British singer/songwriter Mimi Webb's aching, R&B-inflected vocals meet with deftly constructed pop production on her ear-catching songs of love and loss. Webb's music was given a significant push by social media, and she achieved chart success and streaming numbers in the millions before the release of her debut EP, 2021's Seven Shades of Heartbreak.
Webb was born in Kent, England in 2000 and was interested in music from a young age. Inluenced by artists like Adele and Amy Winehouse, Webb attended Brighton Music College and afterwards set out to forge a career as a professional musician. She signed on with Epic Records and released her debut single "Before I Go" in April of 2020. The song was shared by American social media personality Charli D'Amelio and immediately took off, being streamed tens of millions of times in just a few months. This viral success gave way to a few more singles, and Webb's 2021 track, "Good Without," cracked the Top Ten of the U.K. singles charts. In October of that year, she released her debut EP, Seven Shades of Heartbreak, which also ascended to the Top Ten region of the British charts. ~ Fred Thomas
