About Aloe Blacc
Aloe Blacc is a singer, songwriter, producer, and activist born to Panamanian immigrants who settled in California. Aloe was raised on the musical stylings of salsa, merengue, and cumbia and eventually discovered artists like KRS-One, Donny Hathaway, Joni Mitchell, and James Taylor – inspiring his unique fusion of soul, folk, R&B, and pop. From crossover hit “I Need a Dollar” to the chart-toppers “Wake Me Up” and “The Man,” Aloe has stamped his name on the music scene globally.
In 2019, Avicii’s family honored their son’s wish to have Aloe Blacc’s vocals feature on the first track from Avicii’s posthumous album, TIM. The song “SOS” was released in April to a welcome response from Avicii fans worldwide and topped the charts in several countries around the world, hitting No. 1 on the US Dance Charts. Several other collaborations with hit producers followed, including works with David Guetta, Lost Frequencies, Gryffin, Flight Facilities, Young Bombs, Mesto, and Hellberg.
