Support 88Nine And This Artist:
''Py shows massive promise''
- Q Magazine
'Producers these days don’t last long before they start pining for a sultry songstress to add a little soul to their beats... but Py however is the vocalist going after them, adding a little more balance to the game.' Dazed & Confused
“Oozing elegance and class over creeping, precarious beats, Py is one to watch out for’’
‘Pretty spot on if you ask me’
– Boiler Room
If ‘Tripping On Wisdom’ is as adventurous as the taste in backdrops this young singer’s displayed so far, prepare for something that’s both addictive and a little outside of the proverbial box’
– Pinboard Blog
Of all the new acts to have emerged so far in 2012, Jade Pybus aka Py is definitely one of the most interesting, her astounding voice matched only by the calibre of producers, such as Breton, Lapalux, George Fitzgerald, Raffertie and Greenwood Sharps that she has been working with.
Ready to step into the spotlight Py is now releasing ‘Tripping On Wisdom’, a mixtape featuring her collaborations with the aforementioned names alongside Caspar Kedros who helped to mix the collection of tracks with Py.
‘Working with these amazing producers has allowed me to create everything in a varied mix of genre, covering songs that have always been important to me. I wanted this mixtape to be from a vocalists perspective, lead by the voice.” Explains Py.
“It’s a story of the memories and nostalgia of my past, feelings and situations I have dealt with, and that bittersweet feeling from leaving one place, letting go and moving into another time.”
The perfect snapshot of an artist at the start of their career, brimming with creativity and inspiration, ‘Tripping On Wisdom’ hails the arrival of a singular talent.
‘Tripping On Wisdom’ will be available to download for free via;
