American singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc sings lead vocals on “Wake Me Up!” – the worldwide smash hit from DJ Avicii. The single has reached the number one spot in 102 countries and is the fifth best-selling dance/electro track in Soundscan history.
Aloe Blacc says he has several musical influences: “I’m a huge fan of classic soul music so I love the musicality and the arrangements, the chord progressions in some of the better compositions of soul music. And I love the attitude and kind of grit of classic and psychedelic rock.”
Aloe Blacc started out as a rapper, before he moved into singing. He has released three studio albums and is currently on tour promoting the most recent one, “Lift Your Spirit” which was released earlier this year.
Aloe Blacc said: “I’ve always had, I think an inspirational message. I’ve always been about motivation, about success, about peace and love. And I think as a major recording artist even more so because I recognize the tremendous megaphone that I have to speak to the entire world.”
