2016 has been a vintage year for Shaun Escoffery; critical acclaim for his new studio album, ‘Evergreen’, a sell-out UK tour including London’s Union Chapel, performing at Wembley Arena as part of the World Cup ’66 Live anniversary celebrations, and the Children In Need Terry Wogan Special.
To round off the year, Escoffery has announced a concert at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 19th May, continuing this success into 2017.
Shaun takes his soulful voice to one of London’s most prestigious venues, where he’ll perform hits from ‘Evergreen’, including the first two singles ‘When The Love Is Gone’, ‘Love Shine Down’, which were both Record of the Week on BBC Radio 2. The title track from the album, a duet with Joss Stone, was also recently BBC Radio 2 A-listed.
Escoffery is fast becoming one of the great British soul voices of the moment.
Having been convinced to pursue a career in singing and acting by childhood friend Idris Elba, Shaun has embarked upon a diverse career which has included highlights such as being asked by boxer Lennox Lewis to perform the National Anthem ahead of his infamous fight with Mike Tyson in Memphis, singing “A House Is Not A Home” for Burt Bacharach at an all-star concert at the Royal Festival Hall which was broadcast on BBC Four, and also performing at BBC Radio 2’s Live In Hyde Park event in 2015.Go Back
