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.
2019 proved to be another very active year for the high-flying creative. Unfortunately the current unprecedented global response to Covid-19/Corona has affected 2020 plans including cancelling of shows and several festival bookings that were already secured for the first half of the year. However in anticipation of UK lockdown being lifted in the second half of the year SILVASTONE looks forward to being on stage again soon. Meantime he is keeping active on his socials including impromptu online live performances, production sessions, etc., and will soon be rolling out his exciting new music project plus announcing a follow-up album alongside some exciting new partnerships.
