MYSTORY

I started writing songs with my best friend Russell Aylett when we were 18 years old. At 25 we had a Management deal and had toured with 80's pop favorites "Brother Beyond". For one reason or another that was as close to real success that we ever got and our band dissolved a year later.

 

In 2006 I decided to give music another go. I started working on some solo material with Russell agreeing to produce some of the songs but scrapped the project following Russ's untimely and shocking murder in April 2006. My best friends passing hit me hard and making music seemed insignificant for years. In late 2010 after much persuasion, I reluctantly joined a covers band just as a hobby. 

 

2011 in many ways the worst of my life. I got divorced and being a part-time Dad took me to the edge of sanity. I threw myself into songwriting and persuaded some of the members of the covers band to start playing original songs. The guitarist and I started collaborating and ADProject was born. The first 3 years were great and we recorded 2 albums and played a number of successful shows. The final 2 years were filled with frustrations and varying levels of commitment from the other members of the band. In March 2017 we played our final gig. 

 

By the summer of 2016 however, I was already plotting a solo project. I had started to keep my best ideas separate from the band and went into the studio and recorded a solo single “We Have Come A Long Way”. It was a revelation. Finally, I felt fulfilled and excited again by what I was doing. 2017 saw the release of two more singles and I shot my first music video for the debut single. I was working harder at my writing than ever before and was also learning more and more about marketing and promotion. In 2018 I released my debut album “London E12” and shot my 2nd music video in Spain for my 4th single “If This Is The End”. 

 

In 2019 I played my first shows as a solo artist and released my 5th and final single from “London E12”. Throughout 2019 I continued recording tracks for album 2. I started collaborating with more people than ever before and began mentoring others to market their music using my experience.

 

In September 2019 I released the first track from my sophomore album “HEALED” and shot a short film for it called “What You Didn’t Say”. Shooting on location in Malaga Spain was a truly memorable experience. In January 2020 I had to reassess my goals as the standards I was setting myself required far more funding. My 2nd single from album 2 "But It Does" had cost more to produce than anything I had recorded before because I now knew exactly how I wanted to sound. To continue recording like that would mean a long delay in releasing the 2nd album. Should I quit? Is this just a really expensive hobby? Lots of things crossed my mind but I quickly knew I couldn't give up. I love what I do too much. So I thought let's see how "But It Does" is received and then decide. 

 

Upon release in January 2020, it was streamed 10,000 times on Spotify in 8 weeks by far my most successful song to date. I have since been nominated for Best Solo Artist in

"The 2020 ESSEX Panic Awards" and have released 2 more singles from my sophomore album "H E A L E D". 

MyFUTURE

 So I've told you my STORY SO FAR... now I want to tell you about MY FUTURE STORY and why I want YOU to be a part of it. 

 

MY PLANS :

So what's coming in 2021?  I will be releasing a new single in February and then my sophomore album  "H E A L E D" next summer. I will be recording a special LIVE performance to coincide with the album release too featuring songs from both of my albums. I hope then to play a series of live shows next autumn (pandemic permitting). So watch this space...

 

MY PASSIONS :

Every release and live show I do is dedicated to helping my chosen charity LOVEBUTTONGLOBALMOVEMENT 

The Love Button Global Movement is a non-profit organization that promotes a culture of love by inspiring our human family to act with loving-kindness in our daily lives. I believe in an increasingly volatile world wearing the Love Button to show you believe in love and its power to transform our world is becoming more and more important. Love Button supports educational and humanitarian programs that empower individuals and uplift communities locally and globally.

 

MY INSPIRATIONS :

Musically I have been inspired for many years by GEORGE MICHAEL. He is, in my opinion, the greatest Singer-Songwriter of his generation. More recent heroes are SOHN  JAMES BLAKE  LORDE & JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE I look up to them all with awe.

 

MY TEAM :

I am a lyricist, vocalist, and melody writer. I have a team of 3 extremely talented songwriter/producers that I take fully formed ideas to and we develop them in the studio or more recently remotely. Without these guys, I would be nothing... They are... 

ELLIOT RICHARDSON  SBNJMN & RORY DUNCAN. I also have a wider team helping with my visual content CALVIN WEST and HOLLY FARNDELL

 

The most important part of my future though...

IS YOU!

Without your support now and in the future, I cannot grow as an artist. My goal is to continue to release music without compromise and without YOU that won't be possible. So please come with me and be part of my FUTURE STORY by signing up to my mailing list and following me on my socials

LONDON E12

"It's taken me all my life to make this album. 

I didn't realize that until I started to write it.

All of the mistakes I've made,

all of the lessons I've learned,

I really don't think I was ready before.

I have made plenty of music already that I'm proud of but this is finally the real me.

This is what I wanted to say 

the way I wanted to say it.

It isn’t about pain, 

It isn't just a release. 

It is my truth, my art.

A lot of it is looking back 

trying to understand who I really am.

I felt compelled to connect with my past with this album. 

To finally confront my demons before I could move on with my life.

And through making this music 

I'm not afraid anymore, 

I am at peace.

This is my time 

and it feels wonderful!

 

 

This is LONDON E12"
