EDITORS’ NOTES

As the daughter of Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey, Mabel has big shoes to fill. But her debut EP follows more the footsteps of Brandy and Aaliyah than Mom and Dad. Sultry, breathy, and beautifully fluid, Bedroom is a fresh take on '90s R&B with an Afrobeat touch. Kojo Funds guests on “Finders Keepers,” a straight-talking duet about hooking up without commitment. “Don't feel like you need to try and love me,” she sings, “'Cause I don't need a spiritual journey.”

About Mabel

Like the music of her mother and father -- Neneh Cherry and Cameron McVey -- Mabel McVey's first releases weren't easy to classify, but were rooted in R&B with a level of maturity beyond her age. Born in Spain and raised in London and Sweden, McVey showed a deep interest in music during early childhood and studied music production. Her parents didn't know that she was writing music until she was 16. Before she turned 20, she released her debut single, the independently released "Know Me Better" -- a moody, yearning piece of breakbeat soul. Signed to Polydor, she had her second single, "My Boy My Town," out by the end of 2015. Shortly after that, she was nominated in the BBC Sound of 2016 poll (won by Jack Garratt). In 2017, she delivered the mixtape Ivy to Roses, which included the single "Finders Keepers," featuring Kojo Funds. ~ Andy Kellman
