Indiana

You don't have to rewind far from her recent debut single to track the real beginning of Indiana's story. It started with two accidents; one, the discovery of a dusty piano her older sister had left in storage. With it she began to teach herself, picking up chords easily, using those shapes to write her first songs and discover her voice. The second piece of fortune came when Indiana stumbled across Joe Goddard's lighting-rod remix of Gabriel. She describes it as "the best dance song I'd heard for a long long time. The emotion in Valentina's vocals and the lyrics were really raw and spoke to me." After falling hard for the song she quickly filmed an off-the-cuff version, translating Valentina's ripping vocal into something much more heartfelt and yearning. For those who watched that simple but effective clip Indiana's huge talent was crystal clear.
