Rukhsana Merrise

Rukhsana Merrise is a singer-songwriter from West London, signed Communion. In 2014 Rukhsana set herself the task of writing, recording and releasing a song every week of the month, and her September Songs EP was born.

In the past couple of years, Rukhsana has racked up a quarter of a million plays on Soundcloud, attention from BBC Radio 1, touring with Jack Garratt, Laura Mvula, Bear’s Den and Leon Bridges, and performances at Glastonbury, Somersault and Bushstock.

Merging traditional folk with contemporary influences, Rukhsana is as influenced by Minnie Riperton as she is Chris Brown, resulting in an intriguing, soul sound with a twist.
