RENCE RELEASES EPIC RECORDS DEBUT SINGLE  “EXPENSIVE” FEATURING NOAH CYRUS TODAY

(June 21, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Following support from the likes of Zane Lowe and Ones To Watch and nearly 7 million independent streams, buzzing genre disruptor Rence shares his brand new single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] today. The song marks his official debut for Epic Records and kicks off what promises to be a momentous year for the artist.

Get it HERE.

“Expensive” pairs a propulsive beat and glowing synths with handclaps and a slick bass line. Rence’s voice slips into a deep and dynamic timbre on the priceless chant, “It’s not that I don’t want to, I just can’t afford to love you.” Cyrus appears on the second verse before joining him in hypnotic harmony on the hook punctuated by iridescent guitar and emotional ad-libs.

About the track, Cyrus said, “I’ve been in my own world for almost 11 months, and I’m so excited Rence is my first collab back. The record was undeniable from the moment I heard it, and it sounded electric when we had it finished.

Rence commented, ‘Expensive’ is about when you feel like you’ve given someone so much that you’ve depleted your own resources—like you have nothing left to give. It’s not that you don’t want to give that person the world, but you just can’t afford to anymore, because it’s starting to really hurt you. It’s about looking out for and loving yourself in a sense. Noah added another dimension to the song I didn’t even know existed—I just couldn’t believe it when I heard her verse!”

Be on the lookout for the upcoming music video soon!

Next up, Rence introduces himself on stage in New York, announcing his first show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn July 24. Get tickets HERE.

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. The Brooklyn-based artist, who was born in D.C. and spent his formative teen years in Seattle, first allowed listeners to hear this irresistible inner monologue on his breakthrough independent project, Pink. The project’s lead single “Baby Blue” racked up over 3 million Spotify streams as his total tally approached 7 million. Along the way, peers such as Chelsea Cutler and FLETCHER lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly DillyLyrical LemonadeOnes To WatchElevator Magazine, and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Now, he transforms pop on his own terms.

KASKADE & MEGHAN TRAINOR “WITH YOU” – PSEUDO VIDEO – https://smarturl.it/WithYouPseudoVideo

(June 14, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – One is a legend responsible for smashing boundaries in electronic music, the other has set and broken records for women in the music industry. Together,KASKADE and MEGHAN TRAINOR make magic on “WITH YOU” (via Sony Music Columbia). Speaking of the song , KASKADE says “MEGHAN TRAINOR had the same effect on me as she did on the greater part of the human population when she came into the music scene. Her voice is infectious and distinctive and the soul behind that voice is an absolute authentic force-of-nature. When the opportunity came to work with her it was an easy yes for me. I knew we could put something together that would be fun, meaningful and above all, sticky enough that people can’t help but sing it after one listen. “With You” was a pleasure to put together with MEGHAN, and I can’t wait for everyone to start singing along.” Of the collaboration MEGHANsays, “It was a dream come true to work with KASKADE! He’s a legend and I truly love this song we did together!”

Their collaboration “WITH YOU” highlights KASKADE`s production prowess and ear for melody, along with MEGHAN TRAINOR´s award-winning songwriting (written alongside Sarah Aarons, Robert Gerongco & Samuel Gerongco). In keeping with the self-empowering and triumphant themes of her writing, TRAINOR sings about how she’s tired of wasting her time on men that leave her unsatisfied. KASKADE provides a powerful but sublime instrumental, turning her vocal into an irresistible chorus and laying down textures as fluffy as clouds.

DANCE MUSIC TITAN KASKADE & GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR JOIN FORCES FOR SMASH SINGLE “WITH YOU” OUT WORLDWIDE JUNE 14TH, 2019!

KASKADE (Columbia) has been setting the bar for electronic dance music for decades. A multiple Grammy® nominated pioneer in more ways than one, KASKADE has brought his live sets to arenas around the world. Sold-out shows at venues like the Staples Center in LA and Barclays Center in NYC have made him one of the most successful DJs in history. He’s been voted the world’s best DJ on more than one occasion and has paved the way for electronic music in Las Vegas, taking a residency in 2010 that predicted the wave of superstar parties and events to come. KASKADE has had a number of smash hit collaborations with the likes of deadmau5 and Skrillex, and in May of 2019 released his third installment of the REDUX EP series, which held down the #1 spot on iTunes Dance/Electronic Albums chart. KASKADE’s signature sound has been omnipresent as he has headlined on the mainstage of every prominent music festival this season, and he shows no signs of letting up as his own curated two-day festival on the beach, Sun Soaked, is bending the internet’s capacity for how much people can look forward to July.

