From a one bedroom apartment he shared with his family of six, Arizona raised singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Alex Aiono had already started amassing a following in the millions by the time he was 19 through touring, releasing his own independent EPs, producing and rearranging unique “flipped” versions of popular songs on YouTube, and hosting his own Radio Disney show.
Revealing soulful vocals, effortless charisma, and flawless production skills, it was Aiono’s viral take on Drake’s “One Dance” that exploded--receiving over 66 million views.
Discovered after busking on the Santa Monica Promenade at age 15, Aiono quickly found himself in the studio with EGOT winner John Legend, who co-wrote the title track on his 2013 indie debut EP, Young & Foolish, among other music industry beacons.
Devoted to sharing the creative journey with his fans, Aiono has been consistently releasing new songs since he first started recording–collaborating with everyone from Gryffn to T-Pain to Feder to DJ Felix Jaehn, with whom he had his first #1 with “Hot 2 Touch” in Germany.
With over 928 million YouTube views to date, the now 23-year-old is gaining more traction recording and releasing new songs, new mashups and videos through a variety of outlets to engage his social fan base following of 6.03 million YouTube subscribers, 2.2 million Facebook followers, 2.3 million Instagram followers, and nearly half a million Twitter followers.
In 2019, Aiono finished up his FUN23 tour, released his single “Unloving You” - which garnered over 1 million views on YouTube in its first week alone, and dropped 4 more songs during the filming of the newly announced Netflix film, Finding Ohana, where he will be starring in a leading role.
