British R&B/Soul singer, Kadeem Tyrell, is making waves in the UK music scene. Born and raised in Battersea, Kadeem epitomises the alternative sound that is currently on the rise, described as soothing alternative soul & effortless R&B. Heavily influenced by A Tribe Called Quest, Aaliyah, Brandy & many more artists from the 90's era, Kadeem put pen to paper at the young age of 14, challenging his writing skills and seeing how far he could take his vocal ability.

Having been raised in the church community, it was inevitable that Kadeem's love for music would grow. His family is filled with plenty of musical talent. His Mother and Aunts were Gospel singers and his father a DJ, allowing Kadeem to be exposed to and influenced by all genres of music, including lovers rock, rare groove and other music of the 80's whilst growing up.

In 2015, Kadeem debuted his vocals by featuring on a track with East London producer Nat Brown 'Memories'. The track was heavily supported by DJ EZ and many more DJ's across the Garage scene. In 2016, Kadeem teamed up with Chelmsford Garage producer RYN and released a smooth 5 track EP titled 'Fooled', full of what has been described as 'Feel Good Music'. Aiming to establish his music amongst many of the greats, Kadeem has garnered a buzz and is being mentioned amongst some of London’s finest such as NAO, Sampha and MNEK.
