We've had the single of 'From The Fire' by Audrey Powne and now the long awaited album is out and it's red hot!

The title track sounds even more impressive than before (if that's possible, see review HERE) with deeper strings that gives it a be cinematic vibe and 'Feed The Fire' remixes (see HERE).

And this talent who sings (prepare yourselves for the track 'Sleep') and wrote the lyrics also plays the piano, Rhodes and organ on the album.

So why do fans like Gilles Peterson reference 'golden era' Dwele/Roy Hargrove/Alicia Keys - and lets add Alice Coltrane.  Well, not only can she sing with soul ('Souled Out' is amazing), she can play the trumpet too!  'Feed The Fire', 'From The Fire' and 'Interlude 1'; 'Interlude 2' is her piano 'scratch pad'.

Her talents have been previously used on sessions/backing band but this album is going to put her front of stage; and literally as there's a launch concert at London's Jazz Cafe (07.04.24) and if you've got the chance to see her live, do it - I don't think she'll be at such small venues in Camden Town for very long.

I'd heard people say, "wait 'till you hear the album", and now I have, I urge you all to hear it too - it's in excess of stunning!
