Early life

Mabel Alabama-Pearl McVey is the youngest child of English music producer Cameron McVey and Swedish singer Neneh Cherry. Through her mother, Mabel is the step-granddaughter of the American jazz musician Don Cherry, granddaughter of Swedish-Sierra Leonean highlife and afrobeat musician Ahmadu Jah and the niece of Swedish singers Eagle-Eye Cherry and Titiyo. Her sister Tyson, half-sister Naima and half-brother Marlon Roudette are also singers. The family lived in Alhaurín el Grande for two years prior to Mabel’s birth before relocating back to Notting HillWest London, England when she was two years old.

At age four, she taught herself to read through phonetics and audiobooks, but soon developed anxiety from being sensitive to her surroundings and being bullied due to racial backgrounds. Her parents—who were against the use of medication—encouraged Mabel to express herself through music and a journal. The following year, she learned piano and wrote her first song.

To help manage her anxiety, the family moved to Sweden when she was eight and lived in her mother’s native countryside home near the town of Hässleholm in southern Sweden, and later moved to Stockholm in October 2004. First she attended an international school, but later transferred to Kulturama a school with aesthetic training and courses including musical, music & song as well as visuall arts and design.  At age 15, Mabel enrolled at the Stockholm music school Rytmus Musikergymnasiet (a music high school) where she took a three-year course in songwriting, production and music theory. She commented on her time at the school on Swedish radio: “I was drawn to RnB and wanted to write songs on piano, but the most popular students wrote indie songs on guitar.” While in high school she had a popular Swedish style blog, chronicling her girl-gang’s style. It was so successful that it landed her in the front row of international runway shows with her mother Neneh Cherry, including the likes of Stella McCartney and the Paris Fashion Week. Mabel’s stylist is her Swedish high school friend Simone Beyene

And for the first time, I have decided to let my family in. I need them. They are my anchor that keeps me grounded, but they are also my compass that guides me back to my true self. As soon as I feel lost or inadequate”.
