HER POWEREFUL VOICE AND SONGS ABOUT JILTED LOVE HAVE MADE THE LONDON-BORN SINGER A MASSIVE STAR AND A FAVOURITE AMONG GAY MEN

Paloma Faith

{ BIG GAY FOLLOWING }

OUTSPOKEN AND GENUINELY OFFBEAT, 36-year-old singer Paloma Faith manages to be both a massive musical star and a humble artist, who’s refreshingly free of bullshit. She paved the way for singers such as Adele and Amy Winehouse, was covering herself in fake blood on stage long before Gaga donned a meat dress, and spent years preforming burlesque and cabaret before hitting the big time.

Throughout her career she’s become a master at dissecting matters of the heart on hits such as New York, Only Love Can Hurt Like This and Picking Up The Pieces. And with her first three albums all going doubleplatinum (the only British female to do so besides Adele), her formula of soulful pop songs about jilted love, delivered in that powerful voice, has proven irresistible.

Paloma has also starred in films such as St. Trinians and The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus and was a judge on The Voice, but for years she admits to having felt like the underdog. With the arrival of her new album The Architect, things changed; she’s become a mother and has decided to turn her gaze outwards to sing about the state of the world through a collection of songs with a socio-political twist. And she’s never sounded better.
