Since exploding out of the Two Bright Lakes community as one half of Oscar + Martin in 2010, Oscar has received international acclaim for his refreshingly spacious productions, buoyant performances, and a sumptuous voice that harkens back to a classic lineage of heart-on-sleeve r ‘n’ b frontmen.
Bringing in 2013 with perhaps his biggest breakthrough yet, Oscar Key Sung was handpicked by Mercury Music Prize-nominated mc Ghostpoet and Brooklyn-based artist MeLo-X to produce their debut release as MELOGHOST, ‘WecanWORKitout’. Quickly receiving over 44,000 plays and with further collaborations in the pipeline, Oscar’s latest single ‘WIMLTM’ recently clocked 20,000 plays with no associated promotional backing or performances.
Now receiving further spins and the tastemaking praise of BBC Radio 6 programmer Gilles Peterson, Oscar Key Sung has brought his startling story to the international stage with two promotional singles ‘It’s Coming’ and ‘Sure Thing’. His latest single ‘All I Could Do’ has clocked over 100k listens on Soundcloud and been remixed by Naysayer and Gilsun.
