Marie White is already turning heads.
The young songwriter won the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition last year, battling her way towards a spot at the historic festival.
Wowing the crowds at Worthy Farm, the strength of her art saw Decca swoop to sign the rising force.
There’s a lot more to come, but new single ‘Sleepwalking’ is a beautifully frank introduction.
Raised on vintage soul, Marie adds her own spin, with her honest lyricism allowing her truth to shine.
‘Sleepwalking’ deals in truths, with the songwriter’s broken heart fueling a dramatic performance.
She comments: “You know those relationships where you both just sort of co-exist in each other’s company? When you’re together you’d rather be alone, but when you’re alone you start to feel lonely? You feel comfortable and safe, but still know it isn’t right? I wondered if a single phrase could encapsulate such a complex feeling and I thought ‘sleepwalking’ summed it up perfectly.”
We’ve nabbed this gorgeous live clip, with Marie (accompanied only by piano) performing in a garage.
Straight to the point, it’s dominated by her urgent vocal, so assured and so frank in its depiction of the demise of a relationship.
Tune in now.
