Maverick Sabre's highly anticipated debut album, Lonely Are The Brave, will be released on February 6th 2012. His third single from the album, No One, will be released on the same day. In March 2012, Maverick will embark on his biggest UK tour so far, taking in ten cities in ten days.
The video for No One sees the singer in a nightclub, preparing to perform. As he sings, he attempts to catch the eye of a pretty brunette.
Born in Hackney as Michael Stafford, Maverick made his music debut in 2008, when he appeared on Terawrizt and Nu-Centz's album Sense The Terror. His debut mixtape, The Travelling Man, was released in 2010 and featured the promotional single Sometimes, which featured fellow rapper Wretch 32.
However, it wasn't until the release of his debut single, Let Me Go, that Maverick Sabre hit the big time. Even before its release in August 2011, the song was a hit on many radio stations; it peaked at number 16 on the UK Album Charts. His second single, I Need, was released digitally in November 2011 and reached number 18. In that same year, the singer toured with Snoop Dogg and worked with artists such as Cee Lo Green; Professor Green and Chase & Status.
