Metropolis Music Presents: A2
A2 is British rapper/songwriter/producer Wesley Bishop, whose work incorporates electronica, R&B, and hip-hop. Bishop was raised in Croydon, England by a mother who encouraged his and his sisters' musical interests. He learned the piano as a child and was later drawn to London rap and grime like So Solid, Dot Rotten, and Danny Weed. Preferring a more laid-back and textured style than he was necessarily listening to, he honed his songwriting, engineering, and producing skills, and his sound, and began to gain attention in the mid-2010s with a number of uploaded singles and EPs. Krept & Konan did a version of his song "Flowers x Patron" in 2015, and the same year A2 was featured on the Etta Bond and Raf Riley track "Never Did." In the meantime, he worked on finishing his debut LP, Blue.
Since the release of Blue, A2 has gone on to new heights with EP’s Purple, All Spill and Just So You Know. Cementing his own lane in British songwriting history as one of the best ‘alternative’ artists. With multiple sold out shows, it is only a matter of time before A2 reaches the next level of stardom.
