UK RnB/rap artist and professional footballer Liam Fontaine has released his debut single Life Lessons on all streaming platforms. The self-penned release features the Ross County defender turning his hand to music with a soulful song that’s sure to appeal to fans of Example, Eminem or Leon Bridges.
“Life Lessons is a song I wrote when I was going through some difficult issues both on and off the pitch following a long-term injury,” explains the rapper, singer, guitarist and sportsman. “It was during this time I came to the realisation that you can learn from everything that comes your way in life, no matter what aspect. In every situation there is a lesson to be learnt – no matter how painful or beautiful.”
With a varied and celebrated career at Fulham, Bristol City, Kilmarnock and Hibernian, Fontaine wanted to branch out and stretch his musical muscles outside of football. Influence by US hip-hop, UK guitar pop and classic soul music, Life Lessons shows that he’s more than ready to take on the musical competition off the pitch.
