A singer, rapper, songwriter and producer, Unique Hastings is a multi-talented artist with music in his veins. His father owned a recording studio and his mother taught him to sing. On top of this, both his grandparents were musicians.
All this spurred him to follow his passions as a musician. He has since been involved in a number of exciting projects, producing music for a Virgin Media digital campaign as well as collaborating with Chris Brown for a remix of the r&b artist’s single ‘Run it’. His touring meanwhile has taking him all over the world, playing acclaimed venues such as the O2 Arena in London and Apollo Theater in New York, supporting names as big as Ludacris and De La Soul.
Unique Hastings is likely to appeal to fans of Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake and Seal, combining their collective pop appeal, whilst also channelling his own distinct smoky vocal tone and stylistic diversity.
On top of his musical endeavours, the singer has also co-starred in an award-winning short film titled ‘Shantell Town’, the soundtrack of which he also co-produced.
The artist has another exciting single on the way titled ‘Gimme All Ur Luvin’, plus a full-length album titled The Heart of A Dreamer set to drop in 2017.
‘Skip the Talking’ is out 30th September
