On Wednesday, The Old Blue last hosted a free Great Escape Festival London showcase in association with TicketWeb. We had backstage access, here are some of the highlights of the night:
Buzzing Birmingham MC Kofi Stone energetically kicked things off:
He got the crowd going and brought fellow Birmingham artist Kalu on stage who provided an impressive vocal performance. The pair had excellent chemistry and bounced off each other very well.
The sky’s the limit for this young rapper, you’ll be hearing his name again for sure.
Raheem Bakaré was up next bringing a groovy band and his smooth Electro RnB sound with him.
Bakaré has a breathtaking live vocal and lets face it he’s cool AF -you’ll be hearing more from him soon too.
The Hip-Hop headliner Manu Crook$ came with his trusty talented DJ and oozed star power throughout his lively performance.
Manu Crook$ is the most promising Hip Hop artist to come out of Australia in recent memory. He’s planning on breaking Europe this summer … stay tuned.
If this is just a taste of the quality that will be on display in Brighton at The Great Escape Festival this May – you simply have to come!
Manu Crook$, Raheem Bakaré and Kofi Stone all play the festival this year. Get your tickets here ticketweb.co.uk/thegreatescape
