Ten Tonnes

Artist Bio

TEN TONNES established himself as a hot tip over the past two years, consistently dropping impressive releases spanning his first Warner Bros. Records EP ‘Born To Lose’ through to the single ‘Better Than Me’His current track ‘Lucy’ has amplified the attention that his talent deserves. Premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World, it was then B-listed at Radio 1 and highlighted as Tune of the Week by both ScottMills and Ariel Free.

It adds to TEN TONNES’ burgeoning list of airplay which includes substantial support from Radio 1Beats 1 (Elton John and Matt Wilkinson), Radio 2 (A list), Radio XVirgin and 6 Music. His highest profile TV appearance came with an interview and performance on Sunday Brunch.

That surge of support makes now the ideal time for TEN TONNES – AKA Ethan Barnett – to fulfil a lifelong personal ambition to release his self-titled debut album, which is out now via Warner Bros. Records. It’s a set that lives up to the potential that saw him tipped in YouTube’s Ones To Watch 2019 playlist as well as Radio X’s Great X-Pectations list of the best new music, artists and bands for 2019.

TEN TONNES recorded the album with producers Hugo White (previously of The Maccabees) and Dan Grech (Wolf AliceThe KillersLiamGallagher). The pair maximised his potential with two different approaches which yielded a cohesive, free-flowing set of songs with the driving energy of TEN TONNES’ live shows. White encouraged him to capture one-take live performances with backing from Maccabees’ duo Rupert Shepherd (bass) and Sam Doyle (drums). Meanwhile, Grech focused on making each part TEN TONNES recorded (vocals, guitar, bass, keys) as tight as he possibly could.

The album also features co-writes with Crispin Hunt (Florence + The Machine, Jake Bugg, Lana Del Rey) and Luke Potashnick (Charlie Puth, James Blunt).
