Kennedy caught up with Mabel about her Record Of The Week ‘Talk About Forever’, Influences and future collaberations.
Born in Malaga and raised in Stockholm, Mabel now spends most of her time in London. Mabel has music in her blood. Her mum is Nineties singer Neneh Cherry, the pioneer of early R’n’B, and her dad is Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey. She grew up around musicians and would often join her parents on the road – unsurprisingly she has known she wanted to make her own music since she was five. Fast forward a decade and Mabel went on to study music production in Sweden but she kept the fact she was writing her own music a secret from her musician parents until she was 16.
