At only 20 years of age West London girl Cleo Sol already has an impressive list of credits to her name. Still in her late teens she was asked to collaborate on a number of tracks by veteran underground producer Davinche, having attracted his attention with a few songs uploaded to her Myspace account. This partnership led to tracks with Tinie Tempah on "Tears", Davinche's "Hero" and "Riding For Love" alongside Bashy. Cleo also featured on a couple of funky House tunes and on "Give A Little Love", the official Orange Rockcorps anthem alongside Roll Deep, Wretch 32 and Aggro Santos. She recently performed at T4 On The Beach and LoveBox and will headline at industry night YoYo's September 15th.
Already earmarked as one to watch out for in 2011 by industry taste-makers and enjoying heavy DJ support with promo tracks "Love Bass" and "Call On Me" (selected by Twin B as 1Xtra's Best of British Track of the Week back in May), Cleo teamed up with fellow West Londoner and dancehall musician Gappy Ranks for her official first single, "High". The ska/pop fusion track has already been play-listed on Radio 1xtra and is enjoying early support from the likes of Choice FM and Kiss FM.
"High" is officially released, together with B-side "Call On Me", on September 18th.
With the right video, Cleo could well have her first Top 10 hit with this one. Check out a minute-long snippet of the song below:
