A singer from Stanway hopes her first EP will be a big hit.

Kerrie Masters, 29, has launched her One album.

A blend of several genres, including country, blues and soul, the music by the singer/songwriter is influenced by her nan, among others, who introduced Kerrie to jazz.

The songs are inspired by Kerrie’s own life experiences, described by her as “honest songs people can relate to”.

Although Kerrie, who works for a health and safety firm, has released a charity single before for Women’s Aid, this is her debut album.

The mum-of-one, who performed at Wembley Arena in May after winning the Factor Essex competition, said: “Since then there has been a fair bit of interest, and I picked up a lot of momentum in my writing.

“My friends and family are completely behind me, which is really lovely, they have been ever so supportive particularly helping me with my confidence.”
