Last night I saw Ava Leigh perform at the Soho Review in London. I love seeing new singers perform. Ava has a fabulous voice – think Amy Winehouse/Joss Stone + touch of reggae. She’s just a cool, hippy chic girl living in Brighton – which seems to suit her.
She declined to go to stage school and is working her way up the old fashion way – singing in jazz clubs and festivals.
She’s recorded her debut album with Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, as well as Future Cut, who produced Lily Allen’s Smile.
