With three critical acclaimed EPs, a UK top 20 single with Lethal Bizzle, a successful collaboration with Wiley plus millions of views and streams already under her belt, British singer, songwriter and soul songstress Cherri V is a revered musician in her own right and is widely regarded as one of Britain’s best pure vocal talents.
Although Cherri has remained an independent artist, she has cultivated a steady following whilst gaining recognition from the likes of The Telegraph, Yahoo Music, BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, MTV Base, MOBO Awards and BET, all singing her praises.
In what has been an eventful career so far, Cherri V has shared the stage and worked with some of her musical idols, including touring with Eric Benet, who she grew up listening to, opening for Brandy, Floetry and Musiq Soul Child in London, and performing with Teedra Moses in Europe. On top of that, Cherri V has also been embraced by UK veterans such as Jessie J, Donae’o, Terri Walker, and Kim Mazelle, to mention a few.
The vibrato queen has finally blessed us with her most intimate E.P so far. I feel like Brown Eyed Soul is a re-introduction to Cherri Voncelle for those that have been following her music for years and also a fresh introduction for those that are not familiar with Cherri’s previous music.
I love the upbeat sounds from the various producers such as Beat Freakz, Hannah V and features from Roxxxvn, Sincerely Wilson to create just good quality music. This E.P doesnt feel like its boxed into labels of genres its just vibes. ‘Situationships’feat Sincerely Wilson is one of my favourites because it’s so relatable for everybody, its full of mood and melodies. My personal favourite is ‘Leave Me Be’because at the time when I heard it that’s exactly how I felt, I was on going to Ibiza so stressed. Someone was actually “trying my patience.” I just wanted to left alone. On the other hand I really like melody and the bouncy beat of ‘Runaway.’
There is just only 8 tracks filled with meaningful content.
BROWN EYED SOUL 1.0 OUT NOW!!
Also Cherri has her 1st headline show coming up 29th May @ The Islington.
Performing and sharing the reasons behind her songs is also an absolute moment for her, and what continues to drive her. Getting feedback that her music has had an emotional effect and connection with listeners, is what encourages Cherri V to keep writing with her heart on her sleeve.
