Artist Profile
Labrinth

Timothy Lee McKenzie (born 4 January 1989), better known by his stage name Labrinth, is a British musician, singer, songwriter, rapper and record producer.

Born and raised in Hackney, London and is of Jamaican and Canadian descent. He comes from a family of musicians consisting of nine siblings, and grew up at home surrounded almost exclusively by the sound of American gospel music. When they were younger, he and his eight siblings formed a band called Mac 9. He attended Stoke Newington School and began to pursue a musical career during his school years. His brother, Mac (who also goes by the name mac1), is a producer, and introduced Labrinth to the art of creating music in his studio at the age of 15.

Initially he began professionally as a producer, but Simon Cowell signed him to his record label Syco Music as a solo act. In the process, Labrinth became Cowell's first non-talent show signing in six years.

Labrinth made his debut appearance on the UK Singles Chart in March 2010, when his collaboration with English rapper Tinie Tempah, "Pass Out", reached number one. McKenzie has collaborated with Tinie Tempah on numerous occasions since.

Labrinth's first solo single, "Let the Sun Shine" was released in September 2010, reaching number three in the UK. His debut album Electronic Earth, was released on 31 March 2012, having been preceded by the singles "Earthquake", featuring Tinie Tempah (#2) and "Last Time" (#4). He achieved his first number-one single in November 2012 with "Beneath Your Beautiful", featuring Emeli Sande.

In 2018, Labrinth created the supergroup LSD along with Australian singer- songwriter Sia, and American DJ and producer Diplo. They released a series of singles "Genius" "Audio" "Thunderclouds" and "Mountains".

Imagination & the Misfit Kid is the second studio album by English singer- songwriter Labrinth, released on 22 November 2019. The album was recorded in London and New York City and features guest vocals by Sia and Zendaya. So far it has spawned the singles "Misbehaving" "Miracle" "Mount Everest" and "All for Us"
