Wonky Pop feature "Introducing... Edei"
"For you Girls Aloud fanatics out there, you may remember Emma Deigmann on their last tour. For the rest of us, we'll know her as Edei, the 21 year old beautiful singer with soul from the UK. She's been busy working on her debut album (set to be released sometime this fall - it's gonna be a great fall indeed!) and has released her first single, "In My Bed." The song is not as dance-driven as the current lady sensations on top of the charts, but this song is really driven by Edei's voice. It's nice to hear an artist that has Top 40 potential not using auto-tune or other computer generated techniques to manipulate their voice.
The same team that helped Joss Stone become a household name has been busy at work, helping Edei find her musical style. Edei is beautiful, has a solid voice and a pop-jazz-rhythm & blues blended style, that is currently lacking from Top 40. Her first single should appeal to listeners of all ages. It's a good blend of Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse and The Saturdays, if you removed the up-beat dance tempos and replaced it with a few horns and some funk. Mixing credits on her album include Tom Emlhirst, whose previous credits include Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" and Adele's "Chasing Pavements." Visit her site to download a free acoustic version of "In My Bed" and show your support by downloading the song on iTunes. Can't wait to hear what the rest of the album has to offer!"
