Billie Black

19-year-old jazz singer/songwriter Billie Black from London released her second song “I Don’t Need Another Lover” produced by Imposters last week.

She began singing at an early age after hearing reggae, soul and disco records at her mom’s family parties. At age 13 miss Billie Black joined the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, starting a love affair with jazz that led all the way to a place on the Guildhall jazz degree (where she is now). At 14 Billie went to the Brit School, where she was exposed to a wide variety of music. It wasn’t till towards the end of her time there she started listening to James Blake, Jessie Ware, Sampha and Kwabs; acts who combine classic vocals with electronic production.

Billie now writes her own music and is working with producers Imposters & John Calvert on a sound that combines her roots in jazz with the bass and dance sounds of the moment. She’ll be releasing a first EP this summer and together with a band she put together, she’ll be giving her debut performance at Electrowerkz on July 15th. Make sure you follow Billie on Soundcloud and take a listen to some of her amazing music below!
