A GLASGOW-based radio station will become the first in the world to give featured singers the “credit that they deserve”.

Artist Kelli-Leigh, who has has three UK top 10 singles, two number 1’s, and a Grammy nomination, is rarely credited for her work as she used to be hired for a nominal fee as a session musician.

Singles that feature her, but don’t credit her on the sleeve include Duke Dumont featuring Jax Jones – I Got U and Second City – I Wanna Feel.

But, she has inspired Atmosphere Radio who have now pledged to change music history by launching the Be Vocal campaign.

Speaking to the station’s breakfast presenter, Suzi Martin, Kelli-Leigh said: “You don’t really think about it when you’ve got nobody looking out for your best interests, but suddenly from 2014, my voice was everywhere and you go ‘oh, that’s not cool, I should probably have my name on this’.

"And if my name was on the record then, maybe I’d have a different path now. I didn’t get given the choice, or the opportunity and just got paid my session fee.”

Steve Simms, programme director, said: “All of our presenters will now mention all featured singers when they introduce a song.

"We’ve also adapted the artist names on our website and mobile app so that the names of the guest singers will appear on the 'Now Playing' information."
