Following the release of the captivating Obsessedfeaturing the incredible vocal talents of ITV’s The Voice’s Clara Hurtado, CUB hits the ground running with new single Don’t Wanna Know, further highlighting the young producer’s continuous journey of growth as an artist.
Known as Billy Elson Farmer to his friends, CUB has matured with music engulfing his every thought. Starting off at the tender age of ten, CUB has since graduated with a BA in music production. It was here when he decided to start In A Box Records and the In A Box Project, a platform to support and provide resources to independent artists.
As a result, CUB has worked with artists such as FredrickLong and PleasureTrap, as well as writing songs for Brighton’s LIFT Music/BoostPublishing and HookersSongs. These endeavours have landed successful synch placements on major TV channels such as BTSport and BBC1.
Whilst it is clear that CUB is no stranger to the scene, he is the first to admit he is still in the early stages of his career, and continues to tirelessly work on developing his brand and industry connections whilst discovering his sonic identity.
Stepping one bit closer to his musical dream, but taking a slightly different direction to his last single, CUB releases Don’t Wanna Know on November 9th.
CUB started work on Don’t Wanna Know whilst he was at university and although he had an idea of how he wanted the chorus to sound, this ironically made the track harder to finish. This was no longer an experimentation but a single that needed to be heard. It wasn’t until Hurtado visited the studio for a writing session and added her vocal melodies to the song that Don’t Wanna Know was ready for release.
Speaking of the process, CUB explains,
“I wanted to follow Obsessed with something different, something to showcase my versatility and feel. I knew the moment I laid down the initial chord progressions that the beat had a lot of potential. Clara & myself met in the studio and wanted to create a record with a different style and feel.”
