Effie knew from a young age what career she wanted. Age just 11 she asked her parents if she could ‘go pro’ and signed up with the E Minor Choir. Within just a few years she was being mentored by Lemar, garnering praise from the MOBOs and Radio1 Xtra, but she knew something wasn’t quite right with the formula. Still a teenager, she was being shaped by a team rather than following her own creative convictions, so she walked way from the music world until she was ready to return on her own terms.
That moment has arrived. Now in her early twenties, Effie feels fully ready to make that leap she has always known was possible. Having spent the past 18 months developing her own material while working as a featured artist on releases for FOOR (Gravity / Everything You Need / So Good / Running Away / Connection), Dots Per Inch (Sparks and Flashes), Effie has been been enjoying finding her voice alongside some of the industry’s leading lights.
Having worked heavily with Ghetts, who invited Effie to join him for his 2014 tour, she featured as the vocalist on These Words, which is featured on his live album. Currently working with Ghetts and Rude Kid, writing and recording material for his forthcoming release. Her, a collaboration with O’D, was released earlier this year and saw Effie praised by TheFourOhFive for her ‘smooth and sultry vocals’.
While collaborations with Toyboy and Robin and Knoxa are still having their finishing touches added to them, Effie is ready to relaunch her solo career with self-penned single “Pressure”.
Boasting the soul of Kwabs, the innovation of FKA Twigs and the vocal dexterity of Jessie Ware, “Pressure” is an honest representation of Effie’s intentions as an artist. A fusion of r’n’b, soul and electro, “Pressure” manages to be simultaneously polished and raw. Written at a point of emotional catharsis, it is elegantly constructed and powerfully delivered.
Having taken to the festival circuit last summer for shows at Soundclash, Isle of Wight, Mutiny, Royal Ascot Tea Party and Common People Festival, Effie is excited to take her solo show on the road to showcase her new material later this year.

Young Pianist Amartya Paul Amazes With “Pulse Of The Heroes”
Straight from the world of talented young artists, Amartya Paul is back to blow your mind with his instrumental creation, “Pulse Of The Heroes.” Now, you might be wondering, what’s so special about this piece? Well, there’s a lot to unveil…
“Pulse Of The Heroes” is not your typical piano composition. It’s a contemporary classic masterpiece that draws inspiration from the fantastic world of superheroes and supervillains. And if that doesn’t pique your interest, wait until you see the animated video that accompanies it. Trust me, it’s a visual treat!
But the awesomeness can’t stop there. In fact, the orchestration of this brilliant piece is the brainchild of the incredibly talented Camden Boyle. So, you can expect nothing less than high-quality tones.
When he set out to compose “Pulse Of The Heroes,” he initially had a vision of a melody that was fast and exhilarating. It evolved into a piece that could easily fit into the realm of iconic composers like John Williams or Hans Zimmer. It’s epic!
Interestingly, despite his young age, Amartya Paul’s piano skills will leave you utterly surprised. The way he maneuvers those keys is really magical. Moreover, “Pulse Of The Heroes” sounds like it could be the instrumental theme for a blockbuster movie.
But what makes Amartya Paul’s music even more intriguing is his unique approach. He delivers melodies based on his imaginative stories, and each melody flawlessly complements the plot.
You’ll find yourself immersed in tales like “Princess Ava,” “Princess Whitney,” “Giant’s Revenge,” and “Giant’s Capture.” And guess what? There are more pieces to come in this exciting series. Keep an eye out for “King Herran,” which is set to drop, possibly at the end of October.
Behind the scenes, he has some incredible support. Kia Portafekas, a Grammy grant recipient, has been his composition teacher for years, nurturing his creative talent. On the other hand, Peter Cai works with Amartya at the studio to produce those initial piano sounds that set the stage for greatness.
And then there’s Bill Kilpatrick, who sometimes steps in to orchestrate these gems while ensuring that the piano sounds align perfectly with the whole concept.
Stay tuned for the next amazing releases below.
