Bringing together the classic songwriting of Stevie Wonder with the 80s pop sensibilities of Cyndi Lauper, North London based singer songwriter Zarif creates her own brand of quirky retro-tinged soul. After featuring on hip hop production duo The Nextmen's critically acclaimed album Something Got You/This Was Supposed To Be the Future (Part 2) including the single Something Got You feat. Zarif (Radio), Zarif had a busy 2008 touring with The Nextmen, playing countless festivals such as Glastonbury and Bestival, and supporting Taio Cruz on his UK tour. She even caught the attention of the Grammy award winning John Legend, who asked her to duet with him at this year's Tommy Hilfiger Sessions.
Zarif's debut single Let Me Back is available to download from 5th April and in stores from 6th April. Described as "an upbeat slice of sunshine soul" by Attitude magazine, you can download a free acoustic version by signing up to her mailing list at her official MySpace.
