Lorna Dea is already back in the studio writing new material with Multi Platinum Selling Writer and Producer Fred Cox; whose credits to date are Rag N Bone Man, Anne-Marie, Paloma Faith, and many many more. New Music is set for release in February 2019.
Dea is a well known BBC introducing artist from the East Midlands with a real passion for old Soul and Motown, her music has been described as having a “Contemporary mix of steady pop beats with subtle undertones of an organic Motown vibe.”
Lorna released her second EP 'Comfort Zone' in February 2018, which charted in the iTunes R&B/Soul Album Chart at NUMBER 5, amongst idols that Lorna has grown up listening to such as Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Al Green and Tina Turner (the list goes on).
The new EP was well received by BBC radio, and all three original tracks from the ‘Comfort Zone’ EP have been played by BBC Introducing Dean Jackson. “Real Rising Star is Lorna Dea, superb local artist on the cusp of great success.” - Dean Jackson from Beat on the Beeb for BBC introducing in the East Midlands. Dean Jackson also made two tracks from the EP Track of the Week for BBC Radio Leicester, where Lorna’s songs were played every day of the week. “She is just doing brilliantly, I think it’s Fabulous” - Ben Jackson BBC Radio Leicester

Lorna definitely has the bug for performing Live and is working hard to establish regular appearances in major cities across the Midlands, more recently performing at The JamHouse in Birmingham - “Wow what a vocal, you have a fantastic Voice” - Ben Drummond - Promoter for The JamHouse, Birmingham
This is not the first praise lorna has received for her music, Lorna’s debut EP “Little Spark” attracted the attention of National BBC Introducing, where Lorna’s music was played on all of 40 of the Local BBC Radio stations. “We love the sound that you make.” - Mark Forrest (The Mark Forrest Show) BBC Introducing.
Lorna has already received great press reviews in FATEA Magazine and the renowned international music blog “THE REVUE”. Here’s a taste of what they said, “You can hear the soul influences in this very new piece…. I am not normally a fan of the style, but I discovered this track to be strangely compelling. In fact I caught myself putting it on repeat”
Lorna has previously been featured on a world wide exclusive list of the Top 25 Artists to Watch for 2016 by ‘The Revue’. They described Lorna Dea as a “pop performer who brings a sometimes surprising raw edge to an otherwise divinely smooth vocal” and Little Spark was described as “a tiny moment of music to brighten up any mood on any day”
