Dubbed as 'the outsider popstar we've all been waiting for' and 'pretty darn good' by BBC 6Music, HUSK is the lovechild fresh leftfield pop and 80's synth nostalgia.
A hairbrush diva at heart, from the outskirts of Manchester, HUSK grew up on a diet of melody centred Pop, with the likes of Madonna and Girls Aloud, and is not shy to tell you he’s an avid Eurovision fan. In recent years though, the rich vocals of Northern Soul, and intelligent Pop has influenced his repertoire, taking the textures of Eurythmics, arpeggiators of Robyn, and off-beat rhythms of Little Dragon. Working with production duo Sugar House Music, (Pale Waves/Larkins/Viola Beach) HUSK released his first EP in 2018 that included ’You Got It’, the fun-loving banger earning HUSK a fan in BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson, who has played the track continually since its release. Moving onto more matured stylings inspired by a sultry performance by queen Cheddar Gorgeous ( now of Drag SOS), with single ‘Could You Forgive Me’, HUSK entered sexy alt. Pop territory. With support from Superbia of Manchester Pride and pkay from Janice Long on BBC Radio Cymru, HUSK is taking 2020 on! With an alluring stage energy and an electrifying visual, 2019 saw HUSK play at MIF and to crowds of 15,000 at Pride in Hull and Manchester Pride.
