Meet The Artists
Since his eponymous global debut in 2016, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum artist Lukas Graham has solidified his status as one of the biggest breakout acts in music. His multi-platinum song “Love Someone,” from 2018’s 3 (The Purple Album), has now been streamed more than 1 billion times worldwide and is 18X Certified Platinum across multiple continents, with performances on Good Morning America, American Idol, The Bachelorette, Dancing with the Stars, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Late Night with Seth Meyers, LIVE with Kelly & Ryan and more. Lukas Graham became a breakthrough star with his 2016 self-titled debut album, spawning the 7X platinum, 3X GRAMMY® nominated hit “7 Years,” which has now been streamed 3 billion times globally. The smash was the highest-selling single by a debut artist in 2016, and catapulted the Danish superstar to sold-out tours around the world, critical acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, and countless television performances, including The GRAMMY® Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards, where he was also nominated for “Best New Artist.” The song transformed Lukas’ life into a whirlwind — a world away from his beginnings, born on a couch in Christiania, an impoverished quasi-commune located in the center of Copenhagen. He most recently unveiled his latest track “Call My Name,” following his emotionally charged single “Happy For You,” paving the way for much more to come from Lukas very soon.
As popular music gets more and more “genre-less,” Alec Benjamin has only gotten more and more era-less. You can’t pin his candid storytelling, warm melodies, sticky hooks, and natural production to any age. That’s why he’s quietly become his generation’s own troubadour. Thus far, he has amassed nearly four billion streams, 820 million YouTube views, and multiple gold and platinum singles. He has sold out shows on three continents and counts Billie Eilish and John Mayer among his most vocal and ardent fans. Not to mention, he’s collaborated with everyone from Alessia Cara to Chinese superstar Zhao Lusi. His 2018 mixtape, Narrated For You, picked up a gold certification, while the 2020 debut album, These Two Windows, arrived to widespread critical acclaim from People, Stereogum, Billboard, and more. After a Global Pandemic, a year of soul-searching, and countless hours writing, he returns with his new single “The Way You Felt.”
Marc from O.A.R
For over 25 years, O.A.R. have embodied the kind of joyfully communal spirit that's transcendent for both artist and audience alike. Since forming in Maryland in 1996, the multi-platinum-selling band have merged their musical DNA into a free-flowing sound and exhilarating live show, repeatedly selling out legendary venues like Madison Square Garden thanks to their massively devoted community of fans. In a thrilling new chapter for the ever-evolving collective, O.A.R.'s tenth studio album The Arcade marks their most collaborative effort yet: a boldly unpredictable body of work that fully showcases the extraordinary expanse of their singular musicality.
"From the beginning, this band has been about people with different influences and different styles of playing coming together to tell stories through songs based on my lyrics," says O.A.R. lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Marc Roberge.
Over the years, O.A.R. have maintained one of the most dedicated fanbases in the world while amassing a multitude of platinum and gold certifications, selling out Madison Square Garden twice and filling Red Rocks Amphitheater over a dozen times, and performing at such high-profile events as the Special Olympics Opening Ceremony and the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration. Known for their rare level of autonomy in the music industry, they've also engaged in a great number of philanthropic endeavors, including establishing a scholarship at The Ohio State University and founding the Heard The World Fund (a nonprofit that's raised over $1.2 million in its efforts to support youth and education in underserved communities throughout the U.S.).
Pop star. Soul singer. Modern-day genre-blender. Old-school R&B Revivalist. Wyn Starks proudly celebrates his own diversity with 2021’s Black is Golden, a debut album rooted in the singer/songwriter’s versatile vocals, timely messages, and bold willingness to break new ground.
Black is Golden blends throwback grooves with contemporary moves, nodding not only to Starks’ past – including his upbringing in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he sang his first solos in church --- but also the innovative sounds he discovered upon relocating to Nashville. Singing a record deal with Curb Records after just six months in town, he began releasing songs that celebrating love, life, and inclusivity, earning nearly 2 million streams for his debut single, 2019’s “Circles.” From there, his sounds deepened to include tracks of justice and racial equality, all while maintaining his unique blend of vintage influences and progressive pop hooks.
Released in 2020, the EP Who I Am showcased an artist whose music as simultaneously personal and universal. One year later, Black is Golden continued that balancing track. The album is both a rallying cry for people of color and an inclusive call to the dance floor for all races, and its broad mix of music – including gospel ballads, rhythmic bangers, soul classics, and dazzling pop anthems – strengthen the album’s central message of diversity
