Hailed as the “New Queen of Hip-Hop Soul”, Nottingham native Harleighblu possesses a truly irresistible classic soul voice with a distinctive edge. Her drive and passion for creative exploration has propelled her through the local scene to develop into one of the UK’s most promising young artists…
She describes her music as Hip Hop RnB with raw Soul and a bit of Electronic…Old-School Future!
Harlieghblu has mastered the knack of writing songs that sound decades old, brought bang up to date with a modern, almost Hip-Hop twist. The tracks are packed with jazzy grooves and slurred vocals, smokey sweet in their delivery which – if you close your eyes – could fool you into believing you’re listening to a contemporary of Billie & Nina.
Harleigblu’s frank, self-possessed voice pulls no punches and makes no apologies. Combining a classic yet truly distinctive soul vibe with a love of bass and eclectic future beats, each new release from Harleighblu is a revelation.
