From the first note on this stunning EP, Louise’s has launched herself into the top tier of the great female Britsh soul singers. Her jazzy, bluesy warm voice is an instant aphrodisiac to your ears and soul, ‘I Have Never’ is a perfect opening for what feels more like a mini album than an EP. ‘Please Don’t’ switches the music style up with Eastern flourishes where Louise slides her voice from dreamy to rhythmic, between chorus and verse with wondrous dexterity . ‘Dream’ goes onto highlight the song writing skills of this amazing talent, pulling us in to her beautiful world. ‘It’s True’ is an emotional ride twisting between real RnB, jazz soul chords, snippets of a down temp 80s baseline then pulled back with floating guitars – a mastery of music production. ‘Trust’ burts opens with a harder real bass and snare sound, Louise then drops into the track with a rawer heart wrenching vocal than on the previous songs. Its as if she is playing with us now, with each tack getting stronger and stronger, as she dips in to her vocal bag of tricks and pulls out another surprise. The EP draws to a close with bonus track ‘Family Tree’, inspired by Louise’s Grandma and played by Radio 2’s Clare Balding to celebrate National Grandparents Day.  Currently one of the most in-demand openers on the UK Live circuit, performing at the Glastonbury Festival on the BBC Introducing stage, and at legendary venues such as Ronnie Scotts, the Jazz Cafe & the London Jazz Festival. An incredible voice, great songs, brilliant productions, this EP will shine a bright light on Louise Golbey for the world to see.
