We’ve seen the likes of Iggy Azalea, John Newman and Ariana Grande being among the biggest new stars of 2013. Now that the year’s coming to end, set your eyes on Joel Compass, who you’ll be seeing more of in 2014.
He’s already been described as the UK’s answer to the Weeknd and has shown his songwriting abilities for the likes of Rita Ora and Girl Aloud‘s Nicola Roberts. This smooth fella that is eye-candy will be creating seductive-cool beats that will make you want to love him. Yes ladies, he’s making music for your ears.
Having been featured in the Metro, Contactmusic.com, PerezHilton.com and ThisIsFakeDIY, the 20 year old has seen his single ‘Run’ become a major hit on the airwaves. Setting his ambitions to sky heights, Compass hopes that his music would become top of people’s love-making playlist, as well as conquering the States and the world. You may judge him as a big-headed ‘understar’, as he’s signed to Island Def Jam. With a big record label behind him, you would think that he’ll become cocky — not so. After dealing with personal struggles within his family and his journey of self-discovery, the artist is very humble about his new found success. I mean, being snatched up by Black Butter Records, going on tour with Rudimental and now supporting J.Cole on his UK Tour…life doesn’t get sweeter than this.
Well for him, his highlights so far are just a tip of the sweet sensations that are about to come. Judging by Zane Lowe‘s ‘hot’ rating for music and his EP release of ‘Astronaut’, Joel Compass is experiencing the luxurious life. Not that of the controversial but more for his material.
Joel Compass’ EP ‘Astronaut’ is available now on free download. You can also purchase his hit single ‘Run’ too.
