Ones To Watch 2015: Ady Suleiman

Ones To Watch 2015: Ady Suleiman

With friends in high places singing his praises ranging from Chance The Rapper to Michael Kiwanuka, the youthful and fresh faced Ady Suleiman has already made a few tentative steps into the public eye on support slots with Laura Mvula and Lianne Le Havis, as well as slots at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Bestival.

Picking up the ‘Breakthrough Act of the Year’ award at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards this year, we had to pen a little piece on Mr.Suleiman as part of our One’s To Watch feature for 2015.

Soulful and poignant, his latest demo ‘Say So’ is another slice of laid-back songwriting that demonstrates why we’re tipping him for big things – splicing the contemporary r’n’b, soul and hip hop sounds that have pushed Frank Ocean to the forefront with a classic writing style and minimalist approach, this evocative little gem is an exercise in less is more.

Ady is currently in the studio working on his debut album, and will be playing a headline show at Jam Cafe in Nottingham on Dec 4th.
