Crafted by himself, Mayday hails from Birmingham. Mayday had been listening to grime from 10 years old and hadn’t started writing lyrics until a decade later when he turned 20. Taking inspiration from garage mixes his mother use to play infusing them with grime, that evolved from garage he found in his early years, Mayday harnesses elements of both to craft his music.
Using music helps Mayday to articulate his life, he articulates what he lives and weaves stories with such intricacy akin to painting a picture. The tropes of grime music are rarely covered in his music as he aims to deliver tales from a personal perspective. Mayday is slowly carving out his own lane in the grime scene, one that is inspired by many but not easily imitated.
Starting to write lyrics in mid-2016, his style has taken shape as an artist who brings energy with a playful flair. With influences ranging far and wide the compilation of genres make Mayday an artist that is fuelled by a passion that matches his relentless ethic of self improvement.
