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 â€œUp and Downâ€� or â€œAcker Bilkâ€� 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.
