Twelve24 is a Manchester, UK based trio who have been touring schools, local venues and larger arenas for the last 5 years. Their sound is a fusion of feel-good Pop and euphoric dance mixed with a mixture of technical rap and their multi-cultural styles. Twelve24 were all raised in 3 different countries. Ryan from America, Christina from Ghana and Josh from their base town, Manchester. From three unique countries with three unique stories, Twelve24 make music with a message and desire to make a difference in their generation!
Their music is entirely written by themselves, lyrically and melodically, and they also have a heavy hand in the beat production. Their music is not only catchy and "feel-good" but also carries their real life stories and a positive, inspiring message influenced by going into High Schools performing their music and telling their life stories in the hopes to inspire young people. The band describe their sound in relation to artists such as Macklemore for his deep lyrical content and independence, Calvin Harris for his euphoric dance style tracks, mixed with their strange love for catchy Pop music. Twelve24 really have a unique sound!
For the last 6 years they have travelled all over the world. They have been to America, Norway, Sweden, Finland, France, Denmark, Lithuania, Slovakia, South Africa, and all over the UK.
They ended 2014 with a bang by releasing their brand new Single called Higher which many have commented as 'their best yet.' Higher Features Deronda K. Lewis, an American Gospel singer with an amazing voice. The band grew up watching and listening to her in her old band The World Wide Message Tribe. The colorful, energetic music video won MTV’s Freshmen competition on their University channel MTVU and was played on full rotation for 6 weeks! Higher was later picked up MTV Latin America, MTV Hits, California Music Channel and many more. Following the success of Higher, The Message Trust, who formed Twelve24 in the first place, are embarking on their biggest schools Tour in over a decade; it’s called The Higher Tour. The vision for The Higher Tour will be a few different bands including Twelve24 going into 50 High schools in a region finishing with a huge concert at the local arena or large venue.
