UPCOMING: Jessica Newry

avatars-000033283478-i35ft9-t500x500 (1)Anyone who reads PressPLAY knows we love a good throwback, especially any sort of summery soul / R&B that reminds us of hot months chasing the ice cream man (which, incidentally, was our only form of exercise). So here comes the rather shy and retiring Jessica Newry, who mainly likes to add cover versions to her SoundCloud, but occasionally throws up a demo so good you wonder why she won’t sit down and make an entire album. Birthday Song is the most recent of these, and it’s a laid-back, sun-drenched cut not too dissimilar to what KING are doing. Wholesome soul for all the family.
