North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

He Knows She Knows say “Kon’nichiwa Nihon”

North-East urban pop, power couple, He Knows She Knows, are heading to Japan this September as part of the Kansai Music Conference in Osaka.

Silvar & Sharna Laidlow took the first step on the road to fame and stardom when appearing on the X Factor auditions in 2016, the exact point in which Silvar dropped to one knee and proposed, on national television.

Although it’s been a bumpy ride since then the pair have toured the UK, on several occasions, and headlined Newcastle’s O2 Academy 2 with their ‘Slay Bell Bash’ last December.

Now though, it’s off to Japan where they’ll also take in a four-date tour, and a trip to YouTube HQ to record a studio performance.

“Our music is regularly played in Japan on the KMC Vibes Radio Show on Blackan Radio with Duane Levi (Shalestone Music) which is picked up by those on the conference,” began Silvar.

“We thought, because of that, we’d try a different avenue ourselves and so reached out to them and that’s how we ended up being invited over to the Kansai Music Conference.”

In addition to the conference Silvar & Sharna also perform four headline dates, taking in Kobe, Nishinomiya, and two in Tokyo, between September 19 and 25.


Flying out on the 17th the duo will be away for ten days and they’ve already motioned to wanting more, aware that this will be just the beginning of what is to come for them.

“We do everything ourselves so that, one day, when we do get there, it’ll all be worth it because we did it our way,” added Silvar.

“We want the He Knows She Knows brand to be worldwide and this is just the beginning.

“We know it’ll help us moving forward and that’s what we want to happen.”

Pacewell Entertainment/iStage Group backed He Knows She Knows made their announcement live on ‘The Evening Show with Tamsin Robson’ on BBC Radio Newcastle and have also released their new single, ‘Can’t Take That From Me.’
