Cerose

+ MORE

Cerose

Cerose comes from a predominantly traditional Jamaican Pentecostal church upbringing. He grew up in Brixton, South London. He incorporated his feelings about life, as a young man while living in inner-city London by 'chatting', a term used for rapping in a Jamaican dancehall style. When Cerose was 16 years old he spent six months in Jamaica sponsored by a local small time producer. Through his musical journey in Jamaica he had the opportunity to develop as an artist and record at Arrows, King Jammy's, and the world famous Tuff Gong.

As Cerose got older and evolved as an artist, so did music around the world. "Chatting" now became “spitting bars” (a street term for rapping). Cerose spent many years in the UK music scene working with artists such as Gigs,Blade brown, Ghetts etc after flirting with the UK scene for many years not to mention 2 prison sentences, Cerose and his business partner, Dre London, who was his manager at the time and a childhood friend, began to look towards a new sound, so October 2008 they packed their bags and went to America to Pursue the “American Dream”. Cerose would travel back and forth from UK to America writing, recording, and networking on a tourist visa 3 months at a time sometimes sleeping on the floor & on people's sofas all in the name of music for the next 6 years. During his time in America Cerose had the opportunity to make music with many respected producers and artists such as cut master c, dame grease, Harry fraud, Ransom, French Montana etc but as time went on Cerose began to get more and more frustrated with the comprising “lifestyle” of the industry and some of the strange things that was going on around him that seemed to be normal to everyone else. Slowly without realising Cerose was losing respect and love for hip hop, disgusted with everything around him & lost the passion to create music. Always a firm believer he was put here on earth to make music, after recently returning from LA January 2014 Cerose accepted to himself that it's time to knuckle down & stop chasing his “dreams” get a “real job” & he wasn't going to continue making music. God had other plans. Due to his heavily influenced Christian upbringing Cerose has Always had an awareness of God, & from a child a particular interest in eschatology/end times prophecy as he used to hear his father speak of it all the Time. The time that followed Cerose began to look into the bible, studying with his father and for the 1st time genuinely understanding what he was reading as if the words “came alive” also separately watching documentaries and sermons on YouTube, he quickly developed a passion like a burning fire for God is blazing inside seeing how the prophecies are being fulfilled in “real time” the word of God convicted him instantly. Now Cerose is on a mission to use rap music to prophesy of Jesus return, wake up the sleeping church, point the lost souls to the Christ & to expose wickedness false prophets & false teachings.

We are a trio of siblings who have been playing together since being old enough to hold an instrument. Our parents were the worship leaders of our church growing up and were the ones to instill in us, a deep passion for worship. Our background has been more in playing and writing more congregational worship music but we have more recently developed a unique style from a mixture of influences, and began writing more contemporary songs that reflect our journeys with faith and personal encounters with God.

Ooberfuse

+ MORE

Ooberfuse

A songwriting duo composed of Hal St John and Cherrie Anderson based in Woolwich, London. They are unafraid to deep-sea dive into the deepest oceans of human emotions to colour-up drab contemporary life. Their songs are audio footprints left behind by people impelled towards invisible things. On what sets Ooberfuse apart from their peers, an influential UK music critic says: “Ethereal electronic pop with the complex beauty that Ooberfuse has will endure.” Well-crafted songs delivered through powerful, emotional and heartfelt vocals combined with east-meets-west electronic music are Ooberfuse’s trademarks.

Cherrie Anderson’s vocal…reaches out of the headphones from bar one and shakes hands with your ears. It’s just gorgeous... Classy, well-made pop music.” : Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing

Odd, and disquieting stuff from the British electronica duo…eight parts chilly winter's night, to two parts theme from the X-files.” : Guardian Music

Very cool and quirky!” : Boy

One of Ooberfuse’s strengths is their live performance, having played hundreds of gigs all over the world. They are equally at home performing to an audience of 2 million in Madrid, to hundreds in one of Rio de Janeiro’s notorious favelas, or in front of the House of Lords in the UK. They recently toured the UK, China, South Korea, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Canada, the Philippines and Iraq. They graced the stage of some of Britain’s most prestigious venues – including the O2 in Greenwich, Leicester Square Theatre, Bush Hall and Trafalgar Square.

Support for Ooberfuse has come from various credible music tastemakers such as Paul Oakenfold, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Ministry of Sound, BBC Introducing’s Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly and DJ Mag.

Growing up in love with the street he describes his former self as an unproductive member of society engaging in anti social behaviour and criminal activity. When he met Christ InderPaul Sandhu became active in outreach work with young people and those who find themselves in the prison system.

He then went on to run wild with his talent and love for old school hip hop delivering the good news with a funky fresh vibe, full time. The occasional plot twist is thrown in when he hit's you with his soothing and melodious vocals showing listeners another angle of himself.

His stage presence is guaranteed to excite and make the sternest of faces crack with his effortless humour. He is currently working on his solo EP titled the "#iPaulEP". Expect this EP to have a dual flavour, where the rawness of hip hop shares the same stage as the peace of Worship. Plot twists to be expected - #iPaulEP

Sarah Teibo

Sarah Teibo

Sarah Téibo is gradually becoming highly sought after in UK Gospel and internationally following the release of her debut album ‘Walk With Me’ on all digital music platforms on the 8th of May 2016. This was unveiled with a live gig at London’s 606 Jazz Club and subsequently bagged her a MOBO nomination for Best Gospel and two JUMP Music Video Awards in the same year.

This is a follow on from her debut single ‘Steal My Joy’, which was a huge success late 2015, charting at Number 2 in the StepFWD Christian Charts in December 2015 and bagging her two nominations for ‘Best Newcomer’ with Premier Gospel Awards and GXMM Awards in 2016.

The second of four children, Sarah was born in London, England but also had the privilege of growing up in Nigeria where she started singing in choirs from the age of ten. It was from this early age that it became evident that she was one to be heard and watched.

Her love for music was highly influenced by her parents’ taste in music and their rich vinyl collection which featured amongst others, Soul and R&B legends like Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross. She grew up listening to these phenomenal artistes and recalls memories of singing along to Marvin Gaye with her mom.

Through tumultuous experiences in her early teenage years where her family was faced with eviction and homelessness, Sarah learnt the importance of faith in God and started writing music to express both her fears and her faith. These proved a great source of strength through the most trying of times.

In her 11-track album which ranges from soulful, infectious numbers such as ‘New Day’ and ‘Special’ to bouncing up-tempo tunes like ‘I Will Sing!’ and deeply inspiring tracks like ‘Keep The Faith’, Sarah fuses her uniquely soulful yet contemporary style and powerful lyrics to produce a new and exciting sound which some music critics have described as ‘fresh, urban yet classic’.

Following the launch of her album, Sarah has kept up the momentum, singing along side Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Charles Jenkins in May, headlining her own concert with American Gospel artist Lisa McClendon on 5th August and performing at one of UK’s largest Christian festivals – Creation Fest, also in August 2016. Sarah continues to keep busy with her first headline gig for 2017 planned to take place at the prestigious Hard Rock Cafe London on 18th January.

‘Walk With Me’ is now available for purchase on www.sarahteibo.co.uk and for digital download from all major online music stores.
