20-year-old, Nottingham-born, Leicester-raised and now London based singer/songwriter Kieran Alleyne got his first taste of stage life at the age of 13 starring in Thriller Live, the West End theatre production dedicated to the life and music of one of his musical idols, Michael Jackson. During this time he began uploading covers of his favourite songs to YouTube, which soon caught the eye of Max Gousse (once A&R for Beyoncé) and his newly launched Artistry Ent label who quickly snapped up the burgeoning star and began developing his talents.
In April, Kieran released his debut EP Breaking Good, which included ‘Running Low’ (strongly supported by BBC Radio 1Xtra and MistaJam) and ‘Comfortable’, which spawned a remix featuring rising underground talent Bonkaz and rapper/actress Paigey Cakey. With his new single, he has the charts firmly in his sight; linking up with producer of the moment DJ Mustard for ‘Be Around’.
Its accompanying clip, directed by Erik White (Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Cassie), features Kieran trying to win the heart of his lady love.
‘Be Around’ will be released on July 5.
