The Fix List: Riva Taylor

Building up to the release of her new single ‘Deeper Than Us’, co-written by Jamie Hartman, Riva Taylor shares some of her favourite music (admit it, Little Mix are your guilty secret too!) Despite her 27 short years, Riva's an industry veteran being EMI’s youngest ever signing at 12 years old. We can’t wait for her new album released later this year.

The xx - 'I Dare You'


Love an epic drum and these guys do epic electronic... really really well.

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man - 'Human'


This was written by Jamie Hartman who has a few credits on the album. It inspired the soulfulness of my track 'Deeper', which I also wrote with Jamie.

Oh Wonder - 'All We Do'


Love the pairing of their the two voices. I'm all about layered vocals. First heard this in a yoga class in LA and it makes me feel zen.

Ward Thomas - 'Guilty Flowers'


Love country music. These girls have put their own UK fresh pop spin on the genre. And... every girl hates receiving guilty flowers! Fun premise for a song.

London Grammar - 'Hell to the Liars'


These guys are a fusion of so many musical genres. I love the width of their sound, and Hannah Reid's sultry tone.

HAIM - 'Want You Back'


Feel good vibes I'd felt I'd heard before. In a good way! A mature sounding girl group who know themselves.

Little Mix - 'Power'


These girls are my guilty pleasure. Mornings when I'd rather hit snooze... I pop them on and put my running shoes on.

JP Cooper - 'September Song'


He makes me feel nostalgic and remember back to my teens when I use to listen to Gavin De Graw on repeat. Strong image and great written songs. Excited to hear what's next!

Sade - 'Smooth Operator'


Takes me back to my youth. She was always playing in the house. An inspiration.

Harry Styles - 'Sign of the Times'


Something exciting is coming here I reckon... the other 1D boys had better watch their backs! I like his authenticity.

Coldplay - 'Yellow'


From one of my top 5 albums of all time and... my favourite colour!
