Very happy to announce a new signing to the label - Alex Highton, a Liverpool-born, late-blossoming singer-songwriter. "A scouse with a voice, Alex Highton's distinctive sound is sincere and playful he sings to us like we are all his hunny. BBC6 Music describes him as a "world-class practitioner" and he is just that." - The Guardian
It's rather a return to BB*Island. We've been involved already in his debut album release, "Woodditton Wives Club", which we put out for Germany back in 2012. It's been a while. In the meantime he recorded a sophomore album, "Nobody Knows Anything" , released in 2014 through Robert Rotifer's UK based Gare Du Nord label.
Now, we will release his third album "Welcome To Happiness" on March 30,
Vinyl or CD are available to pre-order here.
Rather than the acoustic bucolic musings of "Woodditton Wives Club" (“a masterpiece,” - Heaven Magazine) or his disconcerting take on existence that was "Nobody Knows Anything" ("Sufjan Stevens like audacity." Mojo Magazine), his new album expands his sound into a something much more complex and sonically adventurous...
"Electronic pop with British charm.....it's fantastic that." - Charlie Ashcroft - Amazing Radio.
