Pixie

Isn’t Pixie Lott a brilliant pop star name? Coming out of Mercury Records in 2009, Pixie is a 17 year old singer songwriter who was plucked from stage school and sent to American to make amazing soulful pop with the likes of Darkchild and Babyface. Is this a formula for an instant diva?

Pixie’s songs have an instant American hit quality to them, with the Ryan Tedder-eque ‘Without You’ a reminder of something like Jo-Jo’s brilliant ‘Leave Get Out’. The soulful ‘Mama Do’ sounds like it was originally destined for Mutya (are Mercury re-using a song perhaps?), ‘Boys and Girls’ is super cute and ‘The Fall’ showing off a less annoying version of Natasha Bedingfield. 

Interesting to keep an eye on, there are big bucks behind this project and you’ll no doubt be hearing her all over the radio come summer. File next to Leona rather than Amy.
