The debut single from LIPA student Helena Johnson, ‘Take Me Home Tonight’, is a long time coming. Having been singing since the age of 6, Johnson is the perfect blend of soul and jazz. Complete with a ten-piece band, ‘The Horn Supremacy‘, she has recently wowed audiences at local events such as Fiesta Bombarda and The Neighbourhood BBQ and this track proves why. Her sweet lyrics and tinkling of the ivories remind me of the great Norah Jones, and this track is particularly great to sing along to.
‘Take Me Home Tonight’ will be officially available for purchase on 23rd March but if you just can’t wait that long then be sure to check out her Facebook page below for live performances and cover versions.
