02 SatBarlo LN & Alexander Oscar Read more
20-year-old Alexander Oscar is a Danish singer and songwriter signed to Sony Music Denmark. With only a few singles released, he has already proven himself a true pop star on the rise. He is an extremely talented vocalist and songwriter and has formed his own, unique universe of smooth and immensely catchy pop songs.
Although the early stage in his career he has already been working with prominent producers that has also worked with hit artists such as: Mark Ronson, Zara Larsson, Mary J. Blidge, Ellie Goulding and Alma.
BarlowLN, Virginian native Evan Barlow, is the unapologetic poet this generation needs.
Unafraid to bend the rules, he combines childhood influences 2Pac and Eminem with the poetry of Bob Dylan and grit of Johnny Cash. The result is a modern day Americana that is all at once visceral, confessional, sincere and raw.”My debut album was originally written like a story of my life from 14 to 20 years old.
Starting at the beginning of my teenage party years and ending at rock bottom when I was in jail due to my heroin use. And, my mother passed away.”It’s been a wild ride that’s for sure, glad I was able to make it out alive and put it into art”.
With his debut album complete and exec produced by Grammy winning producer Martin Terefe, BarlowLN will be releasing via Locomotion Recordings in partnership with the new Elektra Music Group / Warner from early 2019.
