Leanne Robinson is an emerging UK Pop & RnB artist who I came across a few years after seeing her live performance of ‘Untangle Me’ at The Sunday Show. Though she’s been up and coming for a few years now, she was officially introduced to the UK via her appearance on the xfactor 2012, where she made it all the way to the judges houses. One thing I would say is that hearing her live completely blew me out of the water. It’s hard to really grasp how powerful and talented an individual is when listening to them through a set of laptop/tv speakers. Her soulful influences of Aretha Franklin is strongly recognised through her possession of strong vocals that originated from her church, and as far I know, she’s the only UK female that can smash Beyonce’s version of ‘Listen’ to pieces…..ok not to pieces but she does a pretty damn good job of it.

On 5th January 2014, Leanne Robinson released her second EP – Exhibit B on iTunes with a price tag of £3.95. Our personal favourite is ‘Not Your Love’ (displayed below) so if you like this then you’ll like the 5 songs featured on her EP. They’re categorised in the RnB/Soul music genre and for an independent artist, we can’t fault her talent or effort in anyway.
Watch the official music video for ‘Not Your Love’ below. I can hear some musical influence, but can you? Let me know in your comments below.
