Soul, Jazz and Blues are in the middle of a serious renaissance in the UK thanks to a number of incredible talents, paving the way for the genre to reform.
One you might not have heard of (yet) is Luton songwriter SK - Brought up on the sounds of Aretha Franklin and Donny Hathaway, SK spent her early years developing a keen ear for Jazz and Soul, before trying her hand at performing. Fast forward to 2019, and the young artist has shared two releases and picked up support from the likes of Complex UK, Earmilk and Atwood Magazine. The new single When You Know details the process of falling in love, to a lush instrumental backdrop with Rhodes keys at the forefront of the piece. On the new single, she states:
This is actually the prequel to Nostalgia. I’m one of those people who wear their heart on their fingertips, I met someone and I fell in love with them very quickly - we moved in together after 7 days. It was the way he looked at me, he saw completely and accepted all of my insecurities and flaws and loved me anyway. When you meet someone like that and it’s so good, it doesn’t feel real. It’s actually a conversation we had, I asked him what he’d say when people would ask him about us and everything happening so fast and he said: “when you know, you know”.
