Since releasing her single Blackbird on Saffron the song was immediately picked up by BBC Music Introducing in the West and Worldwide FM and with support from local radio stations Ujima Radio 98fm and BCfm Radio.
Making waves across social media for its hard-hitting lyrics delivered through impassioned spoken word and wrapped up in the intricate harmonies. Blackbird, like the EP was written for black women to feel represented and empowered.
