ROYCE 5’9”, STEVIE MCCRORIE & TELEMAN JOIN THE T IN THE PARK BILL
With just over 2 weeks to go until the biggest party of the summer, T in the Park festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager are excited to announce that Royce 5’9”, Teleman and Stevie McCrorie are joining this year’s T in the Park line-up.
Throughout his career, legacy has been a leading force in Royce 5’9”’ verses. Beyond the plaques, chart positions, or whether radio or video supported the movement is irrelevant in 2016. At a time when boutique and couture culture dominates commerce, should music not take notice? Without a bright neon sign, assembly line production, or hypebeast promo, Royce 5’9” produces tailored lyrics with brutally honest texture. One of Hip Hop’s most captivating and compelling journeys, Royce 5’9” is sure to blow away the crowds at this year’s T in the Park.
As a young boy Stevie McCrorie had a traditional working class childhood, growing up on a council estate where everyone knew each other. Music was not a focus in the McCrorie household. Stevie spent half of his life playing in bands learning from the age of 15 and trying to catch a break. In 2012 Stevie took time out from his band "Stevie and the Moon" and focused on becoming a father to his daughter Bibi, focusing on a career as a Firefighter. He always knew deep down this was part of the plan: to provide a stable grounding then get back to his passion that is his own music. In 2015 he realised what that was when Stevie won the fourth series of BBC 1 talent search The Voice. He immediately became the show’s biggest success story when his debut single – a cover of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine’s Oscar-nominated track Lost Stars – hit No 6 in the official UK charts and No 1 in Scotland. He has now released his Debut album, Big World that reached No. 4 in the Scottish albums charts and is continuing to play headline shows, festivals and constantly working on new material for his next album.
The art of songwriting has been the driving force behind Teleman’s second album Brilliant Sanity; the process of crafting the immaculate pop song, the dogged pursuit or the perfect hook. The result is an album that appears fastidiously and impeccably made, but also charged with joy. Tommy Sanders, their singer and guitarist, is an accomplished and distinctive lyricist with a passion for the music of words themselves. Together with his brother Jonny on synths, Hiro Amamiya on drums and Pete Cattermoul on bass they have honed themselves into a spectacular live act.
