Mullally is the first artist confirmed to perform at the UMAs 2018

Singer-songwriter Mullally is the first artist confirmed to perform at the Unsigned Music Awards (UMAs) 2018.

The artist, who won Best Male Solo Act at the first ceremony back in 2016, will be bringing his talent to the Brighton Centre on May 16. This year’s UMAs will officially kick off The Great Escape festival, which takes place on May 17-19.

Speaking about being asked to perform, Mullally said: “I’m so stoked, I don’t think I’ll sleep the night before, or even the week…”

Simon O’Kelly, CEO of UMA Music Group added: “On October 27, 2016, Mullally took to the stage as a brand new, unsigned artist at the first ever UMAs held at the Troxy Theatre in London, to collect his Award for Best Male. A few months later he signed a major deal with Atlantic Records and more recently, a publishing deal with Kobalt Music Publishing. It feels right to invite Mullally back to champion all that can be achieved following a win at the UMAs – his journey over the last year highlights the exciting potential, and we’re proud to have been a part of his journey.”

It’s safe to say that Mullally has enjoyed an incredible journey so far. His first three releases, ‘Overdose’, ‘Troubled Love’, and ‘Wonderful’, have amassed over six million streams on Spotify alone. The tracks have also been championed by the likes of Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra and MTV.

In terms of his music, Mullally has been busy grafting in the studio, working with some renowned producers including Gordon Mills (Ed Sheeran), Toby Scott (Little Mix), SOS Music (Ariana Grande) and Dan McDougall (The Wanted). Having now been signed to Atlantic Records UK, the singer-songwriter is working towards the release of his debut album.

Mullally has also been a regular on the live circuit. Alongside festival performances and sold out headline shows in LA and London, he has also supported the likes of Jess Glynne, Clean Bandit and Akala. He will be spending this summer on the road once more with slots at The Great Escape, Latitute and Reading & Leeds Festival.

This year’s UMAs will take place at Brighton Centre on May 16. Some of the nominees have already been announced, however, a full list is due to be released in the coming weeks.
