A 49-year-old U.K. plumber landed a record deal after a music mogul heard him singing while he was working in his bathroom. Kev Crane spent six weeks installing a new suite at the home of Paul Conneally, completely unaware that he was the owner of a record label. As he worked, Crane would spend his days singing along to his favorite tunes on the radio, including David Bowie and Meat Loaf. Conneally was so impressed that he gave Crane a record deal, and he’s now made his first album. Crane says he was shocked when Conneally offered him a chance to sign onto his New Reality Records, which has artists from Brazil, New York and Britain. Crane used to be in a cover band called The Reprise in 1990s, covering bands like Depeche Mode, as well as writing his own music.
