Example is a 27 year old singer/rapper from London who`s real name is Elliot John Gleave. Influenced by rappers like the Wu Tang Clan and Snoop Dogg, he started to rap himself.  He won several rap battles, but decided to concentrate on his study of film directing.

After he lived a year in Australia, he came back to London and concentrated on his music. He got support bei Radio 1 and is signed on Mike Skinner`s (The Streets)  label The Beat now.  Example describes his music himself as “an up-tempo electro garage rap mash-up”. His music is also pop and electro influenced, which you can hear on his new single “Watch the sun come up”.  His new album “Won`t Go Quietly” is scheduled for January 2010. Here is the part-animated video for the new single, which is out in September:
