Jorja Smith, the English R&B singer/songwriter whose soulful, jazz-tinged cadence, heartfelt lyrics, and retro sound caught the attention of Drake and Kendrick Lamar, is our TFP Artist Monthly pick for best new musician.
“Jorja is a constant reminder that true artistry, writing and creativity will forever be alive and well. She is the future and present.”
On June 8, she released her debut full-length, Lost & Found — independently.
“People think I’m signed because of how successful I’ve been so far,” says Smith, pictured above wearing trousers and middie-top by Miaou. “But I’m not successful yet,” she’s quick to add. “I’ve got far to go. There’s always more to be done.”
