Like young talent in small cities and towns up and down the country, 21-year-old singersongwriter Etham dreamed of releasing his own music. He achieved that ambition recently with the appearance of his ‘Stripped’ EP. But what happened next was beyond Etham's wildest dreams.
Among those smitten by Etham's songs is Shawn Mendes, who recently revealed himself as a fan, while Picture This have invited Etham on their upcoming tour with them. He's also recently been working with Mike Spencer, the songwriting wiz fêted for his work with Rudimental, Ellie Goulding and Years And Years. Etham has also been working closely with Nick Atkinson & Ed Holloway, the songsmiths behind the likes of Dean Lewis & Lewis Capaldi.
His first-ever EP has now had 5 million streams, while the video accompanying his track ‘Better Now’ has had an incredible 12 million views. With his rapidly increasing number of fans hanging onto his every word on social media, it’s safe to say that Etham's unforgettable voice and vulnerable pop songs have connected in a big way. His latest ‘Stripped’ release has been streamed more than 3 million times in just 16 weeks.
