Taio Cruz: Shepherd's Bush Empire, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 4 December 2008

A privately educated Londoner, Cruz does everything the American urban stars do — sings, produces, writes hits for others (winning a Brit for Will Young's 'Your Game') — but with a modesty that could only be English.
