Our Rising Star this month is the unassuming Rainy Milo; a South East London gal about to take the music industry by storm. Boasting a soulful yet powerful voice, this British and Guyanese beauty has recently released her debut album ‘This Thing of Ours’, an infusion of R&B and jazz influences. Describing her style as ‘tomboy meets femme fatale’, she certainly approaches fashion as she does music; full of confidence and authenticity. We caught up with this babe to chat current obsessions, dream collaborations on what’s on the cards for 2016.

Best gig you ever played?
I played a festival in Ireland when I first started performing, I was really new on the scene so it was just me, my drummer and like 20 fans in this huge festival tent and it was such a vibe! I’ve played much bigger crowds since then but I’ve always been grateful to my early fans who came to support me at that show when I was just starting.
