About AE: Bursting onto the scene during lockdown, with their debut 4 track EP, ‘Summer We Never Had’ (2020), AE soon joined the MOBO Unsung top 20 finalists (2021) with whom they toured and performed across the country. With the release of the self-directed music video ‘Mistaken’ (2022), subsequent releases ‘Tell Me’ (2022) and ‘Not Your Girl’ (2023), AE’s rising star has been cemented. In 2023, AE performed at The Great Escape and Radiate Festival, with early support coming from Complex UK & TRENCH, Kiss, Reprezent, NoSignal and 1Xtra.
