Free piano sheet music from Rixton
Rixton is the name of a United Kingdom pop and pop rock band.
Originally from Manchester and London, the band consists of four members and have been signed by SB Projects, which belongs to Scooter Braun. In 2012, they had the name Relics, but decided to change it to Rixton. The band has been fairly successful since its debut, their first single ever managing to perform well worldwide. That single was "Me and My Broken Heart".
The band members are Jake Roche, Danny Wilkin, Lewi Morgan and Charley Bagnall. They began their musical career with performing covers, which they uploaded as videos on YouTube. Thus, they became pretty known in the digital media. After getting known by Scooter Braun, who signed them, they started working on "Make Out", which, once its release, received moderate attention.
The reason for that is that "Make Out" was intended as a parody for other famous videos from 2013, like Rihanna’s "Stay", Miley Cyrus’ "Wrecking Ball" and even "Roar" by Katy Perry or "Applause" by Lady Gaga. Among others artists parodied by the video we can remember Robin Thicke with "Blurred Lines" and Justin Bieber’s "Beauty and a Beat".
On the fourteenth of March, 2014, the band released their debut single, titled "Me and My Broken Heart". It was first available on radio and has managed to chart internationally, in places such as Australia, US and Sweden. In the UK, it topped the charts and the single ultimately received Gold certification.
Working together with School Boy, Mad Love, Giant Little Man and Interscope Records, the band worked on their first album. In the summer of 2014, they toured in the US and the UK, even getting on stage with Justin Bieber. After the summer, they came back to the US, where they started their own tour titled "The Broken Heart Tour". The tour took part in Canada, as well as the US, totaling 12 cities. In November they toured in the UK once again.
Their debut album was titled "Let the Road" and got released on the second of March, 2015.
The album has been made available as both CD format and as digital download. They have been nominated in 2014 for four Teen Choice Awards, for Choice Music Group, Choice Music: Breakout Group, Choice Summer Music Star: Group and Choice Single Group. In 2014 they also starred in "The Haunted Hathaways" as themselves.
A young group with great R&B and Country influences, Rixton is a band worth keeping your eyes on!
