Promoter Presents
Hoodie Allen
With his own charming blend of pop and hip hop, rapper Hoodie Allen went from Internet favourite to charting artist with the release of his 2012 EP All American.
 
Born Steven Markowitz and raised on Long Island, Hoodie first started releasing music while attending the University of Pennsylvania.  After winning MTV's Best Music on Campus Award in 2009, his first big hit came with the 2010 track "You Are Not a Robot," which sampled Marina and The Diamonds and landed on his popular mixtape Pep Rally. A headlining tour across the U.S. followed before Hoodie made his official debut with the All-American EP in 2012. Released on his own label, the EP debuted at number ten on Billboard's Top Albums and was followed in 2013 by mixtape such as ‘Crew Cuts’ and his debut full length album People Keep Talking.
 
Hoodie has gone on to collaborate with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Chance the Rapper, G-Eazy, Blackbear, and many more, making his independent success a rarity in the current music landscape.
 
Following his latest 2017 release The Hype, Hoodie is embarking on his 4th European tour with a lot of new music readying for release in 2019.
LOLO

Meet LOLO. The 28-year- old, Tennessee-bred singer that has traveled continents to find her place, only to find her voice where she had left it all along: home.

For the past 10 years, LOLO has been working to get to this point. To be heard.

At the age of 15, having endlessly pestered her parents about her desire to become a recording artist and songwriter, she successfully convinced her mother to move to Los Angeles. “I was writing every day non-stop,” she says. “Just to show them that I was dedicated. It was a huge risk.”

Forced to return to their hometown of Jackson, TN, LOLO’s mother left the young singer in L.A. to live with close friend Riley Keough and her mother, Lisa Marie Presley. At 18, LOLO landed a role in Broadway musical Spring Awakening, originating the rebellious character of Ilse. The role forced her to relocate to New York. “I had to play this bohemian chick that ran away,” she laughs. “I was like, well, that’s pretty true to life.”

In 2010 LOLO, then going by her given name Lauren Pritchard, once again uprooted her life for her craft, moving to London to accept a record deal from Universal/Island Records UK. Her debut album, Wasted In Jackson – a stunning collection of southern soul and heartbreak – met small commercial success but was critically praised with Rolling Stone declaring the album, all “big voice, big strings, big heartache.”

Unwavering in her desire to succeed, LOLO traveled back to the U.S., heading to Brooklyn, NY to experiment with different sounds, playing with an electronic approach but she still couldn’t quite find herself. Caught in a deep love/hate relationship with NYC and in need to be at the side of family going through health issues, she packed her bags hitting the road back to Tennessee.

Reveling in her roots back at home, LOLO discovered the voice she’d been dying to share: a technically daring and emotionally charged sound that evokes a hot southern night – rough around the edges but with a velvety quality that soothes the soul. Within this framework, she released her Comeback Queen EP, a release Pigeons & Planes said was “drenched in soul, enabling you to really feel every single word she utters,” and contributed the “terrific country score” (New York Times) for a successful and off-kilter off-Broadway adaptation of Checkov, ‘Songbird.’ Her album, In Loving Memory of When I Gave a Shit, is a come-to-Jesus moment for the songstress - a literal reflection of LOLO's journey, which paints the picture of a woman who is finally able to shine and be her true self.
