Quiet Dawn The original track is beautiful and her voice is so lovely! One of my favorite singer and producer this year! Can't wait for the album! And of course the remix by Paul White is insane. Really proud to be a part of this great single and the First Word Records family! Favorite track: Hum (Single Version).

We both search for meaning, for a reason I am just another version of you Another shade, in another season. You move and I will shadow But in another time and space Reflection might be different But different paths line the face. We add another frequency to the hum. Like two strands of life Swaying to the beat outside Like two colours Changing with the mood around us. Adding to it's complexity Adding another frequency to the hum. It was your love Every ebb and flow from your love showed me To the hum.


Sarah Williams White is the latest signing to South London label First Word Records. Hailing from the 'Hilly Fields of Lewisham' Sarah is part of a new wave of artists from her corner of London that includes Mo Kolours, Henry Wu as well as her brother Paul White. A multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Sarah cites influences including Jamie Lidell, Erykah Badu and PJ Harvey as well as more contemporary acts such as Hiatus Kaiyote and Thundercat. Her sound mixes soulful, intricate vocals with subtle beats and layered harmonies.

This approach is writ large across 'Hum', the first single taken from her debut mini-LP 'Of The New World' due out later this year. Over a skittering beat Sarah showcases both her deft songwriting and breathtaking vocal abilities. Her deceptively intricate production is pulled together with a catchy hook and backed with layers of handclaps, percussion and vocal melodies.

On the flip Sarah's brother Paul (Golden Rules / One-Handed Music) creates a shimmering, eerie backdrop for Sarah's vocals, adding darker textures to stunning effect. It confirms Paul's status as one of the most interesting musical talents that the UK has produced over the last few years.
