Sid Batham announced his first full band headline show at Electrowerkz in November 2013.
Securing main stage slots at the likes of Lovebox and Wireless festivals on the strength of his very first gig for industry publication Music Week in early 2013, Sid Batham’s live shows are all-encompassing and unmissable, completed by a five-piece backing band that have already won rave reviews for the select handful of shows they have played to date.
The track that turned multiple heads ‘All Lies’ is a bold statement of intent; soaring piano riffs sit underneath passionate vocals that overflow with pained emotion and smooth hooks. A voice unarguably unique, Sid Batham ties together an epic pop sound with undeniable edge.
Unlike your average pop artist, Sid writes all of his own music, playing guitar and piano and co-producing his entire first album with new producer Sigala, even before being signed. Producer du jour Cyril Hahn has also sampled Sid’s vocals from ‘All Lies’ for his own debut single ‘Raw Cut’ released on PMR Records last week, amassing a quarter of a million plays in just a few weeks.
Sid’s first ever London headline show was his last full-band show of that year, rounding off what had been an incredible and accelerated first few months on the scene.
