Tickets are now available for Sullii live at The Grace, London.
In a scene full of remarkably young artists documenting their growing pains, 28-year-old Sullii puts forth a different point of view; specifically, one that says, “I’ve seen some shit.” Over the past year, he has become known for his head and hand tattoos emerging from layers of neutral-toned streetwear as he emotively delivers lines addressing disillusioned love. Together, both visual and musical aesthetics merge to paint a picture that is refreshingly crisp. Behind the blindside of his sudden success, Sullii has a rich history of involvement in various art forms. Through these outlets, he shares the wisdom that comes with navigating a weathered but wonderous life for which he remains grateful.
“Even from a super young age, I was always so excited by music in general. The idea that someone was using this outlet to put themselves out there was such a brave thing,” Sullii recalls of his early years growing up in a working-class town in South West England. Before the ease of access provided by the internet, he practiced musical omnivorism in local record stores where he gave any album that caught his attention a chance. The result was a collection made of up of everything from 80s rock and American hip-hop to the U.K.’s budding Grime scene. Considering the genreless status of Sullii, the fact that this array of influences was embraced does not come as a surprise. “I was constantly trying to pull things from these artists as a collective as opposed to being a die-hard fan of one,” he explains.