MEGHAN TRAINOR first made history in 2014 with her diamond-certified smash single “All About That Bass.” The GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist stands out as “one of only five female artists to achieve a diamond certification from the RIAA”—an honor bestowed upon only 15 other singles to date. Thus far, she has garnered a GRAMMY® Award and achieved seven multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country, and received countless industry awards and nominations. Expanding her influence, she starred on FOX’s hit series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom for two seasons. Following 2018 anthems “No Excuses” and “Let You Be Right,” she celebrated Valentine’s Day 2019 with the love-themed six-song Love Train EP, which paves the way for more surprises to come.

BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MORE SOON

(June 6, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – After breaking the news on social media earlier this week, GRAMMY® Award-winning Atlanta hip-hop superstar and multiplatinum trailblazer Future serves up his brand new EP, Save Me, tomorrow June 7. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records/Freebandz Entertainment

Save Me might just be his most vulnerable, visual, and vital statement yet. This time around, he widens the scope of his signature sound through integration of icy guitars and sparse beats. The opener “XanaX Damage” allows his warbling croon to take flight over delicate acoustic strumming. Meanwhile, “St. Lucia” splits between adlibs about “Tommy Lee and Pam” and “the preacher” as he weaves together a narrative of temptation calling. “Please Tell Me” hinges on a priceless chant of, “Please, please tell me it’s one of a kind,” and “Shotgun” blasts off a tightly wound hook. Everything crescendos towards the somber final transmission “Love Thy Enemies” where guitar entwines with the plea, “I need angels, I need angels, on its way off to the heavens.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

For the artwork and photography, Future enlisted the talents of none other than disruptive high-fashion house Enfants Riches Déprimés and its visionary founder Henri Alexander Levy [Daft Punk, Billie Eilish]. Together, they envisioned the gothic impressionistic palette seen on the cover, merging black-and-white portraiture with decaying urban charcoal. The piece speaks to the continued evolution of Future‘s presentation and cements him as a style trailblazer.

The seven-track project arrives hot on the heels of his seventh album, Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD—released in January. Not only did it bow at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 as his fifth solo offering to top the charts, but it also garnered acclaim from Rolling StonePitchforkConsequence of SoundXXL who gave it a coveted XL rating. In the wake of its release, he performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Ellen.

As he innovates once more, Future arrives to save the game yet again. 

Be on the lookout for a lot more.

Pharrell Williams releases original song “Letter To My Godfather” as tribute to Clarence Avant and his impact on the music industry and African American history.

The feature film releases today globally on Netflix and in select theaters. The song releases today at digital retail, get it HERE

Williams began writing “Letter To My Godfather” the same evening. 


“Clarence Avant connects us all through his incredible impact since before I was born up until now,” said Williams. “He’s the godfather to so many of us — and not just African Americans, most of the industry.”

ABOUT THE BLACK GODFATHER

For decades, the world’s most high profile entertainers, athletes and politicians have turned to a single man for advice during the most pivotal moments in their lives and careers, including Grammy Award® winners, Hall of Famers, a Heavyweight Champion of the World and two U.S. Presidents. That man is Clarence Avant.

The Black Godfather charts the exceptional and unlikely rise of Avant, a music executive whose trailblazing behind-the-scenes accomplishments impacted the legacies of icons such as as Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, and Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Driven by a sense of equality, loyalty, and justice, Avant left the Jim Crow south behind to emerge as a powerhouse negotiator at a time when deep-seated racism penetrated every corner of America. Avant defied notions of what a black executive could do, redefining the industry for entertainers and executives of color, and leaving a legacy of altruism for others to emulate.

Directed by Academy Award® nominee Reginald Hudlin and featuring interviews with Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Lionel Richie, Suzanne de Passe, David Geffen, Jerry Moss, Cicely Tyson, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Jamie Foxx, among others, The Black Godfather pulls the curtain back on the maestro himself, projecting a spotlight on the man who’s spent his entire career ensuring that it shined on others.

