Chi - "Antidote" (video) (premiere)

The Bristol-born singer makes a strong first impression on this special live performance.

Bristol native Chi is set to release her new EP Burns Bridges on 13 November, and as you can hear in the special live session performance of "Antidote" below, she creates a sublime blend of orchestral pop and R&B.

"My first ever recording session was in my cousin's garden shed at 13," she says about her musical background. "We wrote a song called 'Are you gonna keep me waiting?' It was heavily R&B influenced. I was just getting to grips with my voice and I found the whole experience exhilarating, I remember being completely focused and felt like I might be naturally good at something."
