Mimi Webb – Reasons

Mimi Webb’s rise to stardom has been pretty meteoric over the last twelve months. There’s good reason for it too; this is some of the most exquisite ballad-pop you will experience. And that immense vocal… you won’t forget in a hurry.

“For me, this song really represents the feelings of loneliness, but in the way where we are all just people made up of a bunch of different things.

Previous singles ‘Before I Go‘ amassed over 12.2 million Spotify streams and 600k YouTube views, while more recently ‘I’ll Break My Heart Again‘ is already on 1.5 million Spotify streams and 128k views.
