Hailing from London, 23-year old Labrinth promises to drop some killer beats with his groundbreaking single “Earthquake”. The self-confessed musical geek has already achieved extraordinary success in the UK with “Pass Out” (a collaboration with Tinie Tempah) and solo releases “Let The Sun Shine” and “Last Time.”
16-year old Birdy’s cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” catapulted her onto the world’s stage. Captivating audiences with her piano-driven and soulful renditions of tunes from The xx, Phoenix and James Taylor, Birdy recently released her self-titled debut album (which you can download on iTunes here). Already having inspired THAT audition from Bella, she’ll be warmly welcomed into the studio on Tuesday to perform “Skinny Love”.
