One of the most unique and compelling natural talents in UK RnB/ Soul, Purple Ferdinand releases her first body of work since parting ways with Columbia Records last year – the ‘Rain or Shine’ EP.
With the tastemaker press hailing Purple one of the most naturally captivating artists coming out of the UK since Sade, first comparisons prove accurate: there is an inherent pedigree, heart and allure seeping out of this 7 track EP.
Purple’s playful yet seductive tones give a sophisticated, timeless sound that‘s been one sorely missed in the current wave of inner-city R&B. Swirling through emotions from dreams not being what they seem, her life and loves, the ‘Rain or Shine’ EP is a timely marker of the understated class of someone still so young in her career.
Following an acclaimed performance at the inaugural Afropunk festival in London last year, Purple continues to captivate her way into 2017. ‘Rain or Shine’ proves that she’s come back with the goods.
