Born & raised in West London, English/ Jamaican dancehall singer/songwriter and producer Culan introduces his first official release ‘Easy to Love’.
Growing up in a musical family, his uncles built a fierce reputation on the UK sound system circuit; Culan would follow in their footsteps from the age of 16, going on to work with some of the genre’s heavyweights in Beenie Man and Gappy Ranks as well as vocal work on Wretch 32’s single ‘All a Dream’.
All the while Culan would continue his presence on the sound system scene, performing regularly at the Rampage stage at Notting Hill Carnival. His love and participation in the culture would in turn lead him to meet and work with a number of the most important urban producers in London in the form of Mo Keyz (Ariana Grande, Wretch 32), Kz (Stefflon Don, Kojey Radical) and Josh Thompson (Rita Ora) among others.
It was only this year however, that Culan released an original dancehall rewrite to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’, which quickly raced to over 5M views in 4 weeks and receive organic radio support across Kiss FM, Capital Xtra and BBC 1Xtra.
Culan now ones with his debut release as a solo artist in ‘Easy to Love’. With musical influences growing up including the likes of Bob Marley, Supercat and Mavado, it’s clear that the dancehall influences run true, however influenced subtly by modern touches adding to Culan’s natural hit-making sensibility. Speaking on the track, Culan states: “Guys always have questions and doubts about the women we try to love, but this track is about finding that girl who is everything you imagined. It makes her easy to love.”
