Talented young Norwegian artist Sonny Alven is ready to release his new single, ‘Wasted Youth’. The single features vocalist Cal, and is out now. The track is the second release off his forthcoming Girls EP.
‘Wasted Youth’ is built on warm chords and a soft piano melody, whilst Cal’s vocals allude to the importance of making each moment count. A feel-good piece of music, the single bears the hallmarks of Sonny Alven’s popular production style – one which has secured the artist over 1.8 million
unique monthly Spotify users and a Norwegian Grammy nomination
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 year’s 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 a 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 over 28 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.

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.
