British newcomer Mike Hough has been drumming quite the buzz since stepping out on the music scene earlier this year.
Aged just 19, the Essex bred singer’s brand of Soul-Pop has caught the attention of many including BBC 1 Xtra, and more recently Global Music Publishing – where he signed a lucrative publishing deal last month. The move will see Hough join the likes of Corrine Baley Rae on the GMP roster as he records his debut album with some of the biggest names in music.
Though the LP isn’t due in stores until early next year, be ahead of the curve and get into this great talent. You’ll, no doubt, be seeing and hearing a lot more from him in the months and year coming!

For months, speculation has been rife that soulful singer Fantasia is with child. Beyond a simple celebrity pregnancy, the 26 year old’s pregnancy would carry with it much controversy, given reports that the father was supposedly Antwaun Cook.
Many will remember Cook as the married man who hid his relationship status with his wife from the American Idol alum, arguably serving as the cause of her suicide attempt last summer.
Well, if you thought the ‘Bittersweet’ singer’s story was already complex, her “special announcement” yesterday at a Jacksonville show will raise more than a few eyebrows.
As previously reported, R&B diva Brandy is just one on a growing list of singers set to mentor on the upcoming reality talent show ‘Majors & Minors’. Now, reports have surfaced that list will include chart-toppers Leona Lewis, Sean Kingston, and Avril Lavigne. The announcement joins previous reports that indicated pop singers Adam Lambert and Colbie Caillat were already tapped to advise on the new talent show.
The show’s concept is based on ‘Majors’ (established acts) acting as mentors for ‘Minors’ (contestants aged 8-16) on their quest for musical stardom. The brainchild of songwriter Evan Bogart (who boasts Beyonce‘s ‘Halo’ and Rihanna‘s ‘SOS’ to his credits), the show is set to debut September 23, 2011.
