Your guide to this au­tumn’s cul­tural high­lights

Who? Birm­ing­ham singer Ma­halia (above) penned her first song aged eight and was signed to a la­bel by 13. Now 2O, she means busi­ness.

What does she sound like? File in-be­tween Jorja Smith and Kelela. Ma­halia puts mil­len­nial con­cerns (ig­nored mes­sages, sh*tty exes)

through a Nineties R&B fil­ter.

You have my at­ten­tion…

Good. She tours the UK in Oc­to­ber.

Who? 22-year-old Nor­we­gian singer Si­grid (on pre­vi­ous page) – win­ner of BBC Mu­sic Sound of 2018.

Why? Her an­gelic spin on Scandi pop veers from heart­break­ing hon­esty to pure banger ter­ri­tory.

Where can I hear more? Buy her EP Raw or catch her Novem­ber tour.

Who? Alisha Boe, of Net­flix’s di­vi­sive 13 Rea­sons Why.

What’s all the fuss about?

Boe’s emo­tive per­for­mance as Jes­sica stole sea­son two.

I’ll look out for her... The third series of 13 Rea­sons is out next year. She stars in indie short Yes, God, Yes with

Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer.