GRAMMY-NOMINATED PRODUCTION DUO CHRISTIAN RICH RELEASE “SHIBUYA (GHOST II)” FEATURING JADEN, VIC MENSA AND BELLY

[JUNE 7, 2019 – NEW YORK, NY] GRAMMY® Award-nominated production duo Christian Rich—consisting of twin brothers Kehinde and Taiwo Hassan—have unleashed their new single and music video “Shibuya (Ghost II)” today featuring Jaden [Smith], Vic Mensa and Belly. Get the track HERE via Epic Records and watch the Anime-inspired music video HERE.

After dropping debut album ‘FW14’ in 2015, with features from GoldLink, Vince Staples and Jay Sean, “Shibuya (Ghost II)” is a continuation of Christian Rich’s keen ear for collaboration, as well as sharpening their knack for eerie, yet warm club-ready rap.

On the genesis of the tracks, the guys explain: “We created this track while on a recording trip in LA.  When we got back to Berlin, we sent the track to Jaden, Vic Mensa, and later Belly.  Jaden finished his verses within a day or so.  We were looking for just one verse from each artist but Jaden did 3 verses and liked the song so much that they asked if they could release a version of song as well as, which we thought was dope and agreed to it.”

That ended up becoming “Ghost“, which racked up over 80 million streams. Fast forward to now,  “Shibuya (Ghost II) ” is the next chapter and Christian Rich’s take on the “Super Team” concept, similar to the NBA.

“Delivering songs with superstars all on one song, we see them like combining the Avengers.  Visually we created a short film concept to bring a new look to contemporary music but with nostalgic elements that connect the viewer to forgotten childhood adventures”. Accordingly, the music video is an anime-inspired journey through the Shibuya district in Tokyo: “We wanted to touch on the cartoons we watched as kids in Nigeria – G-Force, He-Man, stuff that’s nostalgic.”

ABOUT CHRISTIAN RICH

Production Duo Christian Rich is formed of twins Kehinde Hassan and Taiwo Hassan. They’ve been nominated for Grammys, and they’ve probably worked on some of your favorite songs. To list a few names: Childish Gambino, Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples, Drake – Christian Rich have been behind the production for some of these acts most forward-thinking tracks. If you really want the history, they’ve been making records since 2001, back when they were students and had moved back across to Chicago from Nigeria, where they’d spent a few years as kids. They sold beats at school, for as little as $25. Later, as part of a production company, they placed songs with the likes of Lil Kim, Foxy Brown and The Clipse. But after a short while they decided to set out on their own, launching with solo self-produced single “Famous Girl” in 2009.

This track caught the attention of Shay Hayley of N.E.R.D, who initially managed the duo. And as a result, their music found its way to Pharrell Williams too. He liked their stuff, and immediately brought them in to work on a record with Diddy – “he called Puffy right away, telling him ‘I’ve got the guys that’ll help you finish your album!” says Taiwo. From there, they’ve built up their discography of features and moved between Atlanta, Los Angeles and now to their current residence, in Berlin.

WORLDWIDE K-POP SENSATION MONSTA X INK DEAL WITH EPIC RECORDS

(May 28, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Continuing a banner year marked by sold out arena shows, tens of millions of streams, and widespread critical acclaim, K-pop supergroup and worldwide phenomenon, Monsta X, sign to Epic Records for their English language recordings and worldwide distribution ex Korea.

“K-pop has indelibly impacted the global conversation and influenced culture everywhere. At the top of that conversation, you’ll find Monsta X. They’re ushering the genre into the future with an original style befitting of their experience, passion, and diverse influences. We’re honored to welcome them to the Epic Records family,” said Epic Records Chairman and C.E.O. Sylvia Rhone.

“We are thrilled to join the Epic Family alongside some of the artists we admire the most. This is like a dream come true and we still can’t believe that this is happening to us. We can’t thank our monbebe enough for their endless support and for making everything possible,” said Monsta X.

The big news precedes the launch of the group’s seventeen-date “we are here” world tour. After kicking off in Bangkok June 1, the boys jet-set from Australia to Europe before touching down stateside for six dates starting in Dallas, TX July 25 at Verizon Theatre. Fittingly, the jaunt concludes at one of the nation’s most hallowed venues, The Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 10. Check out the full itinerary below.

