Since the early 2000s, the British singer, songwriter, and guitarist Rhodes has been mesmerizing audiences with the emotionally engaging and enveloping soundscapes that he creates.
Rhodes, who was born and raised in London, started performing music at an early age and eventually learned to play the guitar as well as the piano. In the 2010s, he released his first extended play (EP) titled “Raise Your Love” which comprised tunes inspired by indie rock as well as folk music. This was the beginning of his rise to fame in the UK.
The year 2014 saw the release of Rhodes’ first studio album, titled “Wishes.” Music critics liked the album a lot, and it helped Rhodes become known as a rising star in the music business.
The album included the smash singles “Turning Back Around” and “Your Soul” both of which had considerable radio play and served to consolidate Rhodes’ status as a top performer in the UK music industry. In addition, the album contained a number of other songs that were successful.
Rhodes has continued to travel globally ever since the success of his song “Wishes,” giving performances at festivals and venues all over the globe. His second album, titled “Sleep Is a Rose” was published in 2017, and it further demonstrated his capacity to create music that is contemplative and emotionally charged.
The album includes the breakthrough songs “Let It All Go” and “Close Your Eyes,” both of which got considerable radio play and served to solidify Rhodes’ image as a skilled and varied performer. “Close Your Eyes” was Rhodes’ first hit record, and “Let It All Go” was his second.
Rhodes is well-known not only for his successful career as a musician but also for the charity work he does and the activism he takes part in. He has used his position to speak out against problems pertaining to social justice, and the earnings from his performances have been given to a wide variety of charities and organizations.
His unwavering dedication to using his work to help people has not only won him the love of his audience but also made him a force for good in the field.
Rhodes went through a phase in his life in which he was afraid he was going to lose someone important to him. As a result of this fear, he was inspired to create the song “Good To You,” in which he essentially admits that he is the cause of the issue and that he is the one who needs to make changes.
He played on the concept that, without this one individual, he would be absolutely nothing and no one, and he did this by making jokes about it. This song was written by him, his partner, who was the person he dreaded losing the most, and his close friend Steven Weston. They all collaborated on it.
This is one of the most upbeat and joyful songs on the album, and it features Rhodes’ bright and forceful vocals, along with appealing melodies and lyrics that pack a punch.
Throughout the course of his career, Rhodes has been honoured with a plethora of honours and trophies, one of which is the Critics’ Choice Award at the Brit Awards in the year 2015.
He has also been acknowledged for his creativity and innovation in the music business, which has led to him being nominated for a number of accolades (including the Mercury Prize) and receiving recognition from industry experts and music journalists.
Fans of this exceptional artist may anticipate that in the future they will see even more of this artist’s work. Rhodes will undoubtedly continue to make waves in the business for many years to come as a result of his unique fusion of indie rock and folk, as well as his capacity to produce music that is both emotional and self-reflective.
