Tune in at 7pm on 18 December as we continue to spotlight the best in London’s creative talent, with an evening of intimate performances from Ego Ella May, Tawiah and Bel Cobain as part of The Peninsulist Presents online series.
Bel Cobain creates an ocean of emotion with her poetic songwriting. She merges RnB, jazz and rap influences to create her unique and enchanting sounds on tracks like Introverted Stoner and Mint.
Tawiah has a well-earned reputation as a trailblazer in the world of alt-soul as one of the UKs finest singer / songwriters and as an exciting live performer.
Her debut album, ‘Starts Again’, released in 2019, is an exploration of her identity as a queer woman of colour, raised in a pentecostal family, and a determination to express her musicianship in all its raw glory, free of the constraints of major label wrangles from before.
Tawiah has also worked in collaboration with artists including Blood Orange, Kindness, Mark Ronson, Cee-Lo, Kano, Wiley, Ghostpoet, Zed Bias and Eric Lau. Most recently co-writing and performing The Cinematic Orchestra’s latest single Wait for Now.
Ego Ella May
South London raised Ego Ella May takes influences from equal measures of reflective moments of solitude, her interest in mental health and wellness, observations made while taking part in community-based charity initiatives and a desire to make the world a better, more honest place.
Her debut album, ‘Honey For Wounds’ is a soul-tingling blend of Jazz, R&B and Neo Soul vocal musicality. Incredibly honest self-penned, personal and observational lyrics are laced with tales of self-healing, protest, love and loss, global issues and more. Out now on UpperRoom Records, the record label arm of actor/producer/activist John Boyega’s company UpperRoom Entertainment.
