1. Article 'Album of the Month'
He used to be just a musical enthusiast, but after Mahan TT recorded his debut album „Neurotic‟ in 2012 his huge voice
began to be heard all over the UK. The teen sensation grew up in a small village in North Devon writing songs and performing
in village pubs and at small events. Little did TT know but this was his ladder to success, now he‟s being considered as the
next Adam Levine!
After he released the 2012 album his career exploded, with his first tour only 8 months down the line, he featured with
Rudimental and Latch, together it was considered to be the months most vivid and sensational tour of summer 2012. Mahan
TT says “the support and overall experience I had on that tour couldn‟t be put into words; I‟d laugh if someone told me a
few years ago I‟d be touring alongside rudimental and Latch, mind-blowing!” Mahan TT (19) had forever been dreaming of
becoming a star, even as a toddler he picked up a musical interest. He says “I must‟ve been about 4 years old when I broke
each string on my dad‟s guitar, I‟d like to think I‟ve improved since”. Mahan TT now can play 4 instruments outstandingly.
Shortly after TT finished his GCSE he started to take his musical talent to the next level, this is when he met his best friend
and musical coordinator Joe Sharp (Joey). 3 years after this moment the world was enlightened with the UK‟s most
downloaded debut album since „Adele- Someone like you‟.
The album includes all upbeat tracks, no slow emotional songs, just a party album for the perfect mood changer! The album
is even an extended version available with the acoustic versions for no extra price! Their chart breaking single “Make it
Happen” made and stayed at number 1 for an entire month over taking massive artists such as “Robbie Williams” and “Will I
am” to the top position. Robbie Williams says “if he‟s producing this at the age of 19 I can‟t even imagine the success of his
work in say 2 years‟ time! I have huge amounts of respect for this lad, hes a great young boy with heaps of potential.”
Not only has Mahan TT been touring alongside others but he was performing at both Leeds and V Festival last year and hopes
to do the same this year. As well as that he has been busy designing his own sock range! Helping his fans to keep on trend
with the sheik and stylish fashion he is so well observed for. By summer expect to see the limited range in River Island and
Selfridges and CO.!
Early this week we met TT and we got the privilege to ask him some questions of questions:
So TT, do you think you’ll working on a second album yet? Because were all eager to see what you’ve got in store for
TT; “I would be telling a lie if I told you that there isn‟t one coming up soon!”
Now, I’m sure every girl out there wouldn’t argue when I say you’re gorgeous! So are you going to upset us all and tell
us you have a girlfriend?
TT: “Well… I‟m not usually one for a serious relationship, but if you must know I think things are about to change, sorry!
Who knows what the near future has to hold!”
Want to elaborate as to who this lucky lady is?
TT: “A childhood friend, a fun and flirty girl, I‟m a lucky man!”
And finally TT, who do you look to for inspiration in your music?
TT: “I look to my parents and my good friend Harry, they‟ve all helped me in the previous years to inspire me with lyrics
that now bring back floods of memories and I can only thank them for that. When Harry and I went touring in 2008, every
day I would write down experience and things I had learnt. If I had to choose an artist it would be Lady Gaga, it seizes to
amaze me how one woman can have so much power and talent, she‟s incredible! I would be lucky to produce anything as
good as her within my career as a music artist!”
So it seems like Mahan TT is having way too much fun for our liking! Of course the gorgeous singer will be releasing his new
tour dates within the next month so be sure to keep an eye out! He will be going on tour in June this year, starting in
Newcastle and making his way down the country for the big finale at the O2 arena! Keep a look out
