Singing from a very early age, Etta Smith's musical direction has been heavily influenced by everything from classic northern soul to 70's disco. Her love of Soul, R'n'B and Funk, paired with an interest in today's fresh music, forms an innovative and exciting sound from the Newcastle native.
Since her move to London, Etta has been collating more and more material, honing her sound and perfecting her status as a strong and passionate singer/songwriter. This was culminated in the release of her debut EP Discover Me in December 2011.
In 2012, Etta toured London with her band, performing at venues such as Kensington Roof Gardens, The Troubadour and Camden Proud. She also participated in a North East school tour, receiving an overwhelming response from both students and teachers.
Etta is writing and rehearsing her new material, in preparation for her brand new EP Vestry Sessions with Etta Smith, which is being recorded LIVE with her talented band. She is also preparing for her trip to San Francisco this February, where she will be working with the outstanding, Grammy award-winning producer, Narada Michael Walden.
