Birmingham vocal powerhouse Stealth is stepping into the ring with an astounding new take on neo-soul with his debut EP Intro. The three track emotive hard-hitter is a distinct marker of a formidable new voice on the UK music scene.
Stealth has risen to prominence and left his mark as one of the most sought after voices in dance music. He has co-written with and featured on the collaboration between drum & bass heavyweights Netsky Vs. Metrik with ‘Can’t Speak’, the latest output from production extraordinaire Nitin Sawhney ‘When I’m Gone’, and has become a Radio 1/1Xtra favourite from his work with Roger Sanchez on ‘Remember Me’ and the fiery ‘Fearless’ with Drumsound & Bassline Smith.
2015 saw Stealth carving a distinct path of his own with the title track of Intro. The brooding first output from Stealth is awash with the classic blues influences of Howlin Wolf, the captivating soul reminiscent of Hozier or James Bay, all matched with the serrated edge of Plan B and The Weeknd among its pounding rhythmic heartbeat.
The single saw Stealth championed by BBC Introducing and gain a wealth of early high profile press support from the likes of Shortlist, Music Week, Red Bull Music, Gigwise and FAULT Magazine to name but a few.
Off the back of turning these tastemaker heads, Stealth set light to the start of an impassioned live trail. He began the blaze with his very first headline show selling out at Servant Jazz Quarters, London to support the launch of ‘Intro’.
Stealth has also supported Jamie Woon, Zella Day and Tiggs Da Author during their UK tours and has taken his first steps overseas where he performed to a sold-out crowd at the Zermatt Unplugged Festival, Zurich.
Elsewhere on his Intro EP, the blistering rapture of ‘Judgement Day’ and its sombre apocalyptic honesty has already been supported by Sky Sports and synced within their coverage. While the bluesy soulful hum of ‘I Don’t Need Your Love’ is one of the most intimate moments found in an EP that already pulls hard on heartstrings.
Stealth is a dexterous songwriter and impressive vocal talent that is quickly cutting above the rest. With the imminent release of the Intro EP, he will soon be joining the top flight of British male vocalists with his captivating talents.
