A new wave of UK artists have been trailblazing
the way for a modern twist on the retro genres, leaving fans guessing who the next big name on the scene could be. You want our bet,
it's London-based songwriter SK.
Born and raised in Luton, SK was brought up on her family's vinyl collection.
Immersed in soul music from a young age, she was raised on the sounds of Aretha Franklin and Donny Hathaway.
As she approached her teenage years, her tastes evolved towards the jazzier sounds of the musical spectrum.
She also developed an appreciation of R'n'B after suffering a heartbreak. All of this, soon became the foundation for her artistic journey as an adult.
Ahead of her first single launch, SK has spent the last few years perfecting her solo material while touring with her band, The Kings.
Her first solo excursion
was the well received single, Nostalgia
The new single When You Know
, very much continues where she left off, with a piece of instrumental soul that's rich in heritage and musical delivery.
"This is actually the prequel to Nostalgia. I'm one of those people who wears their heart on their fingertips, I met someone and I fell in love with them very quickly - we moved in together after seven days.
"It was the way he looked at me, he saw completely and accepted all of my insecurities and flaws and loved me anyway.
"When you meet someone like that and it's so good, it doesn't feel real.
"It's actually a conversation we had, I asked him what he'd say when people would ask him about us and everything happening so fast and he said "when you know, you know."
