‘Luminous’ is the brilliant forthcoming EP from rising star Draper and is due for release on 13th January 2017 on M:UK.
It features six stand out tracks, ‘Want You More’, ‘Jealous’, ‘I.O.U’, ‘Reaction’, ‘Heartbeat Close’ and ’Who Are You’ that are not only musically adept but also showcase Draper’s talent for sourcing seriously gifted vocalists.
‘Jealous’, is the current single to be taken from the EP. It features the hotly tipped singer BB Diamond who has collaborated with the likes of Katy B, Ella Henderson and Jess Glynne. It’s a big, beautiful slice of pop tinged electronica offset by BB ‘s super soulful vocals.
Kent’s finest export, Draper, has already made a name for himself as a prolific and sought after producer and collaborator who has penned tracks for a number of big names including Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, All Saints and Twin Atlantic. He also wrote and produced breakthrough artist Lapsley’s 2016 BBC Sound Poll shortlisted hit single ‘Falling Short’.
Early 2016 saw Draper turning his sights back on his solo work. ‘Break Over You’, a collaboration with Prides, was met with critical and commercial acclaim with the track reaching over 1.5 million Spotify plays.
The first release from the ‘Luminous’ EP, ‘Want You More’, for which Draper teamed up with former Black Butter Records artist and Pharrell touted singer Sam Sure, was met with accolades across the board.
Live, Draper delivers an exciting and energizing show which has led to an impressive resume of live appearances including a successful summer of festivals in 2016 that galvanised in overwhelming radio support from BBC Introducing,
Draper’s presence as an artist is set to rocket in 2017, kicking off with the release of the ‘Luminous’ EP in January. Pre-order here.
