The British musician Cherise Adams-Burnett caused quite a stir in the R&B community in 2021 with her sensuous and silken neo-soul single “Remedy”. That’s down above all to her sometimes delicate, sometimes emphatic, but always highly emotional singing, in which she combines neo-soul elements with jazz influences − not unlike genre icons such as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. However, the singer-songwriter had already been performing in prestigious events such as the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall and at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival before then – not least thanks to her 2017 debut EP with the band Trope, which experimented with new arrangements of Stevie Wonder songs and which was released on the small but uncompromising label Jazz: Refreshed. Cherise recently contributed to the song “Hear Me” from the 2022 Tomorrow’s Warriors album I Am Warrior – a collection of tracks recorded live in The Jazz Café in Camden that brings together seasoned jazz musicians and newly discovered talents. In the same year, Cherise was also the recipient of the Parliamentary Jazz Award in the category Jazz Vocalist of the Year.
