Jake and Danny started writing together 3 years ago in Danny’s parents caravan. Two years later they were introduced to Charley through mutual friends and year later they stumbled upon Lewi when he attempted to hit on Jake’s then girlfriend and asked him to join the band. Drawing comparisons to Maroon 5, Rixton offer up a wealth of addictive pop/rock/R&B built on their own brand of songwriting, instrumentation and vocal harmonies. The band has been steadily gaining a large YouTube following from their reimagined covers of tracks including Taylor Swift’s “Trouble”, Rita Ora’s “How We Do (Party)”, Chris Brown’s “Don’t Wake Me Up” , R. Kelly’s “Ignition” eventually catching the ear of talent manager Scooter Braun. Their video for debut track “Make Out,” a guitar-driven, hook-laced party anthem has already reached over 1 million YouTube views. Working with Grammy winning producer Benny Blanco, Rixton released a four song EP titled “Me and My Broken Heart EP” in March 2014 to much critical acclaim, earning them a #1 spot on the UK Singles Charts with title track “Me and My Broken Heart”.
