debut EP “In The Grass” released 25th September 2015 on Black Acre
produced by Blue Daisy
premiered on The Fader here
“In The Grass” is the first release from 20-year-old North/West London born artist Connie Constance.
Connie danced from a young age, having left school at 16, she moved to Hoxton where she began working professionally as a dancer, further opening her mind and soul to music through movement.
In 2015 a friend introduced Connie to UK musician Blue Daisy, their friendship was instant and Blue swiftly became her producer and mentor. Together they set about carving a uniquely tripped-out sound. Wild dreams punctuated by stark reality.
Speaking of her collaboration with Kwesi Darko AKA Blue Daisy Connie says;“Imagine your uncle is god and he only let’s the people who enter his heaven know who he really is. (His heaven being a dark and cave like studio filled with stories of the utmost enjoyment of solitude). That’s what working with Blue is like.”
’Stars’ enjoy here:
On her debut release Connie’s voice cracks and creaks with charm and emotion, her raw melodies dance across the deep waters of otherworldly soundscapes and jazz-inspired atmospheres. Her trips to the other-side are best illustrated on the magical “Stars” where a twilight visit to the park leads to tales of capturing shooting stars to create Connie’s own universe in a jar.
At just 20 years of age, Connie’s aura surpasses the time she’s been on this planet. She wanted to create music for her generation that breathes escapism from the cuts and bruises of young British life, penning lyrics on buses and trains. Her poetic words capture snapshots of modern living awash with shades of Erykah Badu. Growing up Connie listened to a lot of London born and bred artists like The Jam, The Libertines and Amy Winehouse, and you can hear echoes of their sound in her rich writing world.
Plug into London’s new soul star as she creates her own universe one musical bar at a time.
