Meet the 25 year old from North London who’s taking today’s underground music scene by storm. Having already featured on tracks with Discolusure and Wiley, Sinead Harnett is set for a big career. Placed on MTV’s One’s To Watch list, she’s currently on tour with Mary J Blige aswell as having performed at Wireless last weekend. Her 2014 EP ‘N.O.W’ has more a chilled, R&B vibe and many now identify her as a modern day Aaliyah. On what to expect from her debut album Sinead said: “Hip hop, soul RnB are sounds that I love and so that sort of genres are what to expect on the album. It’s eclectic…I wouldn’t want an album that’s just one sort of mood so that’s the sort of sound that you’re gonna get from it.” You can catch Sinead performing at this summers V festival alongside MNEK and Nero.
