Train of Thought

What a Week…BBC 1xtra Playlists & UMA Nominations

By My Thoughts

This is a bit of a belated post to be honest. I didn’t really know how to put into words how things had progressed during the start of this October season, but undoubtedly I’m pretty happy about things right about now!

If I keep it 100% with y’all, the thing is that all of these forward motions happened at a time when I was trying to explain to some of those closest to me why I’m hardly at hand or present as much as they’d like me to be. It’s difficult to justify the time you’ve spent dedicated to something when people can’t readily see the fruits of your labour. I found it was even harder to walk people through the sacrifices we make as creatives and why “time” is one of those things.

Anyway…fast forward a few days and I get the news the title track for my recent EP, “Train of Thought“, is playlisted over at BBC 1XTRA courtesy of the great people at BBC Introducing. (Tune in all this week to catch #TOT getting spun).

Beyond that though, I also get the news that beyond a performance slot at this year’s inaugural Unsigned Music Awards, I’ve also been nominated for 2 awards!

The industry panel have me up for:

  • BEST ALBUM/EP/RECORD
  • BEST URBAN ACT

It’s extremely humbling to be up in the mix alongside some insanely talented individuals.

I’m here continually giving thanks, ecstatic and hoping I get to take the award home.

Big ups to everyone who’s been supporting and rocking out with the EP and just generally been following my career up until this point. I appreciate every single one of you.

I hope these recent events show just how dedicated I am and act as a smoke signal to others. To the peeps close to me, I’m sorry…but this is where my time’s gone, and long may it continue to yield dividends! Love y’all.

In the Studio with…Sincerely Wilson

By In the Studio No Comments

OK, so those of you who follow me on Instagram would’ve seen that I recently hopped in the studio with UK based soul singer Sincerely Wilson.

I’ve been a fan of Wilson for many years now, after meeting him at a small show we we’re both on the bill for.  He struck me then as a stand out artist as he laid soulful tones on a heartfelt track during his perforamnce. We got to talking after each of our sets (I remember calling him UK’s answer to Dwele, complements abound, but he’s evolved since then) and a friendship was born. The thing is we hadn’t worked on anything together musically and since we have a real friendship beyond music I really wanted to take the opportunity to do just that with this new record I’m working on.
