London has arguably the best music scene around, with thousands of talented musicians emerging every day, most of which are unsigned acts waiting for their big break.
Unsigned Friday brings you the very best unsigned music artists from around the capital, as well as giving these acts a platform to promote their music.
This week, getwestlondon 's Emily Chudy caught up with Jazz singer Jasmine Power, who is currently studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.
The singer grew up on the Welsh coast and moved to London at aged 18 to pursue her musical dream.
On her own genre and style, Jasmine said: "A real mix of Jazz, Neo-Soul, Cinematic and Pop. My style is my own, I've been developing it since I first began writing age 10. I guess I would say it is free and without limitations, I feel free when I write and make my music.
"I grew up on a very wide variety of music from all over the world including; instrumental Jazz and singers including Nina Simone and Ella Fitsgerald, to bands like ABBA and the Eagles, along with West African music, Classical music, Fado, Ska, Film soundtracks, Hip hop and a lot of RnB!
"My favourite artists are; Nina Simone, John Mayer, Chet Baker, Dido, Eminem, Thomas Newman, Chris Brown and Enya."
Largely self-taught until her late teens, Jasmine was always interested in music, inspired by her peaceful surroundings and her parents' eclectic music tastes, but her love of Jazz developed when her mother co-founded the ABERJAZZ festival in 2004.
Musicians such as Tony Kofi, Byron Wallen and Cleveland Watkiss would play the seaside festival, often staying with her in the family cottage.
Jasmine said: "We would stay up half the night listening to them jam and take them on muddy country walks. I was so inspired, I remember thinking to myself, these are the kind of people I wish to spend my life around, this music has such integrity and so do the people in it."
The musician has been playing and performing since she was five years old.
Jasmine said: "I first started singing in a Welsh choir when I was five. Aged six, I took up the cello and I began playing the piano the moment I could reach it, I was totally fascinated by it.
"I always felt music was my calling, there wasn't really a moment of decision, I just knew deep down it would always be my profession and so I dedicated myself to getting good at my instruments and composing."
Jasmine Power is currently in the process of releasing her debut EP, entitled Stories and Rhymes. The eponymous single is already out, and has been played on Gilles Peterson and Jamie Cullum's Radio 2 and 6 Music shows.
Produced by Jasmine Power, the EP also features new musical talents including pianist Joe Armon-Jones, bassist Daniel Casimir, trumpeter Harrison Cole, and drummer Moses Boyd.
Jasmine said: "The reaction to my single Stories and Rhymes that is already out has been very positive and exciting, people really seem to be connecting to my stories."
The EP is being released on Friday May 27; you can pre-order the download or buy the vinyl online .
On the future of her music, Jasmine said: "To make a big impact and inspire with my music worldwide. To make endless creative music videos with my favourite directors. To collaborate with song writers and artists who I have always admired."
A reviewer for Thinking Lyrically , on the EP Stories and Rhymes, said: "Power has some incredible vocals, a soft huskiness to her vocals it really creates something understated and it works throughout this record, having a way of delivering every lyric for greatest impact and that is certainly the case on track."
