Born in London to parents from Ghana and Sierra Leone he describes his music as, “a creative hybrid of African Beats and UK Street Sounds marinated in Global Melodies”. The multi-talented SILVASTONE has been making noise on the scene since 2015 when he first broke through after earning his stripes in previous years as a producer and songwriter for some of Africa’s and UK’s biggest talents and hit records.
The hardworking creative has spent much of the last 12 months promoting his third independently released EP, “Affirmation“, which has been very well received worldwide.

The popular Croydon resident is also proudly very active in his local community.

In response to this (and his continued successes in the music industry) the London Borough Of Croydon officiated him one of their youth ambassadors and engage him in several initiatives and seek his counsel on decisions relating to music and the arts.
After a very active 2019 that proved to be another very productive year for the high-flying creative. Unfortunately the current unprecedented global response to Covid-19/Coronavirus affected 2020 plans including cancellations of several festival bookings and shows across the year. He performed at several virtual festivals and festivals during the summer for brands like YouTubeMUSIC, Soundcity, MTV Base, etc. and in the later quarter of the year commenced the roll-out of his much anticipated upcoming fourth project – Evolution. Considering the uncertainties and difficulties of promoting music its lead single, “Falling For You“, exceeded expectations across the board – including national and international radio airplay, editorial playlists, blog publications, etc. He followed this with current single “Feeling Your Melody” – a banging anthem that on this occasion fused Afrobeats with UK Garage. The release is a collaboration alongside DJ Masterstepz (whose UKG classic “Melody” is sampled on the track) and has equally enjoyed huge radio, streaming and worldwide support nationally and worldwide. It is also now available with a remix from the legendary UKG DJ/producer, Sticky. A prelude to this track is the sensual Afrobeats and R&B fusion entitled “Feeling” also out now. The 9 track ‘Evolution’ is out this quarter of 2021. Stay tuned!
