Dionne Bromfield Grows Up

It’s amazing what difference a year and a half can make. Remember Dionne Bromfield? Dionne is Amy Winehouse’s god-daughter and first appeared in summer 2009 signing to Amy’s own Island Records imprint Lioness Records. Back then she was a really cute little girl with a great soul voice, a covers album and a future promising great things.

That future has come quickly. Now 15, she’s just released the video for ‘Yeah Right’ the first single from her 2nd album. Newly confident and beaming with pop star qualities, Dionne looks classy and sounds great in this sassy girl-power anthem. Sounding like a Ronson production, the song has got quite a Duffy feel to it and is good, but not jaw-droppingly so. It’s enough though to suddenly totally reposition Dionne as an artist with serious potential. ‘Yeah Right’ also sees the UK debut of adorable US rap youngster Diggy Simmons – the son of Run DMC – and the pair look super cute together, even if they are bitching at each other!

Jessica 6 – White Horse

Scattering icy disco dust all over the place, ‘White Horse’ is the first single release from Jessica 6‘s debut album ‘See The Light’.

Led by vocalist Nomi Ruiz, the band are all ex members of Hercules & Love Affair and were given a helping hand by Anthony Hegarty when he tipped them for future success in the Guardian last year. It’s very Horse Meat Disco (making me want to go tonight!) and happily slots into the whole nu-disco vibe with a large helping of early 90s house vibes.
