Support Women Artists Sunday: Emeli Sandé

Emeli Sandé

Gracefully flaunting her rich voice and penchant for sophisticated melody on her debut album, Our Version of Events, Emeli Sandé is instantly revealed as an uncompromising creative force. A fervent singer-songwriter since the age of 10, the now 24-year-old Scottish recording artist got her first big break while still a teenager. But instead of signing to a label, she put her music career on hold and embarked on a six-year degree in medicine. It wasn’t until 2010, with just a year to go, that Sandé decided to take time out from her studies and dedicate herself to her music full-time. After writing a slew of songs for British acts like Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle, Tinie Tempah, and Cheryl Cole (and being noted as Simon Cowell’s “favourite songwriter at the minute,”) Sandé set to work on her own album. The success was tangible; not only did she walk away with two number one singles in the UK, but the Our Version of Events also hit number one on the UK Albums Chart. Bearing a sharp and shining retro-futurist feel, the 14-track LP is rife with raw emotion–a phenomenon that Sandé credits to a dogged commitment to acting on instinct. It’s these raw qualities to earned her the coveted BRIT Critics Choice Award for 2012 and got her recruited to write with Alicia Keys.
