Mabel shot to fame in 2015, with her debut single ‘Know Me Better’. She has since enjoyed chart success through a number of collaborations, joining forces with Kojo Funds for the single ‘Finders Keepers’ and teaming up with Not3s for a remix of ‘My Lover’ and the song ‘Fine Line’. She also features on the infectious new single from Jax Jones, ‘Ring Ring’ (alongside Rich The Kid), in addition to dropping her solo ‘COLORS’ session, where she performed a beautiful version of mixtape highlight ‘Ivy’.
Her newly-announced winter headline tour looks set to cap an incredible 2018 for Mabel.

Along the way, Mabel has collaborated with the likes of Not3s (‘My Lover’), Raye & Stefflon Don (‘Cigarette’), plus continue work on her debut album. Mabel has emerged as one of the UK’s most refreshing and positive young musical star, with songs that frequently explore everything from female independence and the challenges of modern relationships to growing up, and into your own.
Mabel McVey, you could say was born into a musical dynasty, and it’s safe to say that music quite literally runs in the blood of the singer/songwriter. The daughter of producer Cameron McVey, who is best known for his work with Massive Attack, Portishead, Sugababes and All Saints, Cameron remains one of British music’s most cherished guardians. Mabel’s mother is Neneh Cherry, the cross-generational music and style superstar who went onto defy then-musical genres.
Speaking to the NME about her family, the rising RnB star said she was keen to carve out her own musical path: “I’m not embarrassed to say I’m their daughter. I’m proud of the things I’ve accomplished.” Adding: “I feel like people always assume things, but that’s just life. I work hard and I’m very separate from what my parents do.”
