After a rollercoaster couple of years The Truth and his live band The Elements are ready to release their first EP and best of all it is FREE!!
The Elements are an exotic cocktail of cultures and sounds, the kind of cocktail with little bright umbrellas and sparklers twinkling from the edge of the glass.
Take one London rapper who calls himself The Truth, squeeze a dash of backing vocalist Mehi classically trained in traditional Hindi & Punjabi, chop up a bit of Bobby Wonda keyboards and his ear crunching dub bass, mix with experienced guitarist Ricky, shake vigorously with the majestic hands of Portuguese bass player Rui, then pour smoothly to the rhythm of Jamaican born drummer Marley and dhol playerDav. That 10 Euro summer holiday concoction will give you The Elements.
The Truth and The Elements have taken the live music scene by storm recently having featured on BBC Introducing, play-listed on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6, BBC Asian Network and have played at renowned venues and festivals such as Wembley Stadium, Glastonbury 2011, BBC Maida Vale, Victoria Park Olympics 2012, as well as winning Best Urban Act at Brit AsiaAwards 2011 and nominated again in 2012 for Best Urban and Best Live Band. All this has been achieved in the space of 2 years.
