Mason Noise said, “Music isn’t just entertainment. It has the incredible ability to heal and inspire where nothing else can. I’m just trying to build towards that.”

According to Grantley GT Haynes, founder of My Boyz Beats, “Mason’s nuanced approach has produced a track that oozes an R&B melody, with the vibrancy of a pop track.”

He added, “Mason has poured his heart and soul into this record. And it’s a pleasure to be a part of his story so far. We’ve created something really special, and we hope that shines through in the record.”

After completing two UK tours at the age of 18, Mason Noise went on to perform to crowds of 40,000 during the X Factor Live Arena Tour. Mason caused a huge controversy when he spoke out about the show’s outdated format back in 2015, but he won the hearts of millions across the nation with his talent.

The Scoop: We’re changing the game

PR – TRADITIONALLY EXPENSIVE AND LITTERED WITH ‘EXPERTS’ WHO TALK THE TALK BUT DON’T WALK THE WALK.

For any business, public relations can be a minefield.

That’s why we’re changing the game.

If you’ve ever used an agency to do your PR or tried to handle it internally, you’ll understand the tribulations all too well.  You’re bound to have come across agencies who charge a minimum of £3000 per month and yield very little. You find yourself being passed to account executives who have absolutely no connection to your brand or worse still, find yourself with an account manager who hasn’t got the faintest idea about how to put together an effective communications strategy.

If you’ve tried to do it in-house, you’d have battled with law and legislation, very expensive software solutions, or very cheap and ineffective software solutions, not to mention the ‘PR’ pro you hired for a ridiculous salary not delivering what they promised.

Our new service bridges the gap for SME’s and large businesses who want an effective, digital and traditional service, which delivers real time results.

Flaherty to the forefront

It’s safe to say that there are exciting times ahead for our good friend and client, Gilly Flaherty.

We’re delighted to share She Kicks magazine’s interview with Gilly. Read on to learn more about her move from Chelsea FC Women to becoming the captain of West Ham United.

Let’s get the ball rolling…

“Shy and retiring she may not be, but Gilly Flaherty admits she felt largely faded from view at Chelsea last season. Four-and-a-half unforgettable years at the club came to an end this summer with a switch to West Ham United, awarded a top-tier place after the FA Women’s Super League restructure. Handed the captaincy by manager Matt Beard, the defender already looks a natural fit as a Hammer.”

SK: Let’s get right to it…what does your dad (a Millwall fan, like Gilly…) think to you joining West Ham?!

GF: It took him a little bit of a while to get his head around it, but it’s important for him that I’m happy, so he has to take it on the chin. But I can’t see him buying a West Ham shirt anytime soon!

Mason talks SANE at schools

SANE ambassador Mason Noise has helped to raise awareness of mental health in schools since joining forces with SANE in August 2017.

Mason began his SANE school trip at Eastbury Community School to welcome the return of Elvis, a fibreglass statue of a black dog, as part of the charity’s campaign.

The black dog has been a metaphor for depression for centuries, having featured in classical mythology and medieval folklore.

When asked why he was supporting the Black Dog campaign, Mason said, “Having struggled in the past with the Black Dog of depression myself, it’s no surprise to me that so many young people are affected – but the way SANE works is to try and support those who need it.”

Mason continued, “Depression doesn’t discriminate. It’s time that we spread the word that it’s more common than most still think, especially in schools. Whether we suffer from mental illness or not, we all let external things dictate our inner being.”

Anxiety, anger and depression affects us all to some degree – it’s time to inspire people to help our friends, family and classmates fight back.”

Mason Noise takes LA

Mason Noise is heading to LA later this month to add the finishing touches to his hotly anticipated EP – ‘Good Days Are Forever’ with an award-winning producer.

His single ‘She Drives Me Crazy’, a cover of the Fine Young Cannibals’ huge 80s hit, will be released with a music video in February 2018. The track has already been a massive hit within the industry, with names such as: The Weeknd, Marvin Humes and most recently Sinitta praising his vocals and vibe.

In a recent interview with C&C, Mason Noise said, “The decision to do a cover was completely arbitrary. People are resonating with hooks/songs that are being recreated. A lot of dance songs are covers and even in the R&B world, they’re being taken and revamped. Music was a lot better then than it is now.”

Mason continued, “I want to bring that music back – that old R&B sound. I never put myself in a box with regards to sound, if it resonates with me then great; it’s more the vibe I’m trying to recreate than the sound. The same vibe you might get from the 90s and 00s R&B.”

The Power of Celebrity Support at Charity Events

Many UK charities are utilising celebrity supporters as a way of enticing new audiences to support, or at least take note, of their causes.

This month, we have helped to raise the profile of two charity events using our ritzy portfolio of celebrity talent – Midlands Air Ambulance Charity golf day & the Elbrook Gala Dinner.

On 10th October 2017, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity hosted their 3rd annual corporate golf day in Warwickshire with celebrity support from Yogurt Top’s Waine Turner, Mason Noise and George Gilbey. The celebrity putters were also joined by Yogurt Top’s CEO Matt Flint, who is a patron of the charity. The annual golf day helped to raise vital funds for the charity’s life saving work, and was hailed as one of the most prestigious, enjoyable and professional corporate golfing events in the UK.

On 5th October 2017, Elbrook Cash and Carry held their 8th annual Elbrook Gala Dinner at Chak 89 in Mitcham – all in aid of The British Asian Trust.

Our managing director, Matt Flint pulled out all the stops (yet again!) and secured the attendance of some of the biggest names to the event.

Sporting Legends Continue their Support for MAAC

Since Big Joe Egan and Waine Turner were announced as celebrity supporters of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity last year, they have continued to show their support for the charity’s lifesaving work.

On Sunday 17th September, celebrity supporters Big Joe Egan and Waine Turner attended the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s special Open Day at their Strensham airbase in Worcestershire.

Mason Noise joins forces with SANE

Our very own Mason Noise has officially announced his ambassadorship with the UK’s leading mental health charity, SANE.

The ‘bad boy of X Factor’ is donating 100% of profits from his hotly anticipated single, ‘Hold Me’, to the charity with the aim of encouraging people to talk openly about mental health and wellbeing.

‘Hold Me’ will be released next month in partnership with SANE.

Mason Noise

Mason Noise said: “SANE are a charity that are very close to my heart. For years I felt the need to hide the fact that I was struggling with depression and anxiety. I feared that it would make people believe that I wasn’t capable of reaching my dreams.

“Over the past year, I have watched people’s attitudes to mental health and wellbeing change. Slowly and surely, SANE and organisations like them, are proving that there’s nothing to be ashamed of.

“I want to encourage people to see the power in seeking an ear to talk to about what’s happening in their mind. Being given the opportunity to work with SANE is very exciting for me, and has helped me to achieve a comfortable state of mind.

“Never underestimate the power of being able to potentially help someone else. We all need a hand to hold, sometimes”.
