Best new soul music fixture: Gwen Bunn

Staff Pick

With a distinctively jazz-coated and slightly off-kilter vocal style, singer Gwen Bunn has emerged as the most promising new voice in Atlanta's soul music scene. Bunn made a splash in 2012 by lending her talents to saxophonist Darryl Reeves' album Mercury on the remake of Roy Ayers' classic "Every Time I See You." Later that year, she grabbed mainstream shine by repeatedly winning "Wild Out Wednesday," a talent contest on BET's "106 & Park." Her streak continued into 2013, when she joined forces with acclaimed producer/musician Zo! to record the bouncy track "Count to Five," the first single from his latest release, ManMade. Bunn also handled co-production duties on rapper Schoolboy Q's "Collard Greens," featuring hip-hop darling Kendrick Lamar. On top of all that, she's currently putting the finishing touches on Melody Dungeon, her second self-produced album, which includes the ultra-mellow, super-dreamy track "Epitome" that's been building buzz for months.
