Following on the heels of her successful collaboration with DJ Spen and Michele Chiavarini on the remix of her third single, “Elevation,” British soul diva S.E.L. (Soulful Emma-Louise) once again enlists the famed American DJ and Producer to record her new single, “Flowered Tears”
With her lyrical and powerful voice, S.E.L. portrays both fragility and strength as she urges listeners to “hold on for longer” and rise to victory over life’s struggles. Portraying hope, S.E.L’s positive message echoes like a breath of fresh air in the current climate.
The singer, who has pursued a career in music since she was five years old, has mastered not only vocal virtuosity, but also piano, violin, and arranging - all which help her select just the right blend of melody, harmony, and arrangement to showcase her sultry voice.
After graduating with a degree in music, S.E.L headed for the London soul scene, where she soon turned heads. Not only has she been a full-time member of UK Soul royalty collective, Soul II Soul, since 2005, championed by Grammy-award Winner Jazzie B; her rising popularity landed her gigs working with international stars, including Alicia Keys and Jocelyn Brown. S.E.L’s classical training has also given her an opportunity to stretch her wings as an arranger having collaborated with Duncan James to create vocal harmonies for his group, Blue.
S.E.L’s last single, “Elevation,” earned plaudits the world over and after a performance at the prestigious Margate Soul Festival last summer, Mi-Soul Radio added it to their playlist. The August 2016 edition of Soul, Jazz, and Funk saw music journalist Bill Buckley describe it as “particularly tasty...championed by a goodly selection of soul tastemakers”.
“Flowered Tears” sees S.E.L embark on the next chapter of her musical journey, and when the message matches the music so well, it creates magic. Released on April 21st 2017 with Remixes to follow, and find out more at: www.selsoul.com
