Alexia Coley is Craig's favourite new artist as she has one of the sweetest singing voices on the soul scene. And we've got her 4 track EP that we'll be sharing with you this weekend. She signed to the super funky Jalapeno records (who are hot hot hot) after winning a competition to play at the Big Chill festival. We are going to find out everything you need to know about this young lady, so don't forget you heard her here first.

And we need you to send in your 3 favourite funk and soul tunes so we can give them a Spinage au Trois. Clear your front room and get ready to 'get ready' because at 8pm Mr Craig Charles will 'Unleash The Trunk of Funk'.
