20 year old indie solo artist, Ten Tonnes, shot to attention with the self-release of his debut EP ‘Lucy’, which was quickly followed with BBC Radio 1 support and the lead track later being added to the Radio 1 playlist. The support continued with a key show at Reading and Leeds Festival on the BBC Introducing stage, as well as more radio love from Radio 2, BBC 6Music, Radio X (Top Tip for 2017) and KCRW.
Ten Tonnes live following has continued to build in 2016 from early solo shows, to adding his band, blowing away the Reading and Leeds crowd, as well as support tours with rising groups such as Blossoms, The Magic Gang and Palace.
Now locked away writing the next release, being produced by Hugo White (Maccabees, Matt Maltese), Ten Tonnes has only just begun and is set for an even better 2017 and beyond.
