Ginny Blackmore is a singer who writes songs so searing they hit your soul instantly. Her debut single, "Bones," written in a painful moment of her love life, drastically altered Blackmore's journey, transforming a 27-year old struggling singer and songwriter from Auckland, New Zealand, into one of Epic Records' most captivating pop newcomers. "The music is as honest as I could make it," she says. "It's my perspective on life. I really hope people can hear themselves in it somewhere. That¹s what I care about." With “Bones” and another deeply personal ballad “Sing For Me” as her calling cards, Blackmore impressed veteran music manager Mark Sudack (Mariah Carey) who signed her on the spot. Sudack brought her in to songwriter-producer and A&R executive Tricky Stewart (Beyoncé, Rihanna) and Epic Records Chairman & CEO L.A. Reid then stuck his head out into the hall and called his staff in to listen to Blackmore sing. She nailed it the second time, reducing everyone in the room to tears and landing herself a deal with Epic, which will release her debut album in 2013. The album is shaping up to be an emotional, statement-making pop affair that combines the ultramodern feel of down-tempo R&B which Blackmore loves so much, with her painstaking approach to pop songwriting. It is also a showcase for her powerhouse voice, which she pushes to its limits as Blackmore confides her hopes and heartbreaks with a vulnerability that's unmatched.
