Rising star Phoebe Austin could not have expected the interest surrounding the making of her first official video in Sudbury, Suffolk, UK. Even though Phoebe has long been the talk of her region, recently things for her have taken another upward turn with her signing to Shlepp Entertainment and working with Stevie Eagle E signalling her career taking off even more. Phoebe recently won her first musical and artistic award winning the best newcomer gong at the IAA awards in the UK. This singing and songwriting child prodigy at only 13 years of age carries the weight of expectation for a whole region of the UK wanting to see one of their own rise to the top and so far she is not letting anyone down. Reaction to a callout for her first video has broken many records for agents and organizations involved with tens of thousands of impressions and hundreds of children applying to be a part of Phoebe Austin’s debut video ‘Thinking’.
Breaking the UK musical market coming from another country is a tough ask. No Asian artists have been able to succeed at this so far although some have got close. Leslie Loh made the top of the Music Week charts with a track, Boom Bang Bang in August 2003 produced by [Stevie] Eagle E and Doc B. That was the first and only Chinese artist to make the top of any chart in the West and since then no has come close. Now Master Opera Singer Jane Maria feels it is her time to make history and attack the British Charts with her mixture of Classical opera and (sometimes) other genres.
Eco-friendly and High Fashion do not usually go together. Eco-friendly and sexy rarely go together unless you are talking about going completely nude, and let’s face it, not many people are that sexy when completely nude. It is often the clothes however much or how little we wear and how we wear them that defines that tag sexy on a person. That or their internal vibe extending outwards and being felt by others. Enter Agnes Szepligeti of Luxuria a Hungarian designer who is turning that all on its head with her eco-friendly high fashion designs. Agnes Szepligeti showcased her amazing designs at the Shlepp Entertainment G Salvatore Fashion showcase in Wales and completely blew the audience away with her designs.
Almost everyone that catches a glimpse of Gianni Salvatore’s new collection reacts in the same way, with awe. G Salvatore’s fashion makes you feel good. In an age when people are working so hard on their bodies the demand for clothes to highlight that work is more and more prevalent. Not all designers though have mastered the art of making the clothes fit the way we imagine them, but Gianni Salvatore has. If you ask him he will tell you ‘I design everything from the heart. I want people to feel great when they are in my clothes, not just ok, not just good, they must feel great or I feel I have failed’.
Head of Shlepp Entertainment Stevie Eagle E has confirmed that he will be working on a musical project with Norwegian singing star Beate Jacobsen this year. Stevie Eagle E and Beate Jacobsen met for the first time at the G Salvatore Showcase event in the UK and the two immediately hit it off.

Anyone who has had to stand on a stage and perform can testify to how nerve racking this experience can be at the best of times. This experience has been known to break many a person. So you can imagine how much harder it must be for an autistic person who has a difficulty dealing with large numbers of people in everyday life. Prince Bayo known as the ‘autistic Prince’ has to deal with Autism and ADHD. He has been battling with this his entire life and when he has to perform or be around crowds his anxiety levels can go over the top. As he puts it. ‘It takes only one thing to not go according to the plan in my head and I am all over the place.’
