Combining a classic yet truly distinctive soul voice with a love of bass and eclectic future beats, each new release from Harleighblu is a revelation. Harleighblu has picked up over 50 plays at BBC 1Xtra alone and more than 300.000 YouTube clicks.
Nottingham native Harleighblu has been involved in music from a very young age, her drive and passion for creative exploration propelling her through the local scene to develop into one of the UK’s most promising young artists. Since announcing herself with the raw, beat-heavy soul of her debut LP 'Forget Me Not', she has been in national and international demand.
Taking the next natural stylistic step, in 2015 Harleighblu has been exploring a cutting-edge electronic spin on her signature sound, the "Futurespective" EP series unveils a sharp, forward-thinking style of soulful pop music dusted with grit and glitter in equal measure.
Harleighblu has always pushed forwards. She started songwriting aged just seven at a community recording studio, began performing with impromptu shows during school break times, and used the winnings from local talent competitions to kit herself out with musical equipment. Having been working with producers from the age of 12, the next major development came when Harleighblu was introduced to the Grammy nominated Musical Youth, not only giving her the chance to provide backing vocals for the reunited band, but also the launchpad to put together her own live band and start performing the local circuit.
