Who is SBD?

“I’m SBD, an 18 year old artist from Manchester. At the age of 10 emceeing became a hobbie of mine, this later developing into a career choice. From the age of 13 to the present day, I’ve been making, living and breathing music. For 8 years I’ve crafted my art and learnt about the music industry, waiting for my chance to show what I’m about. I’m heavily influenced by my surroundings and experiences rather than other artistS, so I tend to listen to my own music the majority of the time.”

Sum up your sound in 3 words

Poetic, powerful and pure

My experiences and my environment.

What’s your definition of good music?

Good music is music that people can feel, whether it’s through the sound of the music or through the content

What is SBD upto at the moment?

I’m releasing a mixtape called TheSClass on the 31st December. I’ve recently been working hard alongside Dot Rotten, Ali Karim Burgaboy, Wrigz, Geko and many more, to create a collective of music that shows what I’m all about. Just before my mixtape drops I’m releasing a visual for Music Is, a song that will be on both my mixtape and my AAGM set!
