The R&B croon­er and Grammy nom­in­ated song­writer, Joe, is def­in­itely one of the favour­ites for diehard UK R&B fans.

Enter­ing the R&B and New Jack Swing era in the early ‘90’s, Joe’s up-tempo and soul hit­ting hits from his debut album ‘Everything’ in 1993 and fol­low-up album, ‘All That I Am’ in 1997; plus, his most suc­cess­ful three times plat­in­um selling inter­na­tion­al album ‘My Name is Joe’ in 2000, earned him his pos­i­tion as one of the Kings of R&B.

Reign­ing the charts with solo suc­cess and hit col­lab­or­a­tions such as ‘Thank God I Found You’ fea­tur­ing Mari­ah Carey and Nas, ‘Still Not A Play­er’ fea­tur­ing the late great Big Pun‘Ride Wit U’ fea­tur­ing G‑Unit‘Where You At’ fea­tur­ing Papoose and remixes/features with Kelly Row­land, Fantas­ia, Shaggy and Gucci Mane; plus Joe’s joint single with 50 Cent on ‘Big Rich Town’ for the theme track of the pop­u­lar US crime drama show ‘Power’ extends Joe’s rel­ev­ance over 25 years in the music industry.

With 13 stu­dio albums and more than 15 mil­lion records sold, Joe has undeni­ably stayed true to his craft pro­du­cing time­less R&B clas­sics such as, ‘All The Things (Your Man Won’t Do’), Stut­ter’‘I Wanna Know’Let’s Stay Home Tonight’ and If I Was Your Man’.

Return­ing to the UK stage for the first time in three years, Grammy, MTV and MOBO Award win­ning singer/songwriter Brandy, is one of the most suc­cess­ful inter­na­tion­al female R&B artists of the ‘90’s. Burst­ing onto the scenes in 1994 with her Bill­board No.1 break­through self- titled album and hit debut single, ‘I Wanna Be Down’; R&B’s new­comer Brandy swarmed the charts selling over six mil­lion cop­ies world­wide and chart­ing the top 5 pos­i­tion on the UK charts.

The song­stress’ fol­low-up five times plat­in­um selling album ‘Nev­er Say Nev­er’, a mix­ture of pop and R&B bal­lads, released in the midst of her bud­ding act­ing career on the hit show ‘Moe­sha’ in 1998, hit the charts selling over 16 mil­lion cop­ies and scor­ing a stag­ger­ing top 20 chart pos­i­tion in 12 coun­tries world­wide.

Releas­ing a fur­ther four more suc­cess­fully selling albums with hit col­lab­or­a­tions world­wide -‘Full Moon’ (2002), ‘Afro­dis­i­ac’ (2004), ‘Human’ (2008) and ‘Two Elev­en’ (2012), Brandy has released some unfor­get­table hits such as, ‘What About Us?’, ‘Talk About Our Love’ writ­ten and fea­tur­ing Kanye West, ‘Afro­dis­i­ac’ and ‘Put It Down’ fea­tur­ing Chris Brown.druhill

The names Sis­qo, Nokio, Tao, Smoke E. Dig­glera and Digit­al Black mak­ing up the multi- plat­in­um selling group Dru Hill def­in­itely need no intro­duc­tion to UK fans!
