Katy B releases debut album - On A Mission

Katy B is the hot new female singer from the U.K. Just 21 years old, her debut album 'On A Mission' was released in the U.S. this past Tuesday, and has been met with praise from the likes of Billboard, Fader, The NY Times and Pitchfork. In the U.K. the album has already earned her top 10 singles and a Mercury Prize nomination.

The album features 12 songs, and includes production from Geeneus, Benga, Zinc and Benny ill. It's a beautiful fusion of underground electronic beats with Katy's lyrics. The album is full of soul, and Katy says that Jill Scott is one of her musical influences. Katy's live show has evolved from a live PA to fronting a full 10-piece band that recently supported John Legend and The Roots.
