Jess Glynne’s fame began with her feature vocals on tracks by Clean Bandit, Tinie Tempah and Route 94. Rather Be with Clean Bandit was certainly a memorable performance, allowing her to break firmly into the music scene with a resounding number one slot in the British music charts back in 2014.
Glynne’s three times platinum debut, I cry when I laugh, saw massive success in the UK and US. The fourteen track (20 tracks on the deluxe) record consists of six singles with features from Emeli Sandé, Clean Bandit and Route 94. It’s a demonstration of the powerful, soulful voice that we have come to expect from Glynne, even if it does leave the listener wanting to know a bit more of what the ‘Jess Glynne’ style actually is.
Whilst many artists are forced to try to dodge the dreaded second album curse, we doubt that it will be a problem for Glynn. The British singer-songwriter has roped in some of the biggest and best names in music for her second album, and less than a year since the release of the debut album, she is about to embark on an autumn arena tour of the UK following a plethora of appearances at some of the UK’s best festivals.
Waterfront will be reviewing what we anticipate to be an immensely immersive gig, showcasing the best of the relatively new singer-songwriting talent at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena. Tickets on sale this Friday, for the gig on the 1st December.
