London-born singer/songwriter Jasmine Thompson was first noticed at the age of just 13 for her YouTube videos covering various songs with her particularly smoky, eerie voice. After racking up millions of views of her videos of Taylor Swift and Naughty Boy covers, Thompson began receiving regular radio airplay on the BBC as well as gaining an expanding online fan base. Her cover of Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody" was used in an advertising campaign for the U.K. supermarket chain Sainsbury's and soon climbed the British charts. In September of 2013 she self-released her debut album, Bundle of Tantrums, and continued to upload new videos. She followed the album just a month later with an EP release titled Under the Willow Tree. In addition to releasing her own music, Thompson has collaborated with artists in the dance/EDM community, most notably with German DJ/producer Robin Schulz, who enlisted her to sing on his 2014 track "Sun Goes Down," which became an international dance hit. In early 2015, Thompson announced that she had signed with Atlantic Records and headed to the U.S. to collaborate with pop songsmiths like Jesse Shatkin and Emily Warren. Her first single for Atlantic, "Adore," arrived that spring with the Adore EP scheduled for release later that year. ~ Fred Thomas & Timothy Monger
