A.L. : Get Familiar

Having her voice spread in and around the UK since 2009, British singer/songwriter A.L. has been making a name for herself on the music scene. Tthe voice behind “Tell Me” with Funky House producers Footsteps, the singer’s distinctive voice and flare will be well recognised by club-goers from a few years ago. Having worked with the likes of Hardhouse Banton and more, A.L took a firm stand in the Soulful House & Funky House scene.

Not shy of keeping away from other genres of music, the now 24 year old female who hails from East London went on the experiment further with her songwriting and creativity, releasing a free collaboration mixtape entitled Who’s That Girl.

Having spent a lot of time featuring on other people’s music, including East London MC Maxsta, it was only right for the songstress to release some solo material to prove that she is more than capable of holding more than a chorus on her own. Happy to return the favour, the singer called upon female MC Lioness to feature on her first solo track “Better Me” released late last summer.

Heavily influenced by and sitting comfortably on any R&B/Soul track given, the singer pays respect to one of the greats, J.Dilla,covering Meek Mill’s “I’m A Boss” over the legendary producer’s “Timeless” instrumental, leading up to her latest project release, A.L. vs. J.Dilla: The LB EP (The Laid Back EP). Featuring 16 of J.Dilla’s infamous instrumentals (which some if not, most are already familiar with) combined with original written lyrics performed with soul – setting her apart from the rest.

Now looking ahead into 2012, the singer is working on some new material for the world to get their ears around and will surely be something to remember. With the current increasing buzz of what’s next to come out of the U.K in the next few years, A.L. should be a name fixed on the lips of many.
