Former BIMM Institute Brighton student Mimi Webb boasts almost 6 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Her debut single, ‘Before I Go’, was used by one of the biggest TikTok influencers on the planet, Charli D’Amelio, who shared the song with her 111.3 million followers. Since then, Webb has signed with Epic Records, received radio play worldwide, performed on The Ellen Show, and most recently, landed a top 10 chart position in the UK Singles Chart.
Mimi describes her sound as “very big, really emotional music”, which makes sense when looking at the musicians that she cites as her biggest influences: Amy Winehouse, Adele, Sam Smith, and Emeli Sande. This sense of big emotion shows in her songs; there’s a sense of defiance in her music, whilst being catchy and moody all at once.
Her vocal style suits her euphoric ballads perfectly. ‘Before I Go’ is no different with her powerful vocals taking over. The track was co-written by BIMM Institute Brighton songwriting alumnus Sam Merrifield, who has written toplines for Westlife, Gorgon City, James Capaldi, and loads more.
Mimi finished 3rd in the prestigious BBC Sound of 2022 list. The list aims to showcase the most exciting rising stars in music with the acts all hand-picked by a panel of impartial music industry experts from around the world. Mimi is currently working on her debut EP, due for release this year.
Her latest EP, Seven Shades of Heartbreak, has gained an enormous 240,000,000 streams.
In June 2022, Webb performed at the Platinum Party at the Palace to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of the Queen.
