Axel Jansson Releases Audio For Debut Single, Shine
Axel Jansson ‘Shine’ 1st April 2016
‘Shine takes a look back at the carefree nature of childhood and is an observation on how easy and careless life was back in those days and how it can sometimes seem harder and harder as you begin to face the reality of adulthood.’ Axel Jansson
Shine is the debut release from Swedish born East-Londoner Axel Jansson, produced by James D Bell (Aerosmith/ACDC/Squeeze/ELO). Axel has performed all over the world and supported artists such as Turin Breaks & Jo Hamilton. Axel Jansson’s debut release Shine includes two additional tracks; Out of the Blue and Two of a Kind which deliver lush melodies, passionate vocals, a pinch of alternative rock and a huge dose of bold pop.
In 2015, Axel performed in Cannes during the world famous Midem Festival and gained positive feedback from publishers and booking agents. He went on to play Indie Week Europe 2015 in Manchester and Livestock Festival before embarking on a tour of Sweden. Upon returning to the UK, Axel was delighted to be the only unsigned artist to take part in the Autumn semester of the Coffee House Sessions. The tour kicked off October and Jansson performed in 10 cities and 24 University coffee lounges over a two-week period.
"I saw Axel playing a set during MIDEM this year where he really impressed with his catchy melodic songs and punchy lyrics. He's definitely one to watch." David Stark, Songlink
"Axel Jansson possesses a unique and very entertaining vocal sound. Similarly, his song-writing is original but most accessible.” Peter Knight Jr. Catalyst Music Publishing Ltd.
‘Shine’ is available on iTunes on April 1st 2016.
