BA Media Arts, 2003 RHBNC

As the singer and rapper Example, Elliot Gleave is now a firm festival favourite and stadium headliner. He first found success with the release of his second album, Won't Go Quietly, which reached number 4 in the UK Albums Chart in 2010 and featured two top 10 singles, Won't Go Quietly and Kickstarts.