Right now, Monsta X are hard at work on new music—coming soon.

Inventively fusing K-Pop, wild hip-hop, rock energy, and universal pop power, Monsta X set the tone for the international sound. Averaging over 2.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, the group boast a catalog of smashes, including “HERO” [31 million Spotify streams], “DRAMARAMA” [24 million Spotify streams], and “Beautiful” [14 million Spotify streams]. Most recently,  their 2019 Steve Aoki collaboration, “Play It Cool, put up over 9 million Spotify streams and staked out a spot on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart. Entertainment Tonight praised it, and Idolator described it as “a feast for the eyes and ears, and a reminder why Monsta X is one of the hottest acts on the planet right now.

Their most recent offering, Take.2 We Are Here, bowed at #5 on the Billboard top World Albums Chart and garnered acclaim from  Complex, Idolator, Billboard, Cosmopolitan, and NMEPaper Magazine put it best though, “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that Monsta X’s darkly textured but nonetheless high-energy music is the reason why they stand apart from other acts in the vibrant and constantly expanding K-Pop scene. Not to mention, they also peaked at #4 on the coveted Social 50.

With new music on the way, the group makes history this fall as “the first K-pop group at the iHeartRadioMusic festival in Las Vegas” on September 21, 2019.

Among a bevy of praise, Idolatorapplauded it as “a synth-pop treasure, and Ones to Watch praised how she “blessed the world with a means to spiritual enlightenment.” Meanwhile, Paper Magazine touted it on “Bops Only: 10 Songs You Need to Start Your Weekend Right.  The outlet enthusiastically added, “The song’s melodramatic edge and twisty melodies are what truly sell it.

With magnetic presence, otherworldly energy, and dynamic performance, her live show unfolds as an equally unforgettable experience as well. She just wrapped up a successful run supporting LÉON on the You And I Tour in the direct support slot. 

Ultimately, Morgan elevates pop to a new realm in 2019 on tour and beyond.

See the full letter below.

In the piece, Khaled, co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all of their proceeds from “Higher” to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross. As “vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul, the song amplifies this vibration on the highest level possible.

Last night, he debuted the heavenly music video for the track. Threaded together by some of the West Coast icon’s boldest bars and a skyscraping refrain from the crooner, the song might just be the most powerful in Khaled’s catalog.

Not to mention, it uninspired unmatched critical praise. Proclaiming it “a great artistic leap forward, High Snobiety bestowed a coveted 4.5-out-of-5 score on the album. Variety predicted, “It’s surprising, considering his bona fides – not to mention the A-list guests on this album –  that 21 Savage is not yet a household name…i am > i was should change that.” Pitchfork summed it up best by writing,i am > i was shatters the notion of 21 Savage as a specialist with a narrow purview and audience, and recasts him as a star in waiting, all without forcing him into unflattering contortions. It also cements him as a far more original stylist than other hopefuls from Atlanta.”

Right now, he covers the latest issue of Billboard. Check it out HERE!

21 Savage tears up the road throughout 2019.

About 21 Savage:

With an unapologetic flow, bulletproof bars, and deadly hooks, 21 Savage left an indelible mark on hip-hop as a true original. His full-length debut, Issa Album, clinched #2 behind Jay-Z’s 4:44 on the Billboard Top 200, earned a gold certification from the RIAA, and garnered widespread acclaim from PitchforkXXL, and more. At the same time, it produced a string of definitive hits for 2017, including the triple-platinum “Bank Account.” Within months of its release, he returned to the top of the charts on the collaborative epic, Without Warning, alongside Offset and Metro Boomin. It landed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded the platinum “Ghostface Killers” [feat. Travis Scott]. Simultaneously, he featured on the year’s biggest hit, Post Malone’s six-times platinum“rockstar” and joined his collaborator for a sold out summer tour. Showing a greater 21 Savagei am > i was, brings us closer and takes it to the next level all around.

About DaBaby:

Since ambushing the music scene in 2015, DaBaby, formerly known as Baby Jesus, has made a huge impact on the Carolina music scene well before embracing his current alias. He explains his decision on “DaBaby (Intro),” a short introduction on 2016’s God’s Work Resurrected, his first mixtape under the new moniker. Multiple mixtapes followed in the coming months, with 2017 offering Billion Dollar BabyBaby Talk, Baby Talk 2, 3, and 4, as well as Back on My Baby Jesus Sh!t. 2018 continued in a similarly prolific fashion with Baby Talk 5 and Blank Blank. Baby On Baby, released March 1st, debuted at #4 on Apple Music Top 100, #25 on Billboard 200, and earned Dababy a #1 slot on Pandora’s Trendsetters Chart.

