About Abi Farrell

Described by London’s ‘Soul Stripped Sessions’ as “a powerhouse and then some” and recently played by the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC 6 Music, Oxfordshire’s Abi Farrell was raised on a soundtrack of female-driven pop, funk and soul. Influences from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Eva Cassidy and Chaka Khan may all be present in Abi’s music but each song is brought into the here and now by her effortlessly pure voice and lyrical dexterity.

In November 2019 she released her debut EP ‘The Only Way I Learn’ which has amassed over 50K streams to date. Following its release, Abi was named Richer Unsigned’s ‘Artist of the Week’ - “Abi’s control and vibrato of her incredible vocal tone is truly stunning”.

At an East London jam In February 2020, a chance meeting with Nick Corbin (New Street Adventure, Lack of Afro, Laville), sparked a songwriting partnership that would develop fruitfully over lockdown. A shared love of soulful music contributed to ‘Empowered’ - Abi’s solo composition, re-produced in demo form by Nick - and the co-written ‘I Will See You Through’.

The songs attracted the attention of producer, Mitch Ayling (The Milk), who invited Abi and her band to record at Woods Lodge Studio in Essex. ‘I Will See You Through’ became Abi’s debut single on the newly established Big AC Records and was quickly embraced by the underground soul scene.

The single earned rave reviews and worldwide radio exposure, including plays from the likes of Craig Charles (BBC 6 Music), Robert Elms (BBC Radio London), and Kurtis Powers (The Face Radio, NYC). This was followed up by a second single, 'Empowered', which has taken the soul scene by storm and was awarded a 10-star review by Blues and Soul Magazine. A limited edition 7" vinyl featuring both singles is out now and has been collected by vinyl enthusiasts all over the world. 2021-2022 will see more singles from Abi in addition to a string of live dates to bring her soulful sound and unforgettable voice to stages across the UK.
