Fusing her breathtaking vocal, with soft percussive elements, ‘Shorny’ reflects the rawness Etta brings forth in her music. Accompanying the single is a romantic video that Etta pieced together herself, made up of recorded FaceTime calls that document the moment she first met her partner, with a series of additional clips showcasing the early stages of their relationship.
Last year she reached new heights after selling out her debut headline UK tour, going on to support Kojey Radical on his Can I Speak tour in November. Stepping it up a level in 2019, she is now gearing towards a 17-date tour around Europe & UK this March, including dates in Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Milan, Copenhagen and many more.
Featuring on SiR’s single ’Something New’ last year, from his acclaimed ‘November’ album, Ettaalso scored huge viral success with her cult hit ‘Surface’ featuring A2. Receiving a wealth of radio and blog support, the track soon birthed the #SurfaceChallenge, which included freestyles from thousands of participants, including Mahalia, Sinead Harnett, and Joel Baker.
Inspired by the likes of Jill Scott and Amy Winehouse, Etta’s powerful delivery has helped cement a strong reputation as one of the UK’s fastest-rising talents. With the singer/songwriter tipped by The Fader in their list of 10 UK R&B Artists ‘You Need To Know About’ , she has also been widely supported by Annie Mac, Julie Adenuga, Jamz Supernova, MistaJam, and DJ Target.
