2012 was a eventful year for AC, releasing 3 well-received EPs, rapping and acting in the modern opera 'Pop'pea' in Paris with Marc Almond of Soft Cell and Carl Barat of the Libertines, and hitting 50,000 CD's sold on the streets! To start off 2013 he has released 'Keep it Together', his 20 track solo album!
'Keep it together' is a concept album about a man's journey from negativity to positivity in these merciless times, all produced by AC except for 'Work' by June 25th, 'A better way' by Matt Helliwell, and the digital-only bonus tracks 'Live and Learn' by Oleg Lenny from France, and 'Stuck in the Zoo' by Pinju from Germany. It also features Genesis Elijah and Alex Dutty on 'Lost' and the soulful vocals of David Bishop on 'A better way' and 'How I feel'.
The first video from the album 'True Story' got AC a True Honour Award from IKWRO, a women's rights charity, (as it deals with issues of domestic, sexist and racial abuse) and appearances on current affairs discussion shows on BBC Asian network and Britasia TV.
