In The Spotlight

Loah – “Nothing”

The spirits of Haitian voodoo. Well, that’s one Loah, just not this one. This is Sallay Matu Garnett, a singer/songwriter of Sierra Leonean/Irish origin, who started classical violin training from an early age and adding piano as a teenager. After first collaborating with other artists and co-writing a song for the debut album of Hozier, she is now ready to dazzle as a solo-artist.

Her latest single is an alchemy of pop, soul and her phenomenally enchanting voice. Supported by a mere drum beat to start, her creamy, soulful vocals take center-stage, but it soon conjures up a glorious, upbeat pop chorus with a modern nu-disco feel and alluring orchestral violins adding a sense of opulence. It’s pure melodic magic, which will put you under her spell.

From her debut EP “This Heart” (2017):
