After a glowing year as the Nordic Spotify Spotlight Artist of 2016, multi-talented artist Sonny Alven kicks off 2017 with his new single “Your Touch” feat. Olivera. Due for release on January 20, “Your Touch” is anticipated to enjoy similar success to Sonny’s Norwegian Grammy-nominated breakthrough original “Our Youth.”
The track is led by Olivera’s vocal line, complemented by uplifting chords and a gentle bassline. It follows on from Sonny’s previous summer hit and Hypemachine no. 1 “California Girls.”
Having produced official remixes for the likes of Alesso, Tove Lo and Astrid S, Sonny also supported Kygo on his European tour. His streaming stats are impressive; in 2016 alone, 6.5 million Spotify listeners streamed 213 years worth of his music. With many more productions in the works and his tour schedule gathering pace, “Your Touch” is the first track from an upcoming EP to be released in March, and just the start of what is set to be an even more successful 2017 for Sonny Alven.
About Sonny Alven
Most recently in 2016, Sonny’s “California Girls” reached no.1 on Hype Machine. Elsewhere, Sonny’s breakthrough original “Our Youth” ft Emmi was a huge hit in Norway, amassing 27 million streams on Spotify and secured him status both as UMG Nordic Priority Act and Spotify Spotlight Artist for 2016, plus 4 successive weeks at #2 in the official radio charts. Sonny’s productions also caught the attention of high-profile artists such as Alesso, Tove Lo and Astrid S, who all personally assigned Sonny to remix their music. In addition to the slew of successful singles, fellow Norwegian DJ Kygo brought Sonny on Board for his European tour last April, 19 shows in all major European cities and culminating in 2 sold out shows at the iconic Brixton Academy.
Sonny’s European success hasn’t gone unnoticed on the other side of the pond; Sonny was recently invited to play at the Splash House festival in Palm Springs and a few other key shows in the US, including supporting Galantis in New York, Matt Zo in Washington and Jerry Folk in San Diego, whilst also playing the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans last Autumn. A skilled DJ, Sonny also enjoys playing with live artists to take his shows to the next level. Having studied electronic music at university, he brings solid technical skills as a producer and a DJ.
