Soul siren shimmers in her Australian headline debut

She’s been mentored by Prince, sampled by Drake, and collaborated with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Tyler, the Creator. Now, with a trio of hit solo albums and a pair of Grammy nominations to her name, Swedish-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Snoh Aalegra is set to make her Australian live debut at Vivid LIVE, playing the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall for one unmissable night.

Born in Uppsala, Sweden to Iranian parents, Snoh Aalegra landed an artist development deal with Sony at the tender age of 13, and soon drew comparisons to singers such as Sade and Amy Winehouse with her smoky vocal style. Aalegra eventually signed with Kanye West’s mentor, No I.D., in 2013, guested on tracks for Common, and became a protegé of Prince, after the legendary artist discovered her music and reached out personally. In 2017, Aalegra released her full-length debut Feels, which featured collaborations with Vince Staples and Logic, and followed it up with the US R&B smash Ugh, Those Feels Again in 2019With production from Pharrell Williams and Tyler, the Creator, Aalegra’s dreamy 2021 album Temporary Highs in the Violent Skies proved to be her most successful to date, earning Grammy nods for Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance for the single “Lost You”, a track that JAY-Z named as one of his favourites. In 2022, Aalegra toured with pop superstar The Weeknd, and in 2023 she dropped the sultry new tracks “Be My Summer” and “Sweet Tea”. 

A smouldering soul show that’s sure to heat up the coming winter.
