Every now and again you come across a singer who reaches into your soul, pulls on your heartstrings and plucks them like a finely-tuned instrument.

Step forward Nadine Shah, who does just that.

Over the past year, the Whitburn-born singer’s been winning bags of national acclaim – and it’s easy to see why.

This latest EP has power, passion and panache.

It’s worth listening to for her take on Cry Me a River, which is stunningly dark.

Original tracks Dreary Town and Bobby Heron also put up a good fight for the title of my favourite track.
