Watch Zeinab's highly anticipated live performance tonight on the Y&E Series – supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
The Bank Holiday Weekend may be over – but the good times continue on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series tonight, with our next act Zeinab going live on the Hot Press Instagram at 7.30pm!
Dublin-born R&B singer-songwriter Zeinab announced herself as a remarkable emerging force in Irish music with the release of her latest single, 'Forever', earlier this year. Blending elements of neo-soul, jazz, and melodic R&B pop, the track finds Zeinab enlisting the skills of Berlin-based producer Magro – and offers a thrilling taste of what to expect from her upcoming EP, out later this year. Zeinab, who is of part Sudanese heritage, draws inspiration from the like of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, as well as the more contemporary sounds of Frank Ocean, Adele and Beyoncé. In addition to her string of well-received singles – winning the Glen Hansard Bursary for her song 'Dream Come True' – she previously showcased her captivating charisma as a presenter on Christmas FM.
With the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, we've been able to shine a light on some of the best young and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer over the last year – with a brilliant selection of acts joining Hot Press on Instagram for special live-streamed performances.
Following the remarkable success of last year's Y&E Series – which featured 120 live acts, and an audience reach of over four million – the new edition launched last month, with a dazzlingly diverse selection of artists set to join us over the days ahead.
Watch Zeinab on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series, supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, TONIGHT – Tuesday, May 4 – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.
