PRESENTED BY JAMES MAAD

Criado en un entorno de músicos en el que las reuniones familiares consistían en Jam Sessions, no es de extrañar que Zelada desarrollara su talento de manera tan fructífera. En 2006 completa sus estudios musicales becado en el Liverpool Institute for Performing Artists, donde recibe de manos de Paul McCartney el reconocimiento a la mejor composición de su promoción. Se muda a Londres y con su banda termina ganándose una reputación en el circuito de directos que culmina con su teloneo a Amy Winehouse en Back to Black Tour. En 2011 lanza su single Breakfast in Spitafields que se convierte inmediatamente en un éxito nacional, siendo la canción más radiada de la BBC2 de ese año, sólo por detrás de Adele. Un año más tarde, publica el disco “High ceilings and Collar Bones” y su single The Blues Remain se convierte en Single de la Semana de iTunes y se incluye de nuevo en la Playlist A de BBC2.
En 2013 edita, previa campaña de crowdfunding, su EP Follow The River y expande fronteras más allá del territorio británico, recibiendo el European Border Breakers Award en el Eurosonic Fest en Holanda. Se mete en el estudio con el productor español Carlos Jean, dando como resultado Back On Track, su primer disco para el sello MUWOM editado a principios de 2015.

En 2017, Zelada presenta “Be Somebody”, su último trabajo de estudio. En este nuevo LP, Zelada destila composiciones clásicas de soul, blues y funk, combinando a la perfección diferentes estilos, con la influencia de los grupos de siempre.

Las canciones de este nuevo trabajo se acercan, a su vez, a la intimidad y las entrañas del artista, historias con una enorme carga emocional capaz de empatizar con todos los públicos.

Brought up in a musical environment of family jam sessions, it’s not surprising Zelada would develop his talents naturally. In 2006 he completes a musical scholarship at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts where he receives recognition for best songwriting from Sir Paul Mcartney himself. He then moves to London where he sets up a band earning a great reputation within the live circuit, including a support tour for Amy Winehouse on her Back to Black tour. In 2011, the self-released single “Breakfast in Spitalfields” becomes a national success, becoming the most aired song on BBC radio 2 only behind Adele. A year later, the album “High Ceilings & Collar bones” (Decca Records) is released, including the Itunes single of the week “The Blues Remain”, which is also included in the BBC2 A Playlist along with 3 other singles in that album.
In 2013, he begins a crowdfunding campaign to release the EP “Follow the river” (2013) which wins the “European Border Breaking Awards” at the Eurosonic Festival in Groningen, Holland, including a tour both in Netherlands and Spain. He begins 2014 traveling around South-America, On his return, he’s back in the studio with famous Spanish producer Carlos Jean to record the album “Back on Track” (2015), his first with the label MUWOM.

In 2017, he releases “Be somebody”, a new album under the new name “Zelada”. In this new album Zelada distills classical compositions of soul, blues and funk, combining them with different styles and the influence of timeless artists.

In this new album Zelada reflects on modern society with songs that speak about the uncertainties and insecurities of life. It sings about our daily and technological routines in the 21st century. The songs are also an opening into more personal and gutsy feelings of his stories with emotional intent to empathize with all audiences.
