Track of the Day: Denai Moore - Gone

Today's TOTD is courtesy of 19 year old London-based songstress, Denai Moore.

Though this young artist has only been writing music for two years she has a natural, raw quality which makes for compelling listening. On 'Gone' she shows hints of Bon Iver and James Blake, in this luscious piano ballad. Rich, detailed vocals, paired with emotive lyrics and a simple piano melody create three and a half minutes of pure beauty.

Having released an EP called 'Saudade' earlier this year, she is already gaining supporters in high places, earning the praise of contemporaries such as Plan B and Tom Odell; as well as upcoming support for Iron & Wine on their summer tour (see below). At such a young age she's very much one to keep an eye out for in the future, though she's already looking on the verge of big things now.

23rd May - Electric Ballroom, London - supporting Tom Odell
30th May - Opera House, Manchester - supporting Iron & Wine
31st May - The Barbican, London - supporting Iron & Wine
1st June - Cigale, Paris - supporting Iron & Wine
17th August - Green Man Festival, Wales
