Hailing from the rural outskirts of Nottingham, Ady Suleiman surpassed the expectations of any small town dreams quite some time ago. This summer alone saw him play to huge audiences at Glastonbury, V Festival and sell out London’s Oslo back in July, as well as just returning back from his biggest UK headline tour to date. Going from strength to strength, Ady has garnered a reputation as a talented songwriter and lyricist, and an owner of a pair of pipes you won’t want to press pause on.
It’s Ady’s infectious soul delivered in a seemingly effortless manner that has got us all hooked. Able to pump out slow and expressive songs that rule the heartstrings as well uplifting reggae numbers (and both, simultaneously), Ady brings to the table a style of music that that not many have pulled off since his musical inspiration Amy Winehouse was delivering soul and blues to the mainstream a decade ago.
Talking on all manner of things from Jimi Hendrix to his 21st birthday, we caught up with Ady in his South London rehearsal space inbetween vocal jamming and guitar tuning with is band. Despite being aware of his gift, Ady remains humble when we ask the big question of where he see’s himself in the future. You can watch our full encounter with Ady himself above, and you can check out Ady’s latest track release ‘Wait For You’ available of Pemba Records/Sony Music below:
