This Sunday on the The Love Shaq, Shaq D will be joined by UK singer /songwriter Vonne, to talk about her music journey so far and select some of her favourite slow jams.
THIS SUNDAY 23.00 – 01.00
The 24 year old singer songwriter was born & raised in Sydenham, South East London. She grew up in the Church, listening to gospel music and leading Worship every other Sunday. Her love for music encouraged her to learn how to play the guitar and to study GCSE Music at School. This gave her more confidence in her songwriting & the skills to produce her own demos which she would perform at School assemblies, Church events & competitions.
Vonné went on to study a Vocal Degree at ACM in Guildford and after graduating, she worked as a Wedding Singer and Session Singer. By the age of 21 she had toured with Artists such as Emeli Sandé, Candi Staton, Belinda Carlisle, and has more recently toured with Mabel and Italian X Factor Winner Marco Mengoni singing songs in Italian.
In June 2017, after 2 years of writing and touring in between, Vonné birthed her first ever single “Closure” with a Music Video alongside. Her second single “Down” followed shortly after which has been supported by many underground stations like Reprezent, The Beat, Pulse88 and gained online Press from Earmilk, Apitate and more.
The UK Songstress then went onto release her Debut EP ‘Love Games” consisting of 5 tracks including “Closure” & “Down” in July 2018. The EP was inspired by her past relationships, finding her place as a young Women in the music industry & searching for the real meaning of Love.
