About Aleks Grey & “Unstoppable”
“Unstoppable”, Aleks Grey’s follow up single to May’s ‘Feel Alive’, delivers another dose of the feelgood anthemic pop we’ve come to expect from the singer songwriter.
Born in Volda, Norway, acutely shy Aleks had never dared to sing publicly until one of his best friends forced him to audition for a part in a musical. Aleks was successful and a embarked on a successful career in musicals Rent, West Side Story and Les Miserables, with leading roles in each one. He also went on tour with Fame – the musical.
Alongside his career on the stage, Aleks founded his band The Last Province with a group of friends. They played several festivals including Malakoff in 2011 and had their first single ‘Lullaby’ playlisted on Norway’s national radio station NRK P1.
2013 saw Aleks start his solo project, immediately securing airplay at NRK P1, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing. In July 2013 Aleks played Malakoff Rock Festival and won a grant for best young act.
A move to Liverpool in 2013 allowed Aleks to connect with his current backing band. His singles have gained worldwide airplay and huge critical acclaim, establishing him as a very exciting emerging artist.
