S.E.L continues in the tradition of the greats of the British soul and trail-blazing UK black-music pioneers. Imagine a room with Sade, Caron Wheeler, Shara Nelson, Mica Paris, Beverley Knight, and Alice Russell, well this songbird Emma Louise would be in perfect company. S.E.L delivers her most expansive and heartfelt work to date with the release of the lead single ‘Melodic Harmony’ from her debut album ‘Loc’d In Consciousness. ‘Melodic Harmony’ delivers her trademark sounds – synthesising different musical strands creating an emotive slice of firefly funk.
Working mainly with respected Italian multi-instrumentalist and producer Michele Chiavarini, the A-List US House producer DJ Spen and Thomas McKay of the Night Crawlers, Emma’s song-writing prowess and lyrical arrangements shine bright. The album ‘Loc’d In Consciousness’ enlists Soul II Soul’s renowned violinist, Gill Morley for the phenomenal string arrangements. Also, cast are co-writers and featured artists Bryan Chambers, Tanya Lacey, Nathan Richards, Leon Nelson, and Victory Paul-Emeralds.
With her universal appeal and standout voice, S.E.L’s has had two previous singles charted at #No 2 in the UK Soul Charts and achieved “Track of the Week” status on BBC6 Music and MiSoul, such deserved high praise from quality tastemakers.
‘Loc’d In Consciousness’ is out now on physical CD and digital release.
