HelloBeautiful.com’s “Base Level” column features the hottest new artists we’re buzzing about. Before they make it to the summit of superstardom, we spot them at base level–the beginning of their hopeful journey to the top.
The UK has managed to put out some of the best talent we’ve seen in a long time over in the States. From Amy Winehouse to Adele, the soul that’s bouncing through the UK can be heard in the torture of their brokenhearted tunes. One of the newest artists to join in the ranks of UK’s blossoming soul is Harleighblu. Yes, that is her real name. With a voice that sounds like a hybrid of Jill Scott and Amy Winehouse, Harleighblu is a welcomed surprise.
The 21-year-old soul singer is making waves in Europe and those waves have made their way stateside. With her latest single, “Play Me” off her debut album, Forget Me Not sure to stun the ears of the pickiest of listeners, Harleighblu is a breath of fresh and funky air. For now, we can download and listen to her tunes online, but by October 15th, Forget Me Not will be ready for your satisfied purchase.
