“Growing up in the UK, Garage was always going to shape my melodic style.. It’s part of the heritage. It’s amazing to be hearing new music from MJ Cole, Artful Dodger, Wookie & even Craig David!”
We’ve known about RNB singer-songwriter Effie since she first landed on the scene top-lining for Ghetts & receiving support from 1Xtra & The MOBO’S. Since then, she’s switched labels & progressed her sound. The new EP ‘Could You Be‘ blends smooth & sultry half-time RNB with powerful mainstream crossover tracks. The blogging world has started to pay attention, with features on Notion, The 405 & Clash leading to support from Yasmin & Twin B on 1Xtra for the first single – ‘Pressure’.
As a special piece of content, Effie has shared with us a brand new acoustic cover of a UK Garage classic.. You’ll recognize this one almost straight away, as Effie pays homage to a scene & a culture that defined growing up in the UK through the 90’s & early 00’s.
