[box] About the ‘Music Junkie’ Series: Striving to bring attention to music artists that are about to burst or reignite. It is just that simple. Each entry will be updated with press on these artists as it becomes available. [/box]
A colleague while working at City Theatre knows introduced me to “Ghost” by Ella Henderson and well, I am hooked. A contestant on an international version of X-Factor, Henderson is one of the select few participants who did not win, but is winning in life as her career continues to gain buzz. Released in June 2014, it reached number one in the UK and has achieved similar success in countries like New Zealand and Belguim. The U.S. market is a tough nut to crack for international and even domestic artists (Tori Kelly, Jessie J, Nick Hakim). Written by Ryan Tedder (also responsible for Beyoncé’s “Halo” and many more hits), this song fuses the synth-pop beat with an empowering message to let go of that past relationship and move forward. Perfect for a work-out playlist, take a listen and let me know what you think.
