15 year old Londoner DIONNE BROMFIELD debuted in 2009 with her album ‘Introducing…’. Since then she’s been busy working on a second set for her mentor/godmother AMY WINEHOUSE’S label – Lioness Records. The new album is called ‘Good For The Soul’ and is markedly different to the debut. Where that was a sweet collection of covers of popular soul songs, the newie features all new soul-flavoured material.
To make the new album DIONNE has collaborated with BLUEY MAUNICK, TOBY GADD (who’s worked with BEYONCE and RHIANNA), and STEVE BOOKER (DUFFY collaborator). Heralding the new album is the single ‘Yeah Right’ which features a guest rap from DIGGY SIMMONS. Maybe it’s a coincidence that there’s a feel of AMY W to the song, which also come in a no-rap version and a special, punchier “Soundbwoy Remix”.
Of the new album Ms. BROMFIELD says, “To be honest, it couldn’t feel further away from the first one, which I love and I loved making. But this is the next level and it had to be”.
