Lulu James – electronic soul

Lulu James: a rising star. Love her videos Sweetest thing and Closer!

Lulu James was born at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. At the age of 6 her parents decided to move to South Shields (Newcastle). The 21 year old developed her love of singing through being in the church choir in Tanzania. Growing up in the UK, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson became her heroes and support in life.

In Newcastle Lulu met DomZilla and they decided to write together. Her music is fresh, and she calls it the 21st century soul at its best. The soul music is infused with electro/ dubstep beats which appeals to a much wider audience. Since last year, lulu has been working hard to launch her music career and it seems that this year its actually happening. The UK loves her, especially her live performances. Cannot wait till she comes to Paris. When I listen to her songs different artists, pop into my head: Grace Jones, India Arie and James Blake…a great mix!

Sweetest thing will be released on the 3rd of November.
