Unsigned Music Awards 2016 Nominees Brother Zulu is led by Lawrence Ajadi and Max Tuohy, two musicians with distinctively different musical backgrounds. Max, previously signed to RCA records at the age of 16, has already performed alongside the likes of Jason Mraz, Dizzee Rascal, Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Ellie Goulding and Eliza Doolittle, as well as supporting Diana Vickers on her UK Tour. Lawrence on the other hand, a jazz pianist and classically trained flautist who’s played under the likes of Robert Glasper and Riaan Vosloo, is currently balancing producing and performing music with a Physics degree at Imperial College London. The merging of these creative minds creates the one-of-kind dynamic Brother Zulu will be famous for.
With the release of “Three Easy Pieces”, Brother Zulu is just getting started. Eager to explore as many corners of the musical universe as possible, future releases covering everything from grime to funk are in the works, and collaborations with some of the most exciting up and coming talent, such as Zoe Kypri will be flowing out regularly. Furthermore, electric live shows featuring the other members of Brother Zulu (the incredibly talented musicians bassist Noah Nelson, drummer Yousef Abdelkhalek and guitarist Alex Hillman) will be erupting all over Europe.
