This event has been and gone.

Jorja Smith has announced a string of UK tour dates in February 2018. The young startlet will play headline shows in Birmingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Coventry, Oxford, Cambridge, and London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

Earlier this month, Jorja Smith completed her US and Canadian tour, as well as unveiling her brand new single ‘On My Mind’, a collaborative track with UK producer Preditah, which many fans will recognise from her sold-out headline show at Brixton Electric, earlier this Summer. Premiered via i-D Magazine, the single is rife with an awareness and wisdom that far surpasses Jorja’s 20 years; however, there is also a more playful element to her usually introspective lyrical prowess.

Having enjoyed an incredibly positive 2016, which culminated in Jorja Smith releasing her debut EP, embarking on her first UK Headline Tour, and being tipped for success in 2017 by publications including The Fader, i-D Magazine, Complex, The Guardian, and more, the young starlet went on to be placed 4th in the BBC Sound of 2017 poll, and kicked off 2017 with her first US headline tour.

Starting 2017 with the majestic and poignant ‘Beautiful Little Fools’, which focused on the issues young women face in society, Jorja went on to share collaborations with Drake and Kali Uchis, is now ready to unleash more of her new material on the world.

Featuring

Jorja Smith appearing at this event

Young soulful singer/song writer, originally from Walsall, but now residing in London. Her influences range from Mos Def to Lauryn Hill and The Streets, while her soulful and jazzy vocal style has been compared to Amy Winehouse, Rihanna, Lauryn Hill and FKA Twigs. Jorja was working at Starbucks when she posted her first single, Blue Lights, onto SoundCloud in January 2016. It was a stirring listen, backed by her angelic, gripping vocals and a knack for poignant story telling. Within a week, it had racked up 100,000 plays, earning shout outs from Drake, Stormzy and Skrillex. She brewed her last coffee soon afterwards. Then in 2018, she won the Brit Critics' Choice Award.
