Fame Academy alumnus and Leon Jackson prototype, David Sneddon, has reportedly ‘penned’ (CO-penned, surely) some songs for ‘serious musician’ Matthew Cardle’s debut album, ‘Letters’. Guy Chambers and Gary Barlow have also written tracks for the ‘Travis meets Snow Patrol’ sounding record.
In 2009, the ‘Stop Living the Lie’ hitmaker was hired by Sony/ATV Music Publishing as a songwriter for Syco and Universal Music. Since then he has written somes songs for Julian Peretta and (you’d better have a sit down) the Hurts album including ‘Illuminated’ (yes, way), ‘Silver Lining’ and ‘Blood, Tears and Gold’. Well done, David.
You’ll be able to hear the Sneddo-collabo when Letters is released on October 17, just in time for Matt to perform Barlow cast off ‘Run For Your Life’ live on that X Factor programme.
