London has arguably the best music scene around, with thousands of talented musicians emerging every day, most of which are unsigned acts waiting for their big break.

Unsigned Friday brings you the very best unsigned music artists from around the capital, as well as giving these acts a platform to promote their music.

This week, getwestlondon 's Emily Chudy caught up with Luton-based R&B singer/songwriter Tyrell Batchelor.

The 18-year-old musician has just released a new single entitled Going Places, which is currently available for download on Soundcloud .

Tyrell said: "My music, I think it's more of a new R&B flavour... It's kind of a smooth R&B sound. At the moment I'm loving Chip, Angel, obviously Chris Brown, Tre Songs, PartyNextDoor, Kevin McCall, so many people I could name!"

The musician has been performing and singing since he was eight, starting at church when he was a child.

Tyrell said: "I started playing music at a young age, I think I might have been maybe around eight or nine at church. I started playing drums and then one time I was forced to sing in this choir. In my church you had to do something in music, whether you're good or not, you're doing it...

"I never knew I could sing. My dad found out I could sing, so he passed the mic to me - everyone killed it, then it was my turn and they were like 'wow, we never knew you could do this!' That must have been around 11 or 12. From then, I knew I could sing and I've just been singing ever since."

Tyrell is just starting out his music career, yet his debut single is already getting attention from fans and radio stations.

Tyrell said: "I'm getting a lot of feedback from the music, which has been good, they've played it on a few radio stations, I've had a few artists come at me for features and things like that. People have been saying they like it... I've got a lot more to come!

"I'm thinking of maybe releasing a Going Places Part Two with someone I often do music with, and I'm also going to do a little Gospel project as well, just getting back to where I started.

"I'm looking to get something out by the end of the year. I'm also planning to do an EP, but for the moment I'm just planning a few singles and attacking it that way."

Tyrell said: "I'd love to do this full time, this has been my dream since I can remember... At the moment I'm just in sixth form, so I'm slowing it down just a little bit to make sure I have some grades behind me, then after sixth form I'll definitely want to start to take music seriously...

"I'm hoping to develop my fanbase and have my name out there!"
