Watch List: Midian - Bitter
Midian, influenced by artists that range from by Etta James, Mary J Blige and Stevie Wonder to The Fugees and Kanye West, is a 24-year-old singer from Virginia, with a strong, soulful voice that, while evocative of Adele and Joss Stone, is inimitably hers. She came to people's attention earlier this year when her song 'Bitter' featured in an episode of 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta', impressing many with her mature vocal and the lyrical sentiments of emotional regret at the loss of someone special. The audio track has to date reached over 250,000 views on her YouTube channel (below), and she has now, in conjunction with Vh1, released a live video of her performing the song. Having also modeled, Midian is bringing both style and substance to the music scene, and is currently working on an EP for release next year.
