Sound of '17: Poppy Ajudha
SOUND OF '17: POPPY AJUDHA
Poppy Ajudha is a name you better get used to. The singer-songwriter has a voice bursting with soul, perfect for bringing in the summer feel. Check out the perfectly smooth 'Peace of Mind' from last year.
We had the good fortune of catching her live at the close of last year with SumoChief - South London's answer to The Headhunters - as her backing band and let us tell you, it was a vibe. Poppy has also collaborated with the band on garage beat ‘Running Away’, as well as recording with neo-soul / hip-hop crossovers, OthaSoul. Last weekend Poppy played at the Worldwide Awards after party - have a listen to her pre-show appearance alongside Will LV on Worldwide FM.
Poppy’s vocals and songwriting talents come in the purest of forms - an impressive amalgamation of influences ranging from jazz and neo-soul to garage and house. Her soulful inflections are something we are very much looking forward to hearing more of in 2017.
