Recoverworld Artist Management (RAM)
Set up initially in partnership with another agency, RAM went solo in 2009 bringing with it two very different but equally exciting artists. The focus of RAM is artist development and we have the luxury of being able to do this through our direct link and the backing of the Recoverworld Label Group.
Our roster is small and our achievements impressive. With Senadee we have taken a talented singer songwriter who was introduced to us through a session vocal that he performed for one of our dance labels to someone who has appeared on over 250,000 sold compilations, a collaboration with Grammy award winning artist BT and a solo single deal with Paul Oakenfold's "Perfecto" label. Not to mention various credible collaborations that have scored numerous Radio 1 plays, stunning reviews and a legion of admirers from all over the world!
With Shoot the Dead, the band have gone from relative unknowns to a debut single, award winning video, Primal Scream support slot, runners up in a national "battle of the bands" competition where they saw off the best part of 100 of the UK's most talented artists and numerous reviews and tour dates. The band are currently working on their second single and relentless touring schedule.
Much has been said about Senadee, who with just a few well chosen dance productions under his belt has become one of the most sought after male vocalists and songwriters on the dance scene right now whilst simultaneously alluding to a far greater calling.
His vocal collaborations with artists such as Ben Gold, Thomas Datt and John Askew have featured on countless compilations including big hitters from Warner, Sony and Armada Music.
Bubbling under the surface, Senadee has been crafting his own unique brand of brooding pathos pop that touches the soul both lyrically and melodically and has led to his debut solo single being snapped up by Paul Oakenfold's "Perfecto" label.
Exciting collaborations are also in the pipeline including a track with BT for his forthcoming album and further production work for his own artist album set to surface in 2012.
Rising up organically through impromptu gigs in Brighton's thriving free party scene in 2010, four piece band Shoot the Dead create the kind of dance infused rock music that delivers both style and substance.
With their unique combination of frenetic rhythms, driving bass, searing guitar riffs and Andi's phenomenal vocals, they have produced a collection hook laden tunes, citing collective primary influences as diverse as the Beatles through to the Prodigy and Hendrix through to Orbital.
The band take their name from a line borrowed from horror maestro George Romero. "There's all these zombies coming out, covered in blood and someone shouts "shoot the dead" explains the band, who have equally embraced with relish their initials STD, referring to their fans as simply "carriers".
Ironically, with all this talk of zombies, Shoot the Dead are very much a live band delivering mesmerizing performances set against a backdrop of thought provoking visuals and eclectic songs that range from the sleazy title defying "Lullaby" through to the more aggressive and hi octane tunes such as "Weapon of Hate" and "Kill Machine Kill".
2011 is going to be a huge year for Shoot the Dead. With a studio session already under their belt and a bulging gig diary, the "carriers" want a debut single and the band are keen to deliver!
