When you're getting the spotlight from Nick Grimshaw (his ‘track of the week’ on BBC Radio 1 at the time) to Jamz Supernova (BBC1Xtra) to JazzFM's playlists you must have lots to offer.

And West London based Kyra certainly has from her singing and songwriting.  There's that soul and jazz mix going on Nina Simone/Amy Winehouse/Terri Walker/Minnie Riperton and many more.

She seems totally 'arrived' on this seven track EP; especially on 'Blossom Spring' and 'Sweet Mahongany' (yes, there's Minnie Ripperton going on) and as this project is backed by PRS Women Make Music Foundation, she has used as many females as she can on this release; even the string arrangements were composted by an all female orchestra - check 'Need More Time Pt.2'.

The collabs with Blue Lab Beats will get attention like the jazzy-jam 'Excellent' but there's going to be more growth here than with a whole series of Gardeners' World; just beautiful.
