Rap artist SAV is set to release his brand new track this summer.

Stephen Ashcroft, who has had a passion for music from a young age, has created a new track which surrounds his return to the music scene along with his drive and ambition to succeed.

The singer who was born in Preston says his main inspiration came from buying Eminem CD’s which motivated him to create his own lyrics, along with enjoying poetry in English lessons, helping him to easily express himself.

When he first started secondary school, SAV took an interest in a rap battle website, which granted him experience as he moved up the ranks to become a veteran on the website.

He then started to create his own unique sound and would regularly sell his own mix tapes on the streets of Manchester every Saturday, helping him to establish a following and good connections within the music business.

His official song ‘Teach You To Fly’ received a lot of radio play, including BBC Radio Manchester, and an official music video was produced, both of which can be found on iTunes and Spotify.

After this, SAV took a break to focus on his family life when his son was born, however this year he makes a comeback with the official release of his new song, which is yet to be revealed.

He is not currently signed to a record label, however regularly releases new exciting tracks through his YouTube channel, iTunes, Soundcloud and Facebook.

Stephanie Sears, his manager, said: “As his manager I feel like this is the perfect time to make a comeback with all his passion and past experiences creating amazing new tracks, we will be just in time with his next official song for a great summer hit, which will be available on iTunes and Spotify.

“We are really excited and enthusiastic about this new venture and hope he can gain lots of local support.”

The new track will be ready for radio play this summer.
