While Manchester is hardly lacking in big-lunged, soul-influenced female solo artists, you’ll struggle to find one who combines power and tenderness with the same efficacy as Bianca Alana.
Trading in the sort of affecting, syrup-free soul ballads which have propelled Jess Glynne to stardom, Bianca Alana’s solo work – as shown on stunning debut single O Love - is characterised by genuine vulnerability, winning candour and, of course, that show-stopping voice of hers. Life as a solo artist, suffice to say, suits her to a tee." David Sue, M.E.N: Made In Manchester.
Coming from a musical background and being the Daughter of The Fall’s Ex Manager, Ed Blaney has allowed Bianca to take inspiration from sounds surrounding her childhood such as Hacienda classics, decades of Punk Rock and 90s RnB. After chasing her dreams around Europe and America, Bianca returned to England in order to create an original and eclectic mix of Alternative Rock and RnB.
O Love; the 4 track EP, is a collaboration with Producers Alex James Brierley and David Riddlestone and the EP's title track has gained attention by BBC Introducing Manchester.
