LOYLE CARNER

"Loyle Carner is Britain's most recent new hope in hip hop" - The Fader
“Expect Loyle Carner to keep killing it ” – NME
“Carner combines emotive subject matter with an easy flow” – The Observer

On the back of selling out two UK tours, Carner has announced a fresh run of dates including London’s prestigious Koko.

Carner’s music is planted at an intersection between the boom-bap of East Coast hip-hop, jazz-inflected portraits of South London, and soulful, laid back poetry; there’s solid, honest and raw sentimentality running through his sound. You get the sense he leaves no door closed, as though he’s inviting the listener in to come in, sit down, have a cup of tea, confess, and work through their problems together. ‘Stars & Shards’ is about one of Carner’s friends who lost their way – it’s brimming with honesty and humble perseverance, it’s a warm bath of studiously relaxed hip-hop and soul.

Over the last 12 months Loyle has released a stream of insightful and erudite tracks to critical acclaim including his debut ‘A Little Late’ EP and last single ‘Aint Nothing Changed’ which was added to the BBC Radio 1 'In New Music We Trust' playlist. Carner also made the esteemed BBC Music Sound of 2016 long list; the annual industry poll tipping a selection of artists destined for big things as well as collaborating on tracks with Kiko Bun, Cadenza, Tom Misch and Kate Tempest.

Loyle Carner has also just announced a charity project with GOMA Collective. Together they are setting up a cookery school for 14-16 year old children living with ADHD. For more information about this please see here https://www.facebook.com/LoyleCarner/posts/993988767350280
