Discovery: Stark x Ayoni

All out of Love is the new team up between London-based songwriter and producer Stark and Barbados-born singer Ayoni, two names that are lighting up the pop scene.

Ayoni has found herself covered favourably by some of the most influential music blog and sites and among good company on Spotify’s editorial playlists. It’s easy to see why. Her vocals are emotive, with a touch of melancholy, akin to Adele.

But it’s the combination of those vocals with Stark’s production that really makes All Out of Love hit-worthy. There’s a range of influences in the instrumentals – disco, samba, R&B and I even detect a little troubadour. Stark says he draws inspiration from Mark Ronson and there is certainly a match there in terms of a big, complex sound.

Stark has received support from BBC Radio and the aforementioned influential blogs. You can add us to the list! Check out All Out of Love below.
