Meet the Newcomer to the UK’s R&B Scene

London-based singer-songwriter Symonne delivers soulful R&B narratives with a raw, confessional edge. Her musical journey began in 2023 with her debut single “You’re Mine,” a poignant reflection drawing inspiration from personal experiences of heartbreak and healing. Symonne’s lyrics serve as a captivating chronicle of life’s emotional complexities.

Growing up, Symonne found solace in the soulful sounds of artists like Mary J Blige, Beyoncé, and Erykah Badu, whose music resonated deeply with her. Raised in northwest London, she immersed herself in the rich tapestry of R&B legends, finding inspiration in their soul-stirring melodies. From childhood car rides filled with SWV anthems, to quiet moments with her grandfather’s nursery rhymes, music became Symonne’s sanctuary.

An introspective soul, Symonne spends much of her time in solitude, channeling her innermost thoughts into her music. Mornings, in particular, ignite her creative spark, as she delves into the depths of her emotions, letting her melodies unfold organically.
