Biography

Connie Constance is an English singer and songwriter whose output doesn't adhere to one genre and has the disparate comparisons -- to the likes of Lily Allen, King Krule, and Hiatus Kaiyote -- to prove it. She released her early 2015-2016 recordings on Black Acre, a label that enabled her to develop her hybrid of contemporary indie pop and soul-rooted alternative R&B, and since then has recorded for the Universal subsidiary AMF, where she made her 2019 full-length debut with English Rose. A native of Watford, Hertfordshire, Constance Power studied ballet and musical theater before she concentrated on music. Although she absorbed a great variety of music as a youngster and during her teen years was drawn most to indie bands ranging from the Stone Roses to Arctic Monkeys, she felt predestined as a woman of color to make commercial R&B. Unfulfilled after writing tens of songs conforming to a specific genre, Power resolved to make music that more accurately reflected herself and defied simple classification. She found a home at Black Acre (slogan: "Genre? There is no genre"), the outlet for the three-song In the Grass EP and the single "Answer," both of which were recorded with label mate Blue Daisy and released in 2015. Power then struck a deal with Universal boutique division AMF. During the next two years, she took small steps toward her first album with an array of singles epitomized by "Let Go," a collaboration with Ben Baptie and Alfa Mist. The ballad was later among the highlights of English Rose, Power's full-length debut. The March 2019 release included additional input from the likes of Jim Abbiss, Luke Gomm, and Dave Okumu, and led with the title track, a Jam cover. ~ Andy Kellman
