Famed for her work with artists such as SBTRKT, Sampha and Joker, Jessie's own sensuous, sinuous soul has broken through to the mainstream, thanks to the one-two punch of her singles 'Running' and '110%'. A heady, intoxicating brew of R&B, hip hop, dance and pop.

Raised on seaside air and inspired by Vanguard jazz, LA born but Brighton residing Celeste was the winner of the BBC's Sound of 2020. From idolising the vocal prowess of Aretha Franklin, Minnie Riperton, Etta James, The Supremes, Marlena Shaw, and Tina Turner, Celeste learned to sing with heart and soon developed a love of instrumentalists such as Thelonious Monk, Alice Coltrane, and Sun-Ra, and the film scores of John Barry. All of this has come together to create Celeste’s unfeigned, honest, and heartfelt writing style.

Muller describes herself as a 'late bloomer', having only penned her first song when she was 19 years old. That track, Close, remains on her SoundCloud to this day, a symbol of where she has come from and a reminder of the raw emotion she puts into each of her relatable pop bangers. Putting that song online, alongside short Rihanna and Frank Ocean covers on Instagram, helped Mae get her first music industry attention. Fast forward through a whirlwind 18 month period and she had released two EPs (After Hours & Frankly) and formed the sound of a versatile young artist who speaks directly to and for her generation. Music for Mae began when growing-up in Kentish Town, North London, where it was always a part of her life but not necessarily a career path. 'The music was something I was always interested in and loved, but I didn't go to music school or anything. I did it for fun. I've always enjoyed creative writing but I only started writing 18 months ago', she recalls of her younger days.
