Prepare to witness the rise of a new-born star on the European music horizon! Often dubbed as "Switzerland's hottest new soulful export" and "the Swiss R&B queen", Faye B is already turning heads with her unique, strong voice, striking stage presence and natural charm. Her irresistible blend of radio-friendly, contemporary R&B, combining classic throwback elements with a mature Neo-Soul flavor, brings a much needed freshness to today's Urban music scene.
Making her mark with her smooth, infectious 2012 debut single "FINALLY" featuring UK rapper PYRELLI, Faye B rapidly created an international buzz on the independent R&B/Soul circuit and gained praise and accolades from leading, influential Urban music DJ's and tastemakers, resulting in worldwide airplay on countless major and specialist radio stations. In January 2013 the single shot to No. 3 on the UK SOUL CHART, No. 8 on the UK URBAN CLUB CHART and No. 20 on the NIGERIAN SOUL CHART.
Her second single "ANY OTHER WAY", an 80's influenced feel-good uptempo R&B banger, produced by platinum-selling U.S. super-producer MIKE CITY (Rihanna, Chris Brown, Usher, Brandy, etc.), was released in October 2013 and packaged as a stellar Old School-themed remix EP. Again, this earned Faye B a great amount of international airplay and was extremely well received by hundreds of Urban DJ's across the globe, scoring an average of 4.53 / 5.00 points on a Virdiko promotional feedback form. The Old School theme of the EP was channeled in the official music video, with ADIDAS ORIGINALS sponsoring the outfits and JAWN HA of the world famous MOS WANTED CREW (USA) choreographing the dance scenes.
In June 2014 Faye B teamed up with RAPPER BIG POOH, formerly of Hip Hop duo LITTLE BROTHER, and Boston R&B singer/songwriter LOUIE BELLO and released a smooth, new Neo Soul-flavored Summer remix of "ANY OTHER WAY", which was re-worked by Dutch producer THE PACKXSZ (Mya, Bridget Kelly, Glenn Lewis, Joyce Sims, etc.) and was also very well received on the independent R&B/Soul circuit.
At the beginning of September Faye B featured on a funky DJ Soulchild-produced club remix of U.S. R&B singer MISHON's smash hit single "LUCKIEST MAN", alongside Hip Hop legend KEITH MURRAY. The original version of the single was featured on the soundtrack to the KEVIN HART movie "ABOUT LAST NIGHT".
Faye B is currently in the studio with an impressive array of international hit producers and working on her long-awaited debut EP "THE JOURNEY, VOL.1". The well-received leading singles "USED TO LOVE ME" and "READY FOR GOODBYE", produced by UK producer/remixer NEVILLE THOMAS of 2B3 PRODUCTIONS (Beverley Knight, 112, D'Angelo, Erykah Badu, etc.), have both been very well-received by radio DJ's and critics.
"THE JOURNEY, VOL.1" will be available digitally and physically on 19th September 2016.
