It's been a bit of time since my last update but since the end of the Leona Glassheart tour I have been up to some very exciting things.
Firstly.. 'Rikki'! I got called into the studio earlier this year to record the vocals for Eskimo Records and Win Music signed Sweedish london based producer Blende. 'Rikki' has been on soundcloud for 21 days (at the time of typing) and has amounted just under 70,000 plays, a blog by Billboard magazine, airplay on Radio 1 and countless hype feedback loving the indie nu-disco anamilistic robotic vibe that is 'Rikki'. I'm very excited and anticipating my vinyl copy of this TUNE! Check it out here https://soundcloud.com/blende/rikki-original-mix or listen below and download it off iTunes today!
Throughtout Septmeber Katie Holmes and I got asked to go into the studio to record Backing Vocals for Leona Lewis' Christmas album due out in the coming month. Every studio session was as exciting as the one previous. The songs sound amazing and I can not wait till its release. An amazing follow up to the Glassheart tour, i was honoured to be back bving for the lovely Miss Lewis and blending with the gorgeous tone that is Miss Katie Holmes as we recorded each vocal simultaniously into the mic (which came with it's fair share of laughs!)
Following these studio days i got asked to join my BV twin K Holmes again to back up US rapper Angel Haze on her London promo dates at Leeds & Reading festival, supporting Wretch 32 on both nights. Reading definately captured the moment for me; Angel gives 110% when she performs which the crowd could definately feel!
A few days after Reading I got the call to come on board for the Jessie J 'Alive' Tour starting with performances at the Nike festival in Greenwhich park, Radio 2 in Hyde Park and the iTunes festival, which was absolutely amazing! Jessie J tore up the stage to launch her offical day of album release 'Alive'. The last few weeks have been filled with rehearsals and performances, with these last weeks being focused on the 'Ailve' tour. Starting in Northan Ireland then coming back to British, Scottish and Welsh shores, the 'Alive' tour is going to blow Jessie fans away!!
2013 has been a crazy year so far and with only 2 and a bit months to go i'm excited to see how I enter into 2014.
I am particularly excited to get back into the studio in Poland to finish my album vocals in November. I love these songs and I hope you will too...only time will tell.
