“Everyone else wanted to be a DJ, I was the only one who wanted to be a singer/songwriter”. Kris Kiss' musical vision was clear cut from the start, Growing up just outside London in St.Albans, he began writing when he was just 10 years old, immersing himself in songwriting and poetry.
Kris considers the year 2000 such a significant milestone in his life that it's one of the meanings behind his pseudonym 2K. It was this point that he dedicated his life to composing songs and writing rhymes, based mainly on his feelings and life experiences.
Kris is currently finalising his debut Mixtape Imagine - Reality due to hit the street October 2012.
Hot on the heels after signing a publishing deal with power house Global Publishing, 2011 MOBO Nominee Mike Hough is set to take the world by storm. Mike started out on his path to break the UK music scene by broadcasting his unique recordings on his YouTube Channel, his talent swiftly became recognised by not only the millions of online viewers but receiving major acclaim from the artists whose songs he had chosen to cover. After charting his buzz-track 'Hero' without the use of traditional PR tools (no funding, no radio, no official video, no TV appearances it peaked at 88 in the Official Charts and came in at 35 in the UK Independent Charts) he was soon being championed by the likes of BBC 1Xtra, MOBO, MTV to name but a few as the one to watch. Mikes fan base 'the Houghligans' is growing daily
Max Pahlsson is on of those rare artists whose powerful and expressive voice defines him. Max grew up listening to dad’s old blues and soul records, and moving to London in 2010 set about honing his live show and songwriting skills attracting the attention of producers both here and stateside. Max features on Chozen’s track ‘Sell Your Soul’ who will be joining him onstage at Breakout
