Manchester’s soulful chanteuse Josephine releases the new single, ‘What A Day’ on the 20th August 2012 through Ark Recordings.

The track precedes the release of her debut album,‘Portrait’, released on the 8th October 2012.

Born to a Liberian mother and Jamaican father who came to the UK before her birth, she’s enjoyed the advantages of a colourful West African culture as well as feeling intrinsically British.

“I always knew I’d be musical,” she admits. “In the house I’d hear lots of old records, such as Fela Kuti, and King Sunny Ade were played by my mum quite a lot. She’s got really great music from all over the world.”

Last year she shared stages with both Scottish success story Paolo Nutini and BBC Sound Of 2012 winner, Michael Kiwanuka.

‘What A Day’ gives a tantalizing glimpse of what to expect from Josephine’s debut album later this year.

Josephine is ONE to watch this year and next!
