The young singer/songwriter Jonas Alaska is known for his strong, personal lyrics, combined with clever, and often shamelessly catchy tunes.
Alaska had great success in Norway with his gold selling debut album, for which he was nominated for 3 awards, and took home the Norwegian Grammy for “Best New Act” in 2011.
His second album, If Only As A Ghost was released in 2013, again to much praise from the reviewers. The first single I Saw You Kid went top 5 in the radio charts, and the album entered #4 in the Norwegian Billboard.
On the new album Younger, Alaska’s exploreing a slightly rougher and less organic sound. The first single Summer is a good example of this.
Jonas Alaska has toured Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Netherlands in addition to Norway, where he has played most of the biggest festivals and performed on many of the most influencal TV shows. Alaska has simply positioned himself as one of the most exciting new musicians to come out of the Norwegian music scene the last few years.
