Ione has released a gorgeous three-track EP ‘The Tide Is Changing’. Each song is a journey through the artist’s own personal experiences, and is sophisticated R&B perfection. Ione definitely has echoes of Beyonce in her sound, yet there is a uniqueness in her own vocal which sets her apart from the crowd of emerging talent. She is also a dab hand at accompanying her music with very chic visuals, as the lyric video for lead track ‘Loved By You’ demonstrates. ‘Run Away’ is a mellow electro-pop song with a powerful chorus and dark, sexy bass, featuring Pocket Sun. ‘The Tide Is Changing’ is a catchy track with elements of future bass and hip-hop production, and a classy R&B vocal.

Ione has recently lent her vocals to both of Foals 2019 albums, “Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost” parts 1 & 2, Foolish Loving Spaces by Blossoms and was the vocal coordinator and backing vocalist for the much anticipated sold-out shows at Hackney Empire with Carl Barat & Pete Doherty of The Libertines. At the start of 2020, before Covid hit, Ione was starring in Beautiful, The Carole King musical.
After gaining much experience in the industry Ione has decided to pour her energy into her own music. Last July, she released her divine single “Tell Me” which was backed with open arms by BBC Introducing and was played on Radio 1 as selected by Mike Skinner for his introducing selections.
Music clearly flows through Ione’s veins, and her voice is so effortless and powerful at the same time. Couple that with great songwriting and a flair for lyric-writing. This EP is very moreish and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this rising star.
