Jules Rendell @ 40 Sheen Lane Wine Bar and Grill. 8.30PM
British born and bred, Jules Rendell’s distinctive style is encapsulated by the term, ‘singer-soulwriter’. She’s the kind of girl who’ll put a smile on your face when you meet her in person or see her perform…. there’s an infectious joy to her person and hopefulness to her songs – none more so than in the new EP ‘The Lotusbloom’. This is her fourth EP and, by her own admission, her best work to date.
Though influenced by the funk and soul of Aretha Franklin, D’Angelo and Prince, Jules also has a soft spot for the more chilled, acoustic vibes of artists like John Mayer, and her music is a mixture of the two. Never short of a sing-along-able melody or imaginative piano riff, her genuine lyrics come from real stories and are always underpinned by soulful arrangements.
