A year on from touring with Jools Holland, Purdy has released a special Halloween edition video of her song "My Creation" with clips from some of her favourite A & B Movie horror films dating back from the 30's.
It's a great time of year to re-live these movies which include Frankenstein (1931), White Zombie (1932), Carnival of Souls (1962) and The Undead (1957) that help to encapsulate the theme of the song of creating an idea of something in someone that doesn't actually exist. In effect a monster.
This comes just a week after Purdy released her double A-Side "Too in Love", she recorded in the same studio as The Beatles back in 1969 (Studio 2 at Abbey Road) with a 30 strong orchestra. These are now available on vinyl and digital. The recording session can be seen in her new video of "How Did You Do That?".
The Jazz influenced singer/songwriter whose music has been described by Craig Charles (BBC Radio 4) as “so slinky it shouldn’t be allowed. Last year Purdy supported Jools Holland on tour with dates including a stop at the Royal Albert Hall. She has sung alongside Jamie Cullum at Cheltenham Jazz Festival and supported Lana Del Ray at a concert on Necker Island and recently presented and performed at the West London Music Festival alongside Mica Paris and now she has released two beautiful new tracks in the lead up to her second album due for release in 2018.
When asked about the influences behind the tracks Purdy explains that "How did you do that" is about falling in love when you least expect it or even want to. It's the inner emotion of "How did you do that?" - but you don’t want it to stop - "Do it again". "Too in Love with Love" comes from "feeling a little hopeless about the world, realising just how much loveless behaviour we become exposed to from day to day, but when I sing this song it feels positive and reminds me and hopefully others not to give up on the thing that makes this life truly beautiful."
Purdy's track “Dream in Colour” from her album “Diamond in the Dust received almost 200,000 plays on Spotify with zero marketing budget. With influences such as Julie London, Peggy Lee and Nancy Sinatra, Purdy is also touring across the UK with her incredibly vibrant speakeasy Pop-ups. This all started due to a hugely well received launch night behind a little secret door in Purdy's home town of Henley-on-Thames. Tickets as well as Purdy's new tracks on vinyl and digital can be bought from the Purdy Store before general release on 20th October.
