Blizzard is a Manchester based grime musician and rising star of the UK underground scene. Originally associated with the Mayhem Crew before winning an EA competition that saw him record a professionally edited video that charted at number 1 on Channel U in 2005 when he was just 11, Blizzard followed up his debut success with a number of tracks that again charted on Channel U.
After a debut EP, Sooner Than Never, that made a big impact, Blizzard followed up with many more videos on the likes of SBTV and Don’t Flop that saw him exchanging lyrics in a battle against Mark Grist, an English teacher. He has now amassed 5 million YouTube views, emphasising his already considerable credentials, and has reached #18 in the iTunes album chart and #3 in the Hip-Hop charts with his music.
Not only is he a super skilled and original vocalist, but Blizzard has also found a talent in producing too. The multi-instrumentalist produced the ‘Soundbwoy Killer’ instrumental which was vocalled by grime maestro Wiley in 2011 and since then he has released a five track instrumental EP called ‘Talk Less’ , has picked up BBC Radio 1 and 1 Xtra props and also has his ‘We Love Grime part 2′ being listed on the station alongside RIO, C4 and Marger.
Blizzard then re-invented himself with 2014’s “Kids of the Night,” which saw him moving away from his battle rapping heritage to more daytime friendly version of himself. the tune was picked dup and played all over radio and live shows at Glastonbury, as well as gigs with Jessie-J, Naughty Boy, Emeli Sande and more all followed.
Early 2015 brought collaborations with R&B sensation Shakka for the melodic “You Came To Mine” and already the like of MistaJam have put it on heavy radio rotation as well as making it Jam Hot of the week.
On top of all this, Blizzard is also an ambassador for the very prominent Diannas anti-bullying trust that helps combat the issue that destroys so many lives in this country. Blizzard has been lorded as one of the greatest talents to come out of Manchester and is now getting the worldwide props he deserves.
