I am a music consultant from Glasgow, Scotland, specialising in the discovery and development of musical talent. I have a passion for neo-soul and hip-hop music and started my career in music by setting up my own label in 2007.
Emeli Sandé was the first artist I signed; I released her first record and later licensed it to Virgin EMI. I have worked on projects by acoustic hip-hop pioneer Me One, Grammy-nominated US artist Muhsinah and the late UK soul legend Lynden David Hall. Over the years I have supported many local emerging acts in various capacities, including Lewis Capaldi, and I have also worked with several singers from TV shows such as The X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice.
I have been fortunate enough to work with hugely talented, successful and award-winning industry professionals – songwriters, producers, musicians, mixing/mastering engineers, specialists in press, radio and licensing/synchs – who have collectively worked with some of the world’s biggest acts, had number one records and sold millions worldwide.
