New Discovery 8: Kim Mayes


Kim Mayes is a confident 18 year old singer/songwriter from Worcestershire, England. Her latest single, “Private” captured The Hackskeptic’s attention recently because it has an interesting mix of pop/reggae and dancehall. She sounds like Corinne Bailey Rae, which isn’t a bad thing, and cites Lana Del Rey and Amy Winehouse as influences. Let’s hope her following grows from private to massively public in 2017, and a live show in my hometown (Tucson, AZ) would be something exciting to look forward to.

  1. Not really digging it too much, but I did think Amy Winehouse (who I liked a lot) when I heard it. I dare say she’s one to release something special further down the line…
