Brit Sensation Emeli Sandé is Artist of the Week

Slacker's Artist of the Week

Emeli Sandé is a 25 year old British/Scottish artist that is poised to make a major impression in the US this year and is spotlighted as our new artist of the week.

After dropping out of medical school in her 4th year, she went on to become one of the biggest artists in the UK.

Since its release in February, her debut album, ‘Our Version Of Events’, went on to become the UK’s biggest selling debut album of 2012, winning Emeli the coveted BRITs Critics’ Choice Award as well as the Best British Female and Best British Album of the Year at the 2013 Brit Awards.

She’s now set her sights on the US. After securing the coveted support act spot on Coldplay’s US tour, Coca-Cola’s Olympic Torch Relay City Celebrations, and public support from the likes of Bono and Elton John – we doubt it will take long for the US to catch on to this powerhouse.

Take a look at her recent performance on Ellen this past month:

 

On Slacker’s Artist of the Week station, you will hear Emeli Sandé as well as other collaborators, influences, and contemporaries. Just think – in a few months you’ll be able to say you heard her here first.
