Mabel

Mabel was born in Spain, grew up in Stockholm and lives in London. With all that travel and the deep basslines rumbling throughout the home, she soon realised hers was not an average family. Her mother is Neneh Cherry. Her father is Cameron McVey, producer of Massive Attack’s revolutionary ‘Blue Lines’ (1991). It wasn’t until she was sixteen that they came home to find out that she was also making music. Her first songs were just as indefinable as her parents’ work. She makes R&B whose maturity far exceeds her age. In 2019, Mabel was nominated for best new artist at the Brit Awards. She didn’t win but soon had her first major hit with ‘Don’t Call Me Up’. It has now been played 500 million times on Spotify. There must be some interesting conversations around the breakfast table in the McVey household.
