A musical masterclass from Melissa James

Watching the sublime Melissa James perform to a rapt audience at the Royal Festival Hall. She counts Billie Holiday and Nina Simone among her influences, something that’s reflected in her own music – which I fell in love with at first sight, as it were. And Melissa’s voice is a thing of beauty – smoky and soulful, you could lose yourself in it for hours.
