Tinuke tipped for success after releasing her first record

Date 4.02.2020

A singer songwriter from the University of Northampton has been tipped for success in the music industry after releasing her first EP.

Worth The Risk is a six-track collection of songs from Tinuke Jonah, who graduated from the Popular Music course in 2019.

Two of the songs on the EP were produced by Tony Platt, whose 40-plus year career has seen him work in the studio with AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Buddy Guy, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Motörhead, Foreigner and Iron Maiden.

Tony, who is an Associate Lecturer at the University, is confident Tinuke is set for a bright future.

He said: “I have every confidence Tinuke will find success in the music industry – hopefully sooner rather than later.”

Tony added: “I have had the pleasure of working with Tinuke on a number of occasions over the last couple of years.

“She is a consummate professional and her attention to detail is very refreshing – ‘getting it right’ is far more important to her than just ‘getting it done’.

“Her songs, and especially her lyrics, are beautifully crafted to show off her superb voice – so soulful – she really feels the emotions she sings about.”

Working with Tinuke on the EP were her fellow Popular Music graduates, Kristina Tetereva, Shaphan Smith and Samuel McLeod, who all played on the songs and also shared composition, production and engineering duties.

Tinuke is quick to thank the team, and is now looking forward to people discovering her music.

She said: “Having this EP released is a major achievement and I am so thankful to everyone who worked so hard on it.

“We spent long days and nights trying to make sure everything was just right, it’s my first project and I hope each song makes people feel something as it did for me. I couldn’t have asked for better people to work with.”
