Born in Bristol in the late 80s and following that with a stint in Chicago, Commons returned to England set on a music career studying at Goldsmiths in London, notorious for its host of luminary alumni. Commons released The Baron EP in 2011 followed by his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope debut Rumble And Sway EP in 2013 showcasing his whiskey-laced growl.
Commons’ workmanlike approach has been fed further by the work he’s doing for others. Among his successes, he co-wrote Lewis Capaldi’s current hit “Hold Me While You Wait, as well as the hits “Jungle” & “Low Life” for X Ambassadors with Alex Da Kid and Sam Harris, and toured with the band. He also had a Beats by Dre ad, and was featured on Eminem’s ‘MMLP2’ album. Commons won Music Week’s Sync Artist Of The Year in 2016. This past year Commons composed the music for the summer blockbuster “Skyscraper” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. These experiences opened his ears to a spectrum of genres, making him more interested in the path pop music is taking.
The KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records artist most recently released the video for his current single “Won’t Let Go”. “Won’t Let Go” follows the release of “Paper Dreams”. This new music showcases a new direction for the musician that is heavily influenced by 80s pop. Still evident is Commons’ bluesy-rock sensibility, as showcased in his previous releases “Rumble And Sway” and “Lead Me Home”, with a hint of what’s to come.
