Born in Brixton and raised in Ladbroke Grove, Jelani Blackman has steadily emerged as one of London’s most rousing voices in recent times after what has been a testing past few year. With a Fire In The Booth recently under his belt and the views in the millions for his COLORS Session of new single ‘Hello’, it’s clear that people are ready to hear what Jelani has to say. This rise in stature is perhaps most sharply shown in his featuring on a track with Ghetts on Fraser T. Smith’s debut album 12 Questions, sitting amongst a who’s who of UK talent including Stormzy, Kano, Dave and Arlo Parks. Jelani can add those to an already impressive list of collaborators that spans from Brian Eno to Big Zuu and Wolf Alice to Burna Boy.
Expecting the release of a lot more exciting music from Jelani imminently.
