Mabel: rising R&B star on tour
Known throughout the UK for her soulful mix of blues beats, butter-smooth vocals, and tender lyrics, Mabel McVey is the product of a producer and an R&B legend. It's no wonder then that she rose to prominence before she hit the age of 20. A unique presence in the UK music scene, Mabel mixes her love of high fashion and pop tunes to give fans visually stunning, highly artistic music videos, intimate on-stage performances, and a toned-down and slicked-back style that is uniquely her own. Back on tour later this year, make sure you don't miss her. Buy Mabel tickets now at StubHub.
Mabel McVey: making waves in the world of music and fashion
Raised in a musical household in Stockholm and currently based in London, Mabel is the daughter or Neneh Cherry (the well-known champion of 1990's R&B) and Cameron McVey, Massive Attack's famous producer. Growing up, Mabel spent time with both of her parents as they toured and attended shows around the world, and she obviously learned a thing or two about the music business in the process. She fell in love with music at an early age and began writing her own songs at five years old.
Not wanting to take advantage of her parents' many high-powered industry connections to launch her musical career, Mabel McVey went off to study music production and kept her song writing a secret from her parents until it was well-developed and ready to go public when she was around the age of 16. Her big break arrived when she released her debut track "Know Me Better". Written as a meditation on tearing down the walls we build to protect ourselves from new people "Know Me Better" is tender, raw, heartfelt and bold. While Mabel has yet to release a full album, singles such as "Finders Keepers" and "Fine Line" have made waves in the music community.
When she's not making music, Mabel is making waves in the world of fashion. Known for her fresh face, plumped-up lips, monogram necklaces, high-waisted jeans and crop tops, Mabel can often be found sitting in the front row at Stella McCartney's shows or populating her Instagram account with images of her signature, street-inspired, edgy style.
Music, though, remains her first love, and she tours the UK again later this year. Buy Mabel tickets now at StubHub and see her live.
