Midweek Music – Delilah

British singer-songwriter Delilah‘s debut album From The Roots Up has very quickly become part of my regular music playing rotation. I got put onto her by a friend at Atlantic Records in London, when I was recently there. Born Paloma Ayana Stoecker, her influences range from Buena Vista Social Club and Nine Inch Nails to Chaka Khan, Portishead and Sade. Having started singing at an early age and signing with Atlantic at 17 (she is 22), she paid her dues working with drum & bass/dubstep duo Chase & Status as well as touring with one of my favourite artists right now, Maverick Sabre. Her music is melodic, at times melancholic, but always beautifully written and sung. Her album, which features her own writing, was released with the the song Go as the first single. It draws lyrics from Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody in a way that makes it familiar yet wonderfully different.

Shades of Grey is her latest single.
