Today, British singer-songwriter Jess Glynne released her second album, Always In Between. If you don’t think you’ve heard of her, you probably have. Let us re-introduce you.
One part ’90s house queen, one part Florence and/or the Machine and one part Natasha Bedingfield in her prime – Jess Glynne started off as a marketing manager for a drinks company, and in a three short years, has turned from one of the most reliable featured vocalists (‘Rather Be’, ‘My Love’, ‘Not Letting Go’) into one of our most essential pop hitmakers (‘Hold My Hand’, ‘Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself’, ‘I’ll Be There’). With a voice that mixes the emotive husk of Sia with the sunny warmth of Annie Lennox, Glynne is a risen star that is sure to keep rising.
