As a fierce humanitarian, Estelle
California has found music to be the perfect vehicle to express herself, looking to build bridges and promote positivity ahead of fuelling hate. By telling her story and standing up for the ones who have suffered throughout history, she hopes valuable lessons can be learned. Estelle
feels a close kinship with Nina Simone, though her inspirations come from black musicians around the world, as well as Classical and Argentinian music. Combing elements of pop, soul and jazz to imbue a truly international feel to her tracks, Estelle's sings with real soul and heart, her life experience coming through to express her passion.
Estelle's forthcoming EP, My Name is Freedom, sees her backed by legendary producer and drummer Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston; Mariah Carey; Lionel Richie); ace guitarist Vernon "Ice" Black
(Diana Ross, Anastacia; Babyface); James
Henry and veteran vocalists Larry Batiste, Cornell Carter and Tony Lindsay.
