SK Shlomo knows how it feels to be on top of the world. For over a decade, the genre-defying, award-winning, recording-breaking beatboxer has set new standards for his craft.
As Shlomo, he burst in to the mainstream collaborating with Björk and performed with famous fans from Damon Albarn, Lily Allen and Jarvis Cocker to Imogen Heap, Martha Wainwright and Rudimental. As the first ever World Looping Champion, he taught his friend Ed Sheeran some tricks. He's been Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre for years, played the main stages at Glastonbury more times than he remembers, won rave reviews for his autobiographical one-man shows and even had a feature film made about him. But despite the standing ovations and the accolades, the London-born musician, now back as solo artist SK Shlomo, would feel oddly empty inside. Behind his reinvention lies a realisation – that throughout his 20s, despite composing and producing for other artists, as well as for film and commercials, he had resisted becoming the solo recording artist he desperately wanted to be for fear of failure.
Under his new moniker SK Shlomo, he releases his self-written and produced debut album Surrender in March 2019.
