One to watch: Rainy Milo, singer, 17

 

Is this the new Neneh Cherry? Gilles Peterson snapped up her soulful pop song “'Bout You” which she had posted online for his compilation CD.

Raised by a Guyanese mum and British dad in south-east London, she says, “my music is some kind of new age or hybrid indie R&B”. Her new single, “Deal Me Briefly” is out next month. “Performing at festivals for the first time this summer and seeing the audience sing along is unbelievable,” she says. Next stop is Lovebox on 20 July.
