Release date: TBC Label: Polydor
MiC LOWRY, one of the most exciting new British bands, have announced a new single, ‘Oh Lord’, released today. The single, which blends their signature vocal harmonies and arrangements, may sound familiar to some with a distinct sample of the legendary Phil Collins’ classic ‘In The Air Tonight’. ‘Oh Lord’ received it’s global premiere on Radio 1’s Scott Mills show today. Produced by Scandinavian hit-makers The Family, ‘Oh Lord’ is a slice of RnB pop perfection and is released just in time for the five talented young singers to join Justin Bieber on the European leg of his Purpose World Tour.
The five-piece vocal harmony group, made up of Delleile Ankrah, Akia Jones, Kaine Ofoeme, Ben Sharples and Michael Welch, all grew up within a mile of each other, and started singing together in their early teens. Having all attended Calderstones School in Liverpool (formerly known as Quarry Bank, John Lennon’s alma mater), the five formed a band at a youth arts centre. MiC LOWRY honed their live show in the early days at local gig venues including Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club.
In such a short period of time MiC LOWRY have gained an amazing following. They have been heavily championed by Dave Monks on BBC Introducing Merseyside followed by BBC Radio 1Xtra. They have done interviews with Sarah-Jane Crawford, Nick Bright, MistaJam and were personally invited by DJ Target to perform on the Introducing stage at Glastonbury. With the MOBO Unsung Award and BET nomination for ‘Best International Newcomer’ last year, it’s clear to see big things are just around the corner.
Bieber fans will be treated to the impressive harmonies and spellbinding vocal blend that have become the band's trademark. As soon as the group have finished their own sold-out headline tour in Liverpool, London, Birmingham, Leicester and Manchester, they join Justin in Stockholm on 29th September and go on to perform 37 European dates in 22 cities. Bieber and the boys take the show to arenas across the UK including Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Glasgow and no less than six nights at London’s O2 Arena where they will be playing to an audience in excess of 100,000.
