Having been inspired by Motown singers as well as 80s and 90s souls singers, Jade and Sapphire have started a musical collaboration that stands out. ‘Heartbeat’ is about the emotional rollercoaster that falling in love creates or as the girls put it: “Being head over heels about someone makes your heartbeat so bad, it needs adjusting.”
Jade and Sapphire are more than just two brilliant singers – the sisters know how to transform their ambition into an entrepreneurial spirit that allows their musical project to grow. Jade explains: “We sing, we rap, we dance and we write our own songs and choreograph our own moves. We have been doing it since we were little.” And as if that isn’t enough, So PreshUS have also launched their own record label Gemstone Records under which they will be releasing their single.
Like so many developing artists, So PreshUS know that making music requires dedication. The band has had days of going hungry in the past only so that they could afford to invest in their musical future. Their ambitions of becoming performers date back to their high school days: “We started asking head teachers if we could organise performances for school assemblies and if we could practice our dances in the classroom. This was around the time we began writing songs in the music block.”
The single ‘Heartbeat’ is out on 31st March 2016.
