Aleks Grey has today released his new single titled ’28’. Aleks is an artist we’ve had the privilege of following for a while, since our inception actually, and it’s such a pleasure for him to today remind me of how old I am by, after being with us for over 8 years, telling us he is only 28 😉 .
All kidding aside, Aleks has truly grown as an artist. More weathered and musically honed into that style he has made for himself, he takes that and makes it personal for us all. This makes him a musical poet laureate. He has that way about him that makes him memorable and resonates in our minds and hearts with his music and message. Happy birthday, Aleks! We still love your music.

About Aleks Grey & ’28’
With ’28’ Aleks Grey tries to capture the essence of growing older. For so long you are just in your twenties, but all of a sudden the big 30 is creeping in. All of a sudden, there’s such a huge difference in where everyone’s at in their lives; some are still studying, some have just bought a little flat, while others have steady jobs, kids, a big house, getting married etc. The people you thought you were going through this life with, have drifted apart. Ex-es got new boyfriends and for better or for worse, turning 28 is not what you planned it out to be.
Aleks Grey has had airtime and listings on radio, both in his home country Norway and around the world, and he’s had positive feedback in international magazines and blogs. In 2022, he released the single “Five Minutes” with Iselin (the singer in Alan Walker’s “Faded”), which was nationally listed on Norway’s largest radio channel and received lots of press. They were interviewed on one of the best shows on radio in Norway and written about in the international blog Alfitude. Aleks’ EP “Souls” was nominated as “The Best Solo Record of The Year” by LMS in England and was one of the 25 best indie albums of 2015 in the American magazine Jammerzine. In 2016 he received The Song Link Award for his single “Unstoppable”, a song that was also used on a BBC Radio 4 show.
Aleks has played all over Norway and had several concerts in Germany. With his band, he played for BBC Meyerside and did a double session for the largest youth magazine in Great Britain, The Student Pocket Guide.
