A SINGER who spent years busking in Croydon town centre is to release his first album after earning a million-pound recording contract. Si Cranstoun, 38, was a regular feature in North End, performing with his brother Tyber in their band The Dualers. He spent years busking in the high street, selling CDs and trying to get his music heard. Success evaded him until April last year when he landed a deal with music giants Warner. The singer, from Caterham, Surrey, is due to release his debut album this summer. He looks set for success after his debut single, Caught in the Moonlight, was shortlisted on the Radio 2 playlist last month. "There were stages where I felt like it wasn't going to happen but in my heart I thought this is the path I wanted to go down," he told Mail Online. "That mentality just got me through the day. Now I'm just thanking my lucky stars. When I was played on the radio my family came over and my parents were in tears. They are so proud. "It's been a wonderful life and street entertainment is all about lifting people's spirits and enjoying the music."
