Watch List: Lulu James - Brown Skin (Live)

Popular

21-year-old rising U.K. star Lulu James calls her music '21st Century soul', with its mix of r&b and electro-soul influences, and this potent combination saw her Black Butter released EP 'Be Safe' gain support from BBC1's Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and BBC1 Xtra's MistaJam, with a subsequent appearance earlier this year on Jools Holland to perform her follow up singles 'Sweetest Thing' and 'Closer'.  James supported Emeli Sande earlier in the year, and has just come off supporting Ellie Goulding on her U.K. tour, and, while in demand for the live festival circuit, she recently found the time to stop by the Red Bull Studios in London for a Gigwise.com 'Cover Stories' session to honor one of her major influences, India.Arie'I was a really big fan of her, she's really soulful, I grew up with her', giving a sensationally soulful performance of her own singing 'Brown Skin'.

 

 

Her latest single 'Sweetest Thing' is available on iTunes on Monday.
