After taking his bedroom recordings to the next level with a full band in Jonquil, Oxford-based Hugo Manuel went back to recording as a solo artist under the name Chad Valley. Jonquil signed to Dovecote Records in the States and, around the same time, Manuel leaked a handful of dreamy, Ibiza and R&B-inspired electro-pop demos to the Web. A flock of sites (including Vice, Pitchfork, and Guardian) featured Chad Valley's “Up and Down” or “Acker Bilk” in the summer of 2010. Manuel continued to play with Jonquil, with plans to release an album later that year. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
