Aloe Blacc – bio

Aloe Blacc

Aloe Blacc is a singer/songwriter who crossed over from the indie scene in 2010 with his hit single, “I Need a Dollar.” He subsequently released his major-label debut album Lift Your Spirit on XIX Recordings/Interscope Records where it debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album. The release followed Blacc’s collaboration as vocalist and co-writer on well-known DJ/producer Avicii’s 2013 track “Wake Me Up,” a song that hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Hot Dance Club Songs and Dance/Electronic Songs charts, as well as topping charts in more than 100 countries. Blacc’s single “The Man” topped the charts and sold more than 3 million singles. Blacc spent the summer of 2014 on a U.S. tour with Bruno Mars in support of Lift Your Spirit and made his acting debut in “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic. In early 2016, Aloe Blacc released “Let The Games Begin,” which he wrote and produced for the film Race, a Focus Features biopic about Olympic hero Jesse Owens. Also at that time he teamed up with Grammy Award-winning artist/producer Zedd to co-write and record the smash single “Candyman,” used by M&M’s to commemorate their 75th Anniversary. Aloe Blacc is now writing and recording for his next album release. To learn more about Aloe Blacc, visit and follow him on Twitter (@aloeblacc).
