ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 135 Sabrina Claudio

Following on from swathes of buzz and acclaim over the last 12 months, Miami-born and LA-based singer-songwriter Sabrina Claudio has now unveiled her debut EP, and it certainly bodes well for this young future star in the making.

Described as "minimal 90s-style R&Beats, spacious noir jazz, and Bossa Nova-induced rhythms", the seven-track release 'Confidently Lost' makes good use of the frontwoman's voice. With a multitude of interesting directions throughout, Sabrina's powerful vocals sit atop a range of influences and musical styles, delivering one of the most diverse and engaging debut releases of the year so far.

While it is clear that the 19-year-old is still searching for a sound to call her own, this initial display of prowess and emotive songwriting will definitely become the backbone of this singer's career in the years to come.
