Hailing from Hendon in North-West London, Estée Blu first picked up the microphone at the tender age of six, as a member of the children's Gospel Choir at her church in Kilburn. Her musical vocabulary includes Jazz, Neo-Soul and RnB as a child of the nineties. Estée Blu's value system and lyrics, champion authenticity and imagination through Rhythm and Blues. In August 2015 she was chosen by Sennheiser UK as the winner of 'Westfield Presents Artist of the Month', with a performance streamed live on KISS FM. Now a proud Roundhouse Resident Artist, the London Singer-Songwriter Estée Blu is amongst the new wave of indie British Soul singers, holding her own weight and bringing her own style to Contemporary RnB.
On 3 November 2017, Estée Blu presented her debut single 'All'. The Singer-songwriter teamed up with Berlin producer El Vincento and Anish Bhatt (MTA Records) to create a nostalgic sound that embraces her Jazz, Neo-soul and R&B influences. Delivered with sultry jazz vocals as she harmoniously recalls a former love affair. Her lyrics tie seamlessly with the poignant composition, with enough bass and feel good groove to leave you wanting more.