What The Press Is Saying About Tyla Yaweh…

“Tyla Yaweh is already doing big things […] there’s a pop sensibility to Tyla’s music that makes it palatable to the masses…” – Pigeons and Planes

“…the 23-year-old rapper is clearly on his own wave and he’s making music that crosses ‘all genres’ with a tip of positivity.” – Hot New Hip Hop

“[His]infectious energy is a key reason Yaweh was able to win over so many people…” – Billboard

“Yaweh lets loose the sort of rock-tinged, trap-infused R&B that’s earned him comparisons to Swae Lee… With stylistic range, a Post Malone co-sign and a sizable buzz at his back, Yaweh is all set to level up. Get to know him…” – XXL

(MAY 7, 2019 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Today, rising genre-defying star Tyla Yaweh drops the cinematic music video for his latest single, “High Right Now.” Watch the video HERE!

Earlier this morning, HYPEBEAST exclusively premiered the visual directed by Sebastian Sdaigui [2 ChainzAriana Grande].

“The song is about my life,” explains Yaweh. “I’m living an ultimate high. I went from being homeless to traveling the globe with Rockstars, being able to connect and spread positive vibes to so many people.”

“High Right Now” proves equally intoxicating and irresistible. Yaweh levitates through an ornate church as gorgeous gothic ballerinas sway to the echoes of airy clean guitar and codeine-drenched trap drums. His woozy flows give way to a fiery falsetto refrain, “I’m so high right now. I don’t think I’ll ever come down. With its ominous setting, this alternative hip-hop séance casts an unbreakable spell.

A standout from Yaweh’s new project Heart Full of Rage [London Entertainment/Epic Records], “High Right Now” has already cracked 8.6 million streams and counting, and currently finds him covering the coveted Signed XOXO playlist on Spotify. Meanwhile, the project as a whole recently tallied in excess of 27.5 million streams world-wide.

Right now, he continues to bring his high-energy show on a world tour alongside Post Malone and Jaden Smith in Australia, having recently wrapped a European arena run supporting Malone himself. Yaweh recently shared an explosive performance video of “High Right Now” live from Europe, which can be viewed HERE. At the end of May, he returns stateside for a series of high-profile festival spots over the Summer and Fall, including Governors Ball (Bud Light Dive Bar Sessions), BonnarooFireflyLollapaloozaLife is Beautiful and more. Additionally, he is confirmed for a slew of European sets, including the iconic Reading and Leeds. Check out the confirmed itinerary below. 

All signs point to a major breakthrough for Tyla Yaweh. One hit of Heart Full of Rage, and you’ll be hooked. Get it HERE.

ABOUT TYLA YAWEH:

A new kind of rockstar, Tyla Yaweh defies everything, even genre. He seamlessly merges R&B, hip-hop, and pop without apology. As a result, he quietly became a phenomenon. Beyond racking up over 30 million cumulative streams, the Orlando-born and Los Angeles-based disruptor has performed alongside everyone from Post Malone to Saint JHN and collaborated with the likes of Ski Mask The Slump God, Juice WRLD, and more. Not to mention, he received acclaim from ComplexHotNewHipHop, and more. Breaking rules and boundaries all at once, he’s primed to explode in 2019 with the aptly titled Heart Full Of Rage.

In a recent piece, Ones To Watch just described her as “the Left-of-Center pop star of your dreams,” and Interview conducted an in-depth profile. Idolator summed up ALIEN best as “an otherworldly, synth-pop adventure.” With a hypnotic vulnerable delivery, elevated presentation that defies gender and genre alike, and inimitable je ne sais quoi, she earned widespread acclaim from the New YorkerVoguePigeons & PlanesTimeNMEWWDi-DHarper’s BazaarGalore, and Paper who exalted her among “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop. She ignited the stage at Lollapalooza and Life Is Beautiful in addition to captivating audiences with the likes of lovelytheband.

Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint learned piano and taught herself guitar during her formative years. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she gravitated towards music and artists who weren’t afraid to be themselves. With all her songs self-penned, she’s also crafted stunning videos that expand her creative canvas and vividly complement her music iterations as evidenced by her debut EP 17 HERO and follow-up ALIEN.

DEBUT ALBUM SET FOR 2019 RELEASE

BROTHER LEO SHARES NEW SINGLE “SHINE” TODAY

(April 18, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Brother Leo—the alter ego of GRAMMY® Award-nominated Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer Ola Svensson—unveils a new single entitled “Shine” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Backed by bright piano, a metronomic beat, and lively horns, the track builds from breathy verses into a show-stopping falsetto-driven refrain on which he croons, “Wonder when it’s my day to shine?” He notably teamed up with GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter and producer Elof Loelv [Rihanna, Tove Lo] to co-write the tune. 

About the transformative single, he had this to say, ‘Shine’ is the first song I wrote for my upcoming album. In a way, it was also the birth of what would become Brother Leo. I was in a pretty dark place when this song came to life. The writing process out to be quite therapeutic and became a turning point for me, both personally and creatively. To some, this will probably just be another happy tune, and that’s more than fine by me—but for me, it’s something totally different.”

It’s also something of a self-fulling prophecy as he’ll no doubt shine brighter than ever throughout 2019 as he readies his first album for release soon!

Brother Leo remains on the cusp of an international breakthrough. The artist’s November 2018 single “Push Up” just crossed 1.5 million streams. Meanwhile, his Fatboy Slim-produced summer single “Strangers On An Island” clocked over 3.5 million streams and counting. Additionally, NME christened it “A gorgeous, laid-back slice of pop magic,” and Wonderland exclaimed, “You’ll be wanting to direct your attention to the surreal, but mesmerizing visuals for Brother Leo’s Strangers On An Island.

Named after Svensson’s more confident and free childhood imaginary twin, Brother Leo officially made his worldwide debut in 2018. The dynamic nature of the music aligns with his rather unbelievable story. Long before his emergence as Brother Leo, mom forced her son born Ola to participate in boys’ choir and take piano lessons when all he “really cared about was football.”At only 17, he played professional soccer for former UEFA-cup team Trelleborgs FF. After singing during a school function, friends clamored for him to audition for Pop Idol. Despite his reluctance, he ended up landing a deal in his native Sweden as a result. Unlocking a quirky, clever, and catchy signature style, Ola achieved a string of number ones off the back of his Swedish debut before making his bones as an in-demand songwriter with cuts for gnashHailee SteinfeldAkon, and more under his given name. He assumed the identity of Brother Leo in 2018 and began writing and recording with Mark Ralph [Clean Bandit, Years & Years, Jax Jones], Coffee [Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber], Dan Grech [Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, George Ezra], and more.

ABOUT TOM WALKER

Tom Walker brings a whole lot of shine, soul, and spirit to popular music and culture. In doing so, the Scotland-born and Manchester-raised singer and songwriter quietly vaulted towards international stardom during 2018. His breakout single “Leave A Light On” achieved global sales of 2.5 million, captured #1 on iTunes in 20 countries, and went platinum in nine territories including the UK, Netherlands, France, Germany and Australia and gold in four countries. Becoming the “6th most Shazam’ed track in the world,” it also generated upwards of 390 million cumulative streams and 110 million video views within six months. As the song took off, he hit the stage for television performances on both sides of the pond, appearing on UK X Factor twice and on The Today Show stateside. A true live phenomenon, he entertained over 800,000 fans in 2018 between headline gigs and a high-profile tour alongside The Script. Topping off the year, he garnered the ASCAP Vanguard Award, placing him in good company with previous honorees such as Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris, to name a few. Additionally, he received a coveted BRIT Award in the category of “British Breakthrough Artist.”

Still, everything merely set the stage for his full-length debut, What A Time To Be Alive, arriving March 1, 2019 via Epic Records. He preceded the release with an updated version of his fan favorite “Just You And I, which previously racked up over 100 million streams.

“The songs are representative of the EP’s description in a statement, which describes the material as widening “the scope of his signature sound through integration of icy guitars and sparse beats.”

ROLLING STONE

Save Me leaves the guest appearances at home, and makes room for an uninterrupted version of Future while he gives fans his signature melodies over trap beats.”
