Stars do not come bigger than Michael Jackson, the ‘King of Pop’ or his sister Janet Jackson, but if throw in Boyz ll Men, Vanessa Williams, Teddy Riley, Lou Bega, and Deborah Cox to name just a few of some of the biggest names in the music industry over the last several decades. What they all have in common is they have been managed by Qadree El-Amin and, now add 14-year-old U.K. child singing and songwriting prodigy Phoebe Austin to that illustrious list.
Qadree El-Amin’s pedigree and history speaks for itself, just ‘Google’ his name to see what he has already achieved in music and entertainment. However, Phoebe Austin may make many ask, “Who?”
Phoebe Austin is an incredible young talent, born in the same area as another global Star Ed Sheeran. Born in Sudbury, Suffolk Phoebe Austin started playing and performing at the age of 6, and it was obvious to many even then that she was something special. Fast forward to present day and Phoebe, at the ripe old age of 14, has already won awards, signed a recording deal, and been hailed in the media from the BBC to worldwide press for her talents. Phoebe Austin was brought to the attention of Qadree El-Amin by Stevie Eagle E head of Shlepp Entertainment Ltd/Shlepp Records, her recording and production company and let’s say the rest is history.
When we asked Qadree El-Amin what he saw in Phoebe Austin he replied:
“I could find no fault with her, no reason not to sign her, her music, writing, poise, and vibe have the ‘X-Factor’. I like to think I know the ‘X-Factor’ when I see and hear it and all this so young. I was already hooked before I spoke to her and her mother, but speaking to them both sealed the deal. I was convinced this young lady is destined for great things and I wanted to help her achieve those great things because that is my calling in life. She will be the first UK artist I have managed and I see great things ahead.”
In an exclusive statement to us Phoebe Austin said:
“I’m really excited to have signed with Qadree El-Amin. This is going to be a great step for me and a big opportunity to learn and grow even more. I am grateful to Stevie Eagle E and Shlepp Entertainment for providing me with so many opportunities to go forward and realize my dreams. I hope in the next few years my music will be reaching a wider audience and I can live up to the trust and confidence everyone has put in me. I know Qadree will help me achieve this along Shlepp Entertainment and the rest of my amazing team. It is hard to take in what has happened to me in the last year or so. I have high hopes for the future now that Qadree has joined our team.”
Phoebe Austin is currently working on her debut album which is due out early next year. With Qadree El-Amin behind her, Phoebe will benefit from a wealth of knowledge and opportunities to shine and show the world who she really is. To find out more about Phoebe Austin visit her website.
