Record Deal for Musician from Gravesend, Kent (UK)
A Wadebridge music studio says it is confident that it is about to launch the UK's next big star.
Alive Music Studios has signed Oscar Rodrigues, aka OD, who lives in Gravesend, Kent (UK) Nr. London. The 29-year-old is a hip hop, rap and grime artist whose latest music video for his debut hit single "My Town" was released on Channelaka TV Sky 370 and he is in the TOP 100 of the online Reverbnation.com Hip Hop Charts for London (UK).
Born in Luanda, Angola, OD moved to London in 1994 where he discovered his love for music and became a rapper.
He also was associated with chart-topping So Solid Crew.
In 2008, OD, a father of five, decided to move to Cornwall to start a new life. He set up a promotions company called Nuleaf Promotionz Ltd.
Earlier this year Oscar approached the studios to record a demo CD of his songs and walked out with a record publishing deal under the Alive Music Studios indie record label.
Mr Kobale, director and owner of the studios, said: "I am very pleased with Oscar Rodrigues, aka OD. He is a family man and talented artist. We are working hard to make his music heard by all, investing time and money in promoting him.
"Oscar is not just a friend, but a great artist and the Alive Music team is proud to have him on the record label. He has brought a breath of fresh music to the label. His music is original, meaningful and with reason.
"In particular a song called Real Money, which talks about leaving the streets and dirty money, instead working hard to make real money, clean money, rather than trying to make money from selling drugs and other bad things.
"He is an example to the young and old and wants to make a difference and reach people through his music."
OD's new song, My Town, is available for download as a single or ringtone on iTunes & Amazon and the video has been released on Channelaka TV. Buy Link http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/my-town-single/id419982455
Mr Kobale said: "He is currently working on old and new songs to be released over the coming months, including a remix of one of Wiley's songs called Tweetback."
More recently OD in conjunction with Alive Music Studios, has just released his first album, a collection of recent music, previously performed live but unreleased. The album is called "Belly Of The Beast and can be purchased from iTunes and Amazon." Buy Link http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/belly-of-the-beast/id437341311
