A soul fuelled, head bobbing, sleek pixie cut mademoiselle is bringing back true classic messages and quality vocals into the UK music realm. Nottingham born, this youthful stunner has already taken London under her wing having opened concert for some people you might know, Omar and Emeli Sande? The singer songwriter even starred in the West End musical The Lion King.
With a rich, ripe tone, Wreh-Asha is a concentrated blend of 90’s soul, 60’s jazz and 70’s funk. With her Classic The EP, it is clear that her musical influences stem from what our parents would say “when music was really music”. Outside of musical influences such as James Brown, Mary J Blige and Sade, Wreh-Asha draws inspiration from daily life; a Christian too, Wreh-asha explains, she wants her sound to stay positive.
This modern day Nina Simone and Adele mash up expresses being confident in your craft is important. “Feeling overconfident isn’t necessarily a bad thing” and titled track Classic most certainly encourages that attitude. The EP is compact but full enough to get a sense of Wreh-Asha's appeal; her subjects are current and relatable allowing her to encompass an honest fan base.
Wreh-Asha's new single; out next month 'Crash' raises the bar once again, having its first airplay on BBC Radio Nottingham and has gained amazing responses from listeners.
The new single 'Crash' is out December 2013.
Classic The EP is currently available for download on iTunes
