Parris is a South London songstress with the voice of an angel. Her music is a seamless blend of the old and new, reflecting her life experiences and varring musical influences. From a young age Parris was brought up on the late greats like Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn and Nina Simone. These vocalists, as well as her piano studies, gave Parris a strong musical foundation which was built upon as she grew older. R&B and gospel music played a large role in her musical development. At school Parris was taught by Clinton Jordan of the Kingdom Gospel choir for 5 years. At the age of 16 Parris began her training as a classical soprano. This continued when she moved to the Caribbean island of Anguilla. During her 2 years there she joined a Soca band and began her professional career as a singer songwriter. After releasing 2 albums with her band in Anguilla, Parris came back to London to further pursue her music career. Since her return, Parris has worked on many solo projects and has also formed an R&B band which she gigs with regularly.

To whom it may concern, I have recently had the pleasure of working with Parris as she performed at an Open Mic Night which I organised. I had previously seen amazing content from her social media and decided to contact her to be a part of my event. From the start she was very timely in getting back to me and it was always in a professional manner. I could tell I was dealing with someone who, was not only organised but, took their craft very seriously from the type of questions she asked regarding the event and what she would need in order to be fully prepared. On the event day Parris arrived way before schedule, she was very friendly to everyone present but wasted no time familiarising herself with the venue set up as well as liaising with the technicians and myself regarding details to her performance. I had no doubt in Parris' vocal abilities but she delivered a performance that still managed to astound not only myself but every audience member as well as the rest of the creative roster. It is clear that Parris had put a lot of background work and practiced relentlessly to pull of such a flawless act. All in all I cannot recommend Parris enough not only as vocal talent but as an industry professional. I am already in talks with her regarding future collaborations and look forward to working with her soon. Regards Fury WD

73 Acacica Road, London, E11 3PQ 06/12/2018 WHO EVER THIS MAY CONCERN Khadija is a very hard worker. I’ve known her for about four years and worked with her professionally for two constant years as her producer. She’s shown great communication skills and her understanding of music theory is evident in our writing and recording sessions. Khadija is a driven individual but allows laughter to interrupt our sessions every now and again, which I find to be the best way to work. Therefore, she’s easy to communicate with and understands her work ethic and anyone would be lucky to have her. Kind Regards, D’Angelo Gumbs London 07849522410
