Big Mama Thornton, Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters from her parent’s vinyl collection that first intrigued ZZ. “It was the authenticity,” she recalls, “the soulfulness.”
