Interscope Records, along with talent manager Scooter Braun and songwriter-producer Benny Blanco, are pleased to announce that they have signed British pop/rock/R&B band Rixton to School Boy/Giant Little Man/Mad Love/Interscope Records and will release the group’s debut single, “Me and My Broken Heart” and the “Me and My Broken Heart” EP, on March 18th. The track is the first single from Rixton’s upcoming debut album due later this year. Check out the brand new lyric video HERE. Hailing from Manchester, Rixton are Jake Roche, (vocals/rhythm guitar), Danny Wilkin (bass/keys), Charley Bagnall (lead guitar), and Lewi Morgan, (drums). Jake and Danny began writing together three years ago in Danny’s parent’s caravan. Two years later they were introduced to Charley through mutual friends and a year later stumbled upon Lewi in a back alley of a Manchester pub (playing pots and pans) and asked him to join the band.
Inspired by the soulful pop sounds of Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars, Rixton offer up a wealth of addictive pop/rock/R&B built on their own brand of songwriting, instrumentation, and vocal harmonies. Working with producer Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Maroon 5), Rixton introduce their engaging sound to American audiences with the sultry “Me and My Broken Heart,” which premiered on JoJo Wright’s show on KIIS FM in Los Angeles and has already been added to both KIIS FM and Z100 in New York and impacts radio on March 11th.
