NEWS: Tyler James Reveals “Single Tear” Tour

Tyler James unveils his first single from his forthcoming new album.

Since signing a deal with Universal/Island Records, Tyler has been feverishly working in the studio, songwriting with the likes of Jamie Woon, Fraser T. Smith and Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am.

Single Tear was produced by Electric, part of the legendary Stargate production crew.  An emotional gem, it’s an off centre pop song with a dark, almost eerie edge that announces Tyler as a songwriter and singer to be reckoned with. A second chance for an incredible, quality artist, his first album “The Unlikely Lad” included his duet with Amy Winehouse, Best For Me. Mitch Winehouse, in his book, My Daughter, credited Tyler for helping break Amy’s career by putting her CD in the hands of those at Island Records. Following The Voice, the album re-entered the iTunes chart in the Top 5 to immense critical acclaim.

“It came out of nowhere,” says Tyler, “It’s an emotional song, I think I’ve poured the last year into it, it’s the culmination of the most intense, life changing year of my life.”

“I’m inspired by so many artists,” says Tyler, “I learnt falsetto from Maxwell, I love Lauryn Hill and Otis Redding, people who sing with soul.  That’s not about doing a million riffs – when they sing, I believe them.”

“It’s what I love doing,” says Tyler, “Writing songs, touring forever, it’s all I’ve ever wanted.  So much has happened to me and I was never in the right place to write it down, write songs about it.  Now everything is pouring out of me.  Sometimes songs develop over long periods, other times they just come to me, but I love the craft.”

Discovered early in his career by producers Stargate and manager Simon Fuller since starring on BBC’s The Voice, when a nation fell for Tyler’s performances, he has appeared with his show mentor will.i.am at the Radio 1 Hackney Weekend and Isle of MTV in Malta.  A stunning rendition of Maxwell’s own cover of Kate Bush’s This Woman’s Work for SBTV’s A 64 series proved that Tyler can do it anytime, anywhere.   Along the way, has attracted a massive 180,000 Twitter followers.

Tickets are selling fast to his headline show at the London’s Shepherds Bush Empire in November. In fact, so quickly that two more dates have been added and go on sale Fri 31st August at 9am for Manchester Academy 3 (Sun 18th Nov) and Birmingham Glee Club (Mon 19 Nov).

NEWS: will.i.am To Join David Guetta At Alexandra Palace Show

David Guetta has just announced that will.i.am will join him for an exclusive back-to-back DJ show atAlexandra Palace on Saturday June 2nd. The friends and collaborators will spin together for the first time ever in the UK. This special performance promises to electrify the landmark London venue. The pair have partnered up behind the decks in the US and blown the roof but never before on British turf. As a DJ will.i.am has played many major shows; including Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and David’s F*** Me I’m Famous party at Pacha Ibiza.

The artists have collaborated for the past few years since Guetta produced “I Gotta Feeling” and will.i.am wrote and performed on David’s One Love beats – fitting that one cut is One The Dancefloor and another I Wanna Go Crazy. will.i.am features on Guetta’s current platinum album – Nothing But The Beat – with “Nothing Really Matters”, also the title track of Guetta’s movie.

The gig follows “The Voice” finale on the same night, where will.i.am and Guetta’s other collaborator – Jessie J – go head to head. It’s gonna be one helluva party..!

David says “Working with will changed my life; he’s such a great person and a true friend. He’s an alien! A genius! He was into the rave scene early and was the first to spot Love Is Gone. He called me and I was like “wow – you want ME to produce for The Black Eyed Peas?” Crazy.. That call led to me producing I Gotta Feeling. It’s so organic – we still make music just for fun. We share the same passions. When we play together its us sparking off each other – and for the first time ever, the UK can see it live. We’re both competitive on the decks, so expect a battle – of brothers!” 

Also performing is hot Dutch talent Nicky Romero with NERVO opening.

VIDEO: Ruth Brown “Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean”

With British teenager Ruth Brown having wowed both the judges and audience with her passionate rendition of “No One” in her battle against Five Star’s Deniece Pearson on the BBC’s hit talent show “The Voice”, here at The Kaje we could not help but be reminded of the phenomenal vocal dexterity of her American namesake, the late but great Ruth Brown. Showcased here on her hit “Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean”, we hope that Brown continues to shine in her quest for stardom, but equally hope that some light is shed upon her late but great namesake.

VIDEO: Cheryl Cole “Call My Name”

Post X-Factor axeing Cheryl Cole’s career had been written off by many. Having become the face for pretty every product going, the former Girls Aloud singer promised that 2012 would see her back in the charts and bigger than before. With her manager will.i.am taking her place as the nation’s favourite talent show judge, Cole has hooked up with superstar producer Calvin Harris and created a choon!! “Call My Name” may not be as instant as former lead singles “Fight For This Love” or “Promise This”, but it ticks all the boxes to be a superhit.

VIDEO: Delta Goodrem “Sitting On Top Of The World”

Former Neighbours star Delta Goodrem proved her musical capabilities with a series of sensational ballads which skyrockets her from soapstar to superstar. However after a stunning start, it appeared that spark had blown and Goodrem was on a downward spiral, with the public more interested in her eventful lovelife than her musical output. But with a coaching role on the Australian series of The Voice and a new album in the offing, Goodrem is determined to show she is ready to rise once again, and if it means doing a dance routine to an incredibly catchy but equally beautiful track then she is fair game…

VIDEO: Kat Graham “Put Your Graffiti On Me”

Kat Graham is no doubt best known to you as Bonnie in ‘The Vampire Diaries”, but the child actress turned twentysomething starlet made her debut musical outing on will.i.am’s “I Got It From My Mama” back in 2007. Since then she has tourned the Black Eyed Peas and is all set to release her fourth solo single, the addictive “Put Your Graffiti On Me”. While the “Honey 2” and “17 Again” is not about to give up her glowing acting career, she could well be set to steal J. Lo’s crown as pop diva/dancer/actress all-rounder…
