Timothy McKenzie (born 1 April 1989, Hackney, London), better known by his stage name Labrinth, is an English singer-songwriter and record producer. McKenzie is signed to Simon Cowell’s label Syco, becoming the first non-talent show signing in six years. Initially, he was tipped to work as a producer, but Cowell signed him as a solo act.
Labrinth made his debut appearance on the UK Singles Chart in March 2010, when his collaboration with British rapper Tinie Tempah “Pass Out” reached number one. His first solo single “Let the Sun Shine” was released in September 2010, reaching number three in the same chart. His debut album Electronic Earth was released on 2 April 2012, having been preceded by the singles “Earthquake” featuring Tinie Tempah and “Last Time”, which peaked at number two and number four respectively.
In addition to McKenzie’s signing to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco, he also made a deal to create his own imprint label within Syco, which he named Odd Child Recordings. The record label title comes from its purpose: to locate and nurture young and upcoming artists. It was revealed on 5 July 2011 that Odd Child made its first signing with singer Etta Bond. Currently writing material for her debut release, Bond is working with producer DaVinChe – having already released the demo singles “Ask Me to Stay” and “Come Over”. Bond also made an appearance on British rapper Wretch 32′s second studio album, Black and White, on the track “Forgiveness” – which was released on 11 December 2011 as a single.
