Over the years we’ve witnessed some incredible artists in their infancy, eagerly anticipating that moment when they start to skyrocket. In this feature, we set out some of the artists we’re currently working with who also possess that ‘certain something’, so you can enjoy tomorrow’s big names today…
Today’s Future Icon is Ellis Johnson
Ellis Johnson is a singer/songwriter from Manchester, UK whose sultry acoustic pop, like an airy four on the floor drum beat wafting in on a summer breeze peppered with great hooks and mature lyrical themes, is the dictionary definition of meaningful feel good music.
“Cracking set of pipes” – Guy Garvey, Elbow
A full-time musician, Ellis performs in bars and clubs across the North West, swims a few Olympic lengths before breakfast and has personally sampled most, if not all, brands of lager known to man while engaging in his passion for cooking. He is a passionate supporter of anything that will stop Brexit and, since you ask, of Manchester United.
WANT TO HEAR MORE? Ellis Johnson is taking part in RISING, our brand new series of live-streamed events, which aims to support and raise money for War Child UK to assist their work during the Covid-19 crisis.
HOT VOX have raised thousands of pounds for War Child through live gigs and events over the past two years. Now we’re taking RISING online, and with the help of our immensely talented roster of artists, we hope to raise even more vital funds for this valuable cause.
Tune in to see Ellis Johnson streaming live on Friday 12th June at 9.00pm
