Born in 1972, Bitty’s earliest memories were punctuated by the music he would hear courtesy of his father’s sound system, where at the tender age of ten he started singing over Jamaican Dub and Instrumental riddims.
In 1992, McLean had not only co-produced but played and sang on UB40’s hugely successful album “Promises And Lies” selling in excess of 8 million copies.
Signed to Brilliant Records by 1993 Bitty’s own recordings including It Keeps Rainin’, Dedicated To The One I Love and Here I Stand notched up 3 UK top ten singles by 1994 selling over 1 million records.
The subsequent years saw Bitty accrue a fearsome catalogue of top 30 singles, as well as playing UK arena tours with UB40, Wet Wet Wet and Simply Red.
In 2004, he released the superb “On Bond Street”, in which Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle instrumentals played by the legendary Tommy McCook and The Supersonics formed the basis of the album. Bitty complemented these 35 year old tracks with such elegance it was hard to believe he was not there when the tracks were originally recorded.
2006 was the beginning of what is now a twelve year collaboration with the worlds greatest rhythm section, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.
The trio have recorded and toured extensively, and continue to build on a musical catalogue which includes critically acclaimed albums Movin On’, The Taxi Sessions, Heart Mind and Soul and the newly released Love Restart.

Now, for a limited number of dates, Navi will be joined on stage by Michael’s original guitarist Jennifer Batten for a string of UK dates in 2018 & 2019 (selected shows only). Jennifer performed with Michael on all three world tours (Bad, Dangerous, History) and the iconic Superbowl half-time show.

UK UNSIGNED - The UK’s biggest independent talent showcase
After 20 years of operation, UK UNSIGNED is the UK’s biggest independent talent showcase project for (non-televised) talent, with more categories and opportunities than any other production. Their showcases and workshops around the country extend to over 20 categories, providing the broadest base to consistently give new talent a platform to showcase their skills.
As they celebrate their 20th year, this season’s participants will have opportunities to win up to £20,000 worth of prizes. For some categories this includes overseas opportunities such as:
· Reggae Category (Song for Jamaica): Opportunity to perform at Rebel Salute, one of Jamaica’s premiere Reggae Festivals.
· Solo Dance Category (U CAN DANCE): Opportunity to perform in Antigua as part of the annual U CAN DANCE Caribbean showcase.
· Overall UK UNSIGNED Winner: The UK UNSIGNED Winners’ Winner (best performer across all categories) will get to showcase in Atlanta, USA in 2020.
This season’s series will culminate in their first ever National UK UNSIGNED Week between October 6 – 12. Activities will start with the UK UNSIGNED Grand Finals at the Broadway Theatre in Catford and ends with the Silver Dress Ball in Pall Mall (Oct 12).
UK UNSIGNED will be looking to select performers from the categories of cover singers, singer/songwriters, individual dancers, comedians, poets, MCs and dance groups to perform across National UK UNSIGNED Week as both contestants and as special performers. For the first time ever they shall also be ensuring that our categories include disabled participants, which is being co-ordinated by one of their members, Wind of Change in Milton Keynes.
Each category winner will be given a business support package within their prizes which will assist in developing strategies to enable them to be self-sustaining through their talent. Over the past 20 years, UK UNSIGNED have seen many changes and challenges to unsigned artists. They fully understand the real support needs they require to pursue their potential instead of pushing unrealistic pipe dreams.
Other past successes of UK UNSIGNED participants include: Katie Melua and Leona Lewis who went on to become one of the UK’s highest earning female singers. The Flawless Dance Group, who continuously tour the UK with their special brand of theatre dance productions. However, the majority of our participants go on to pursue long term sustainable performance careers such as:
· Natalie Chua: Recently casted in “Bat Out Of Hell”: Dominion Theatre
· HBoss: SABA & UK Youth Ambassador
· Kathryn Kitchener: Casted in “Love Struck”: Cockpit Theatre, London
Our UK UNSIGNED showcases are part of a fundraising strategy to support their creative development projects. The main projects are the HiCrEc Project, Youth Apprenticeship Programme and You Digital Network (YDN).
The HiCrEc (Hidden Creative Economy) project works with creative industry practitioners who operate without mainstream support or recognition. Through various initiatives they help them to keep the productions of their talent maintained across the mainstream.
Their Youth Apprenticeship Programme works with excluded young people from disadvantaged communities. Supporting their transition from dysfunctional lifestyles through to gaining the skills to attain mainstream inclusion and long term careers.
Within the Your Digital Network (YDN) programme they help people to develop new skills within digital technology so they can pursue either employment opportunities of commercial start ups that can suit today’s environment.
Whilst music remains the main focus of UK UNSIGNED, other areas such as UK UNSIGNED Film, UK UNSIGNED Drama and UK UNSIGNED Fashion have given new UK based talent a real platform from which they can gain a stake in the Creative Industries. UK UNSIGNED are even introducing a skills development category where participants can explore opportunities around set design, sound engineering and event management.
