WHAT HE MADE
Born Elliot Gleave in 1982, Example’s introduction to the music industry proper came alongside Mike Skinner, who signed him to his The Beats label, under which he released his What We Made album in 2007. But Example’s proper breakthrough would wait until 2009, when his song Watch The Sun Come Up broke the top 20. His trajectory’s been an upward one ever since, with several of his own chart-topping records and a string of collaborations behind him. He also has a background in film, having studied directing at Royal Holloway, University Of London.
