Katy B is certainly one to watch into 2010, Barely out of her teens the precociously talented chanteuse has already galvanised massive underground success with her Funky tracks ‘Tell Me’ and ‘As I’, both gained widespread radio support and the former went on to be signed to Ministry of Sound. Katy’s songs demonstrate her old soul; mature, insightful lyrics wrapped in the richly soulful texture of her voice, recalling early India (of Master’s At Work fame) and a young Jill Scott.
