You can never have too many intelligent female vocalists, and newcomer Jade Pybus is exactly that: a singer-songwriter who isn’t content with simply being a pretty pawn in the ruthless machinery of the music industry. It seems like producers these days don’t last long before they start pining for a sultry songstress to add a little soul to their beats... but Py however is the vocalist going after them, adding a little more balance to the game. This month she'll be releasing a mixtape of these impressive collaborations, working with the likes of Throwing Snow and Keysound producer Damu, whilst her forthcoming single ‘Lungs’ was produced by none other than the talented George Fitzgerald.
