“Smiles as of the morning steal, when altogether all seems sounds,
sweet soul – living in your eyes”
SWEET SOUL EP
Creative minds dream up new futures
French-born vocalist Eka June’s debut EP ‘Sweet Soul’ has been two years in the making, and well worth the wait! Warm, dreamy, and laid-back, Jazz influences combine with hip-hop grooves to create music that feels vital, fresh, and original.
Plugged into the contemporary London music circuit, the music is as much inspired by the world of Jazz Re:freshed as it is by the Jazz and Hip-Hop masters.
Sometimes June’s lyrics will describe real situations and she would write to reflect on them and find outcomes. On other tracks it would be with more be subtle messages hidden behind metaphorical lines which allow for poetic imagery.
Eka June delivers soulful melodies, infused with a melancholy nonchalance, in which she explores the closing of emotional chapters within her life.
With a vocal style that draws as much upon Betty Carter and Erykah Badu as it does upon Amy Winehouse, this is a deep musical statement from an arresting new face on the UK music scene.
The Sweet Soul EP is ultimately a positive and powerful statement, showing what we can achieve by taking control of the direction of our lives.
The listeners find themselves immersed in the relatable ups and downs of challenging experiences, and the eventual need for us all to move on. Eka-J is an artist going places!
