CHOON OF THE DAY: "BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE" - Lulu James
The emotive "Beautiful People" is the 1st track taken from Lulu James' upcoming EP. Since the release of "Closer", her phenomenal 2013 single, this London based soulful vocalist has been on my careful radar. "Beautiful People" offers a more dramatic take on the electronic soul Lulu James has been pioneering for months at this stage, calling it aptly "21st Century Soul". Lulu James already comes to my mind when I think of the greatest UK female soul singers of the past 2 decades, the likes of Caron Wheeler, Mica Paris, Carleen Anderson, Shara Nelson or more recently Roses Gabor an Jessie Ware. Here's hoping 2014 will also see the release of her first full length album.
