Watch List: Midé Encourages That 'The Only Way Is Up'
U.K. indie/soul singer Midé caught our attention mid-way through last year with the easy appeal of his thoughtful and heartfelt acoustic soul stylings, his fluent guitar work and the warmly sensitive soul of his voice marking him out as one to watch. Making good on such musical promise in 2014, Midé channeled a more fleshed out soul, jazz, r&b and folk influenced sound on his debut 'E.G.' album, his music going on to draw critical acclaim from the likes of MTV, BBC 1 Xtra, SBTV, MOBO Awards and Alt Sounds.
With 2014 also having seen him play to sold out crowds as part of a national tour in collaboration with ILUVLIVE, the year comes to a close with Midé looking forward to early next year for both the release of a 4-track EP and a headlining show at the renowned Shaw Theatre. In anticipation, he has just released his new track, 'The Only Way Is Up', with galloping drums and an expressive guitar driving an uplifting, galvanizing energy that emphatically embodies the message that the emotive soul of Midé's voice encourages for the listener, 'when you break down, don't ever give in/ 'cos you know when it comes down to it...the only way is up'.
