One of 2010Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s best new artists V V Brown will be heading out on the road this spring in support of her debut album Ã¢â‚¬ËœTravelling Like The LightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. Her first single, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Shark In The Water,Ã¢â‚¬Â was recently featured as iTunes Single of the Week and came in #2 most added at Hot AC radio that same week. The New York Post describes it as Ã¢â‚¬Å“so crazy catchy that it’d make Kelly Clarkson green with envy.Ã¢â‚¬Â The album is currently available exclusively on iTunes, where it debuted in the top 15 on their pop album chart.
Recently, V Vs songs have made dozens of impressive appearances on television (Cougar Town, The Vampire Diaries, CSI: NY, 90210, and ABCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Desperate Housewives), with print and online media catching on quickly. Perez Hilton writes, Ã¢â‚¬Å“We LOVE love LOVE her first U.S. single, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Shark in the WaterÃ¢â‚¬Â and USA Today notes she Ã¢â‚¬Å“knows how to juggle elegance with attitudeÃ¢â‚¬Â. V V was most recently named the new face of Marks and Spencer alongside Twiggy, Dannii Minogue, Ana Beatriz Barros and Lisa Snowdon.
The 25 year-old singer has already been tantalizing American ears for months, Ã¢â‚¬Å“her vocal shines through every track” (Elle). SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll now get her chance to showcase those insanely singable, danceable and memorable songs with her live show. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about letting out all these ideas IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had locked up in my mind,Ã¢â‚¬Â V V states.
