Last night, while performing a sold-out show in London, rising UK singer-songwriter Plested
“This is easily my favourite song I’ve ever written,” says Plested. “I was thinking about my Mum and how much we all sacrifice for the people that we love. I’d written down the phrase ‘the least that I could do is die for you’ in my book, so I locked myself away in the studio with a friend and we wrote it all in one day! I love that I can sing my absolute heart out in the chorus, yet still be so honest and personal in the verses.”
“The Least That I Could Do” follows the singer-songwriter’s release of “Either You Love Me Or You Don’t” which arrived this past spring alongside a live-action lyric video, highlighted by exclusive tour footag. Upon release, Alternative Press featured the song as one of their “10 New Songs You Need To Hear This Week” noting, “The singer serenades through a tale of love that never was with an inflection that would make John Mayer proud.” Plested also unveiled a beautifully stripped performance visual for the song which can be viewed HERE.
Hailed as a warm and charismatic live performer, Plested recently embarked on a series of European headline dates. For updates and much more, please visit www.plestedmusic.com. This past year, Plested took his incredibly captivating live performances on the road opening for Alec Benjamin, Calum Scott, Emile Sandé and Maisie Peters in Europe and Nina Nesbitt across North America.
Last year, Plested unveiled his acclaimed debut artist project, FIRST & FOREMOST, which proved he has his own compelling story to tell. The eight-track project – which includes the powerful hits, “Your Name,” “Ribcage,” and “Easier Said Than Done,” all joined by compelling companion videos streaming now via YouTube – was hailed by an array of media outlets, including Alternative Press, Hollywire, BlackBook, Substream, Atwood Magazine, and Ones To Watch.
Before arriving with FIRST & FOREMOST, Plested made a name for himself by penning songs for some of pop music’s biggest names. Past credits include songs for Lewis Capaldi, ZAYN, The Vamps, Kygo Feat. Miguel, Emeli Sandé, Naughty Boy, Calum Scott, and Little Mix, for whom he co-wrote the UK Top 5, 2x platinum single, “Touch.” Both his solo output and hit collaborations reveal a gifted tunesmith with a distinctive pop approach all his own, combining top tier songcraft with an irrepressible knack for melody and highly personal insight.
