Girl of the world

In the 1990s, Spain experienced a huge cultural and musical wave. Spanish territory became a source of inspiration for many Anglo-Saxon artists. Music producers Cameron McVey and Neneh Cherry were among them. As well as finding a creative refuge in Spain, they also found the perfect excuse to start a family.

Thus, the musical couple fell in love with the Spanish territory, and on February 20, 1996, they welcomed their daughter Mabel Alabama Pearl McVey in Alhaurín el Grande, Málaga. Growing up in an environment of musical influence and stimulation, Mabel became interested in the arts, particularly music, at an early age.

Mabel moved to Sweden at the age of three due to her parents’ fast pace of life. With her parents’ help, the singer embarked on a wonderful journey towards music. Mabel learned to play various instruments in Stockholm, including the piano. Additionally, she took private music and singing lessons.


Since she was 11, Mabel has been composing her own songs. Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, and Sherry Hill are some of her biggest influences, aside from her parents.

The birthplace of it all, London

Mabel’s parents, avid connoisseurs of the musical world, decided to relocate with their daughter to London after she finished her studies in Stockholm, so she could begin her journey towards music. Part of the decision was also driven by Mabel’s request, who, despite loving Stockholm, felt somewhat behind her musical aspirations.

Mabel made her music debut in 2015. Since Mabel did not have any type of record company, she used SoundCloud to distribute her music to the world, following the footsteps of Justin Bieber and Billie Eilish. So, the Spanish presented her first single From her, Know me better.

It quickly gained popularity among SoundCloud users. Mabel began to climb the success ladder with a marked pop influence. Her first recording contract was with the British company Polydor in 2016, when she presented the song My boy my town. By doing so, the Spanish became one of the main radio stations in the United Kingdom.


Europe’s largest record company is Polydor Records. Due to its ownership by Universal Music Group, this company has access to the best music in the world. The Black Eyed Peas, Ellie Goulding, Björk, Lana del Rey and Björk are among the artists he has contracted.
