Pop / Singer-Songwriter
18-year old Jasmine Thompson began uploading covers to YouTube when she was just 10 years old. Since then, her pure yet powerful vocals have garnered the attention of over 2.8 million YouTube subscribers and over 6.5 million monthly Spotify listeners. The numbers are impressive, but the British singer's music speaks volumes. While her acoustic covers of hit songs have garnered incredible success, her recent EP, Wonderland, has proved that she has a maturity beyond her years in both the quality of her music and lyrical content. The pop record, which features co-writers like Meghan Trainor and Julia Michaels, talks about the uncertainty of the teenage years while asserting that there is ultimately something blissful about not knowing. With emotion at the core of her music, each song speaks to a different feeling and allows listeners to connect with Thompson's own experience. Although the singer is quite young, her deep empathy allows her to write songs about emotionally mature topics that stem from her personal experience and the stories of others.
