Eska’s Debut Album Announced as a 2015 Mercury Prize Album of the Year.

When Eska’s self-titled debut album was released in April 2015 on Naim Label, the BBC Radio 6Music tastemaker Gilles Peterson proclaimed Eska “the finest UK singer”, The Guardian dubbed her “enchanting… inventive” and The Independent called her “one of the most idiosyncratic and original talents”. The Zimbabwe-born, London-raised musician and songwriter took five years to make her album - “a mind-bending gem” (The Observer) - it was worth the wait.

A singer whose unique voice has adorned the albums of such original acts as Nitin Sawhney, Courtney Pine and Tony Allen, ESKA’s been in high demand in recent years. But her own music is something else; imagine the psyche soul of Minnie Riperton, unexpected, whimsical melodic twists of Kate Bush and ornate detail of folk legends Pentangle arranged in an intoxicating meld, and you’re only getting close. ESKA has been compared to Joni Mitchell, earned plaudits from influential radio DJs Lauren Laverne and Don Letts, performed live sessions for Radio X and Radio 3’s Late Junction, and had everyone from The Times to hip dance music site Boiler Room in a lather.

It's time to discover one of music's best kept secrets.
