Notes to Editors
With a reputation built on his original style and refusal to hop on any industry bandwagon,Ty is best known for his lyrical frankness and honest portrayals of everyday life, setting him aside from many mainstream hip hop acts and allowing him complete artistic independence. This has led to the release of four successful albums over 5 years (Awkward, Upwards, Closer, Special Kind of Fool) and a Mercury Prize nomination, among many high profile plaudits.
Earlier this year, Ty, also known for his spoken word work, was asked to perform and host workshops for the British Council, which culminated in the conclusion of a 35 year halt on international performers in the Sudanese town of Port Sudan.
