After taking his bedroom recordings to the next level with a full band in Jonquil, Oxford-based Hugo Manuel went back to recording as a solo artist under the name Chad Valley. Jonquil signed to Dovecote Records in the States and, around the same time, Manuel leaked a handful of dreamy, Ibiza and R&B-inspired electro-pop demos to the Web. A flock of sites (including Vice, Pitchfork, and Guardian) featured Chad Valley's "Up and Down" and "Acker Bilk" in the summer of 2010. Manuel continued to play with Jonquil, and debuted his self-titled EP later that year. In 2011, Chad Valley released Equatorial Ultravox, and then branched out with 2012's Young Hunger, which featured a long list of indie A-list collaborators including Twin Shadow, Glasser, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and Active Child. His sophomore album will be released in October 2015.
Vibrating rooms all throughout the Philadelphia music scene, tiedye’s dynamic and natural sounding music accompanied by his modest charm, embark on a warm and colorful journey that has only just begun for this fresh sound bender.
