Judith Hill – “The Pepper Club”

The musical journey of this impressive Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter started when she wrote her first song aged 4. She went on to perform with legends such as Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. Her life as a backup singer has also been featured in the 2013 award-winning documentary film “20 Feet From Stardom”. In 2015 she released her Prince-produced debut album “Back In Time”.

The first taster of her upcoming “Golden Child” album, which is expected to drop later this year, is an exhilarating 70s-soaked funkalicious night out. A vibrant bass and spicy guitar plucks introduce the red-hot, bounteous brass and a toe-tappin’ virulent rhythm for her fierce, electrifying, powerhouse vocals to flirt with, making it an impeccable funkadelic feast with infectious danceability.

Mike Andersen – “There She Was”

At the age of 12 this Danish singer, songwriter, guitarist and bandleader chose listening to raw blues and Motown-like soul over the popular music his peers were favoring. He started his own blues quintet The Mike Andersen Band and has released 6 albums and 1 EP with his fusion of blues, hot-soul, funk and pop, blending all his influences, from B.B. King to Donny Hathaway, into a fresh new sound.

His latest single is sumptuous blue-eyed soul with a happy-go-lucky, summery feel. Airy guitar strums and a finger-snap rhythm set the scene for the cheery, orchestral horns to burst out in a salubrious bout of majestic musical energy. With his joyful, soul-soaked vocal abilities effortlessly dancing over the harmonic sunbeams, it’s a catchy jewel of spirited summertime soul.
