Emerging British singer-songwriter AEO releases his debut single Fight – a rousing and emotive Pop/Soul effort, beautifully crafted with burgeoning production duo OL Music (Rainy Milo, Skepta, Jake Isaac), which lands the South London native firmly on the radar, as one to watch for 2016.
The 22-year-old has been cutting his teeth on YouTube, via a string of stellar cover videos in 2014, which has caught the attention of many across the UK music landscape, and led to live performances at Acoustic Live, Uprise and The Gifted showcase, alongside the likes of Paigey Cakey, Mostack, and Ms Banks.
Inspired by great British vocalists such as Sam Smith, Kwabs and Lemar, AEO showcases his own brilliant vocals and songwriting dexterities, on this new offering, underpinned by a rich musical backdrop of piercing piano and guitar arrangements, minimalist drum patterns and thrilling choral melodies.
Speaking about the inspiration behind his single, the powerhouse said: “the lyrics to Fight are inspired by my pursuit of a career in music, which has spanned five years so far. I’ve had to fight for what I believe is my first love and passion – music. This song tells that story, and it’s a personal note to myself, telling me not to give up”.
