Albin Lee Meldau
2017 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for Albin, a singular singer-songwriter who hails from Gothenburg, Sweden, the son of a Swedish jazz singer mom and a British punk rocker dad. He was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Grammis (Swedish Grammy Awards) and won the 2016 Anchor Award, an international competition hosted by the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany that seeks out the best new emerging talent. He was selected by a jury that included producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie) who sang Albin's praises in presenting him the award: "Something is pouring out of his heart and soul when he sings."
Last year Albin signed with Astralwerks who re-released his stunning debut EP Lovers. Albin has already notched more than 18 million streams on Spotify with "Lou Lou" reaching #1 on Spotify's Viral 50 chart in five countries. Albin is currently working on new music to be released later this spring, and he'll make his debut appearance at the Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival this summer.
