Vince Kidd, finalist of The Voice UK, has teamed up with Showcase Live for his first mini headline tour and here are the details:
20th June: London, UNDER THE BRIDGE
20th June: London, UNDER THE BRIDGE
21st June: Manchester, SOUND CONTROL
23rd June: Brighton, COALITION
Appearances can be deceiving and Vince Kidd is a fine example of how true this is. His small frame, bleached hair and tattoos provide a startling contrast to his big, rich and husky voice; more reminiscent of a seasoned old soul-man than the young urban rebel he appears to be.
The 21 year old son of a South London cab driver and the only musical member of his family, Vince is no stranger to being called a misfit. He was singled out as a child to join the local church choir but quit after one rehearsal, “because it didn’t sound anything like Sister Act.” He soon discovered vocal heroes Lauryn Hill, Sam Cooke and Terence Trent D’arby and spent years trying to imitate them before deciding he wanted to write his own songs in his own style. Sony/ATV publishing quickly realized his ability to pen a good tune and signed him to their roster of talented writers in 2011. Since then he has been working on his own brand of ghetto-fabulous pop which incorporates throwback soul, hip-hop swag and is bound for nothing less than Illuminati status.7
Get your tickets while you can!
Ed Drewett will join us for his first London show having signed with Polydor earlier this year!
Ed, who co-wrote All Time Low, Glad You Came and Lightning for The Wanted, is now signed to Universal as well and is ready to take on his own assault on the charts! We’ve heard some of his new material and lets just say it’s AMAZING! The singer-songwriter from Essex first came to public attention with the single “I Need You Tonight” with Professor Green which reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
Joining him will be Johnny Tremorheart and the already announced J Marie Cooper and I Am Tich.
