London born, Irish raised singer songwriter Maverick Sabre has his name ringing round the world right now and rightly so. Maverick Sabre has quickly established himself as having one of the most unique and soulful voices in the UK. First championed by BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra’s MistaJam as one of his “Ones to Watch for 2011”, and subsequently described by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens as the “male Amy Winehouse”, Maverick Sabre’s gritty yet soulful voice is drawing audiences in and leaving them hooked.

Maverick Sabre’s biggest UK headline tour follows the release of his gold certified debut album ‘Lonely Are The Brave’ which reached number 2 in the charts and features the top 20 singles ‘Let Me Go’, ‘I Need’ and ‘I Used To Have It All.’ Maverick Sabre also recently performed at this year’s V Festival.

Joining Maverick on tour is Ms Dynamite. The singer/songwriter/MC/rapper/producer and winner of the 2002 Mercury Prize burst back onto the scene last year with Labrinth produced single ‘NEVA SOFT’ and guested on Katy B’s huge club tune ‘Lights On’. Ms Dynamite has also recently collaborated with Magnetic Man, Redlight, Major Lazer and Shy FX. From the release of her ground-breaking debut A Little Deeper and 2005’s Judgement Days; Ms Dynamite is one of the most distinctive female voices in British music and the most successful female rapper the UK has ever produced.
