4 2 WATCH – Sneak peek at 4 up and coming artists! – Kezia Soul/Phe Phe/Phil Middleton/Mohawk Radio
KEZIA SOUL –
Kezia Johnson aka Kezia Soul is a singer/songwriter from Birmingham, England. Influenced at an early age by Reggae, Folk, Rock and R n’ B she has an updated Jazz Funk/Soul style.
As her name suggests, she has a beautiful soulful voice and certainly demands your hearing attention, as with great female Jazz pioneers of the past. Kezia is from a talented family and along with her sister Phe Phe she is rapidly taking the music world by storm.
Kezia has already appeared as backing vocalist to up and coming Hip Hop stars around the UK and has tour experience with Birmingham based Jazz/Funk band Genius Collective. Her first single was released on iTunes and Google Play and was entitled “I Love You” produced by My Boyz Beatz on GT’s Records.
Kezia Soul’s performance at The Jazz Café in London in October 2014 was a major highlight which got everybody talking about this hot new star.

PHE PHE –
Pheleba Akima Johnson aka Phe Phe is an accomplished dancer and singer/songwriter from Birmingham, England. Sister of Kezia Soul , talent definitely runs in the family!
Not only is Phe Phe a great singer, she competed and won gold at British Championship level in Rhythmic Gymnastics! She has already collaborated with several producers, DJ’s and Hip Hop/Dubstep artists and has a great career ahead.
After her debut E.P. “LIMA (Lost In My Aura)” was released on iTunes was received very favourably among fans and industry professionals her light is sure to shine even more sooner than later.
The atmospheric Club style music backdrop colliding with Phe Phe’s sweet vocals makes an interesting blend. To me it’s a Kelli Ali (Sneaker Pimps) sound but with a deeper mystery. Such as her prominence on the album “Daydreaming” with French Dubstep producer Von D she has gone from strength to strength. She recently featured as one to watch in 2015 on Sian Anderson’s show on 1Xtra.

Mohawk Radio are a 4 piece Rock band from Manchester. The line-up comprises of Mia Page, James Gregory, Sean Frankland and David Quinn and they play in an Alternative/Rock/Pop style. The powerful vocals of Mia are backed by dynamic guitars and drums.
More Pat Benatar/Heart than Paramore, it is melodic, authentic anthemic Rock. The band won “Rock The House”, beating thousands of bands across the UK. They also won PureFM’s 2014 Stockport’s Finest.
The band are managed by Chatfield Entertainment http://www.chatfieldentertainment.com/
Their unique sound brings back the real rock n’ roll live band and have earned rave reviews and a blossoming fan base, as well as international radio and TV airplay!
The band have released two E.P.’s entitled “Halfway To Heaven” and “#1” and I, for one, can’t wait for the album releases. With the gorgeous Mia’s killer voice and the guys’ exciting power play this band are sure for global stardom.
