TAWBOX, the creative directors for Stormzy, Dave and Mabel are celebrating after the BRIT Awards 2020 with Mastercard, where its artists won the three major categories at the prestigious 2020 ceremony. Stormzy took home Male Solo Artist, with Mabel winning Female Solo Artist and Dave Mastercard Album of the Year for ‘Psychodrama’.
During the show the creative studio were also responsible for delivering a stellar night of music, creating performances by Stormzy, Dave and Mabel. TAWBOX, made up of Bronski and Amber Rimell, were the creative directors behind the showstopping performances at London’s O2 Arena.
Opening the show with a big, colourful, pop explosion, Mabel delivered a performance of her hit single Don’t Call Me Up. Proving he is one of the greatest performers in music today, Stormzy took to the stage performing a medley consisting of Don’t Forget to Breathe, Do Better, Wiley Flow, Own It (with Burna Boy), Anybody (Burna Boy) and Rainfall (with Tiana Major). The performance was a celebration of the year Stormzy has had, sharing the stage with a cast of 143 talented individuals, forming a medley that was a celebration of what black culture can achieve on the biggest stage. The last of TAWBOX’s show creations of the evening was Dave, who performed a political and powerful rendition of Black. Never taking away from the heart and message of Dave’s words, the piano featured the use of extended reality, forming a 3D world that supported the lyric and paid respect to Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones who lost their lives in the London Bridge terror attack on November 29 last year.
Along with the performances at last night’s BRIT Awards, TAWBOX were responsible for some of music’s biggest moments in 2019, including Stormzy’s iconic Glastonbury headline performance, which made international headlines. The creative studio also delivered Dave’s 2019 Psychodrama tour, Mabel’s EMA performance and AJ Tracey’s two sold out shows at Alexandra Palace.
Bronski Co-Founder and creative of TAWBOX said: “Stormzy, Dave and Mabel are all awe-inspiring talents who continuously work so hard to master and execute their craft, and for them all to get acknowledged with awards is simply incredible and deserved.
Mabel proved she is the current queen of pop with her big award win and her most ambitious performance yet.
Dave used his opportunity of the biggest stage to pour out emotive and political heart, and to then leave the stage with possibly the most important mic drops of recent times. The performance incorporated a lot of technology aimed at the camera to visually support his poetry, but that never, once detracted from the heart and emotion of Dave’s words and expression.
Stormzy once again leaves no doubt that he is one of the greatest performers of modern times. From his soft, pure singing to the hardest delivery of vocal, that performance was pure showmanship. We love that Stormzy is so graceful in sharing the stage too, and all the additional performers brought their own talent to the table that night to help create a hugely dynamic performance that was simply a spectacle”.
Rimell Co-Founder and creative of TAWBOX said: “Congratulations Mabel on winning Female Solo Artist. You’ve worked so hard for this recognition and moment, We’ve believed in you from the very start and we’re so proud to see you shine as you so righteously deserve. Congratulations to Dave on Mastercard Album Of The Year- your words and artistry touch the souls and hearts of everyone. Finally, to Stormzy for winning Male Solo Artist. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing how far you have come as an artist. Thank you for sharing your stage with so many talented people and thank you for your trust in our creativity.”
