Eska, Eska, Eska. Oh how I have been waiting for thee to drop your long-awaited album English Skies. Having become a fan of Ms. Mtungwazi through her work with Quite Sane ("Short Stories" anyone?), Ty, Zero7, Michael Olatuja, Bugz In The Attic, Matthew Herbert, and many others, what I really
want need is a solo album from one of London's best kept secrets. English Skies has been in the pipeline for some time now, and we are assured that it's virtually in the can, just going through the final production phase. I hope/wish/pray that this is the case, however in the mean time we'll just have to make do with this live performance of "Rock Of Ages," which, I believe, will be on the album. What makes Eska stand out is not only her uniquely beautiful, almost hypnotic vocals, but her all round creativity and musicianship. You can keep up to date with all things Eska related via her Twitter and the official English Skies website, and if you dig the video below check out some of her live performances on her SoundCloud page.
