A singer from Bow who’s worked with Gary Barlow and Disney is releasing her debut single.

Magenta, a singer-songwriter who’s spent ten years as a session musician, has worked with jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, Disney, trance DJs Genix and Solarstone, and Gary Barlow on his West End musical GIRLS.

Circles will be her first solo single, with the folk-pop acoustic track taking inspiration from her idols Joni Mitchell and Carol King.

She said: “Making this record has been a long time coming and a real labour of love, but I’m very proud of the results.

“I don’t know what the future holds but I feel very positive and am very grateful to my friends and family for their support.”
