Yes, it’s only the start of the week but let’s look forward to the weekend already because the support acts have been announced for Stevie Wonder at British Summer Time Hyde Park this Saturday 6th July, and it’s a smart line-up of great talent!
First up is Joel Culpepper, is a London born R&B artist with a style inspired by British fashion and modern culture. His unforgettable voice compliments and contributes to the impact of his exceptional live shows. Culpepper’s song writing ranges from mostly ballads to evoking elements of psychedelia and hip hop.
Benedict Cork released his first EP ‘Piano Tapes’ over the summer of 2018, a completely live performance of 5 tracks recorded at Red Gate Recorders in LA. His first release of 2019 was ‘Therapy,’ a sweeping piano ballad with themes of mental health and self love. This was followed by ‘Fear Of Lonely’, written during Benedict’s time living in Stockholm, Sweden about the loneliness of moving to a new country after a break-up, and ‘Funny How Things Change,’ which explores the passing of time after a relationship ends and the distance this can create between two people. Most recently, Benedict supported Brit Award winner Tom Walker and Grammy nominated Emily King and co-wrote Adam Lambert’s single ‘Feel Something’ which Rolling Stone called “an achingly yearning ballad.” He returns with his fourth single of 2019 ‘Breaking Hearts,’ which focuses on the guilt and regret of breaking the heart of someone you thought you loved.
Four of Diamonds are bringing their vibrant positivity to BST this July with empowering, lively and fun music. The four girls first met in the thirteenth series of the X factor after they were placed together as a group. Their punchy, euphoric sound steps away from the girl bands that have preceded them.
