Introducing Norway Newcomer “Alexandru”

For many months in a row it seemed that Australia was the breeding ground for amazing new young talent who were quickly rising to stardom and making waves in the music industry.

Many of those youngsters are now signed with record labels and enjoying an exciting career in music.

It’s now the Country of Norway who has put us on notice that they too have exceptionally talented youngsters who are fast becoming household names in their part of the country. This blog alone has already featured three this year.

So who is this Norwegian newcomer who we have been hearing so much about from Stormbreaker Inc.?

                His name is Alexandru!

From a small town in Norway comes Alexandru Gros Grindvoll.  

Alexendru is everything you look for in a new young artist. This Eleven year old sports a charming smile, great looking hair, fantastic personality and amazing vocal skills. 

After being spotted by the producer from Stormbreaker Inc. on YouTube, followed up by short audition video of Alexandru singing ”Price Tag”, Alexandru and family flew out to London, England to record two songs and create some promotional videos.

When Stormbreaker shared with me the private showing of his audition tape and a sample of his yet to be produced single, I immediately wanted to know more about this new youngster from Norway.

His mother tells me,

“When I think of Alexandru, I almost always have a lump in the throat. I consider myself so lucky to be the mother of a boy so full of life, energetic, kind, wise, courteous, empathetic and very sensitive that I almost lost during delivery. Alexandru is so many things. He is first and foremost, a good son, loving and caring grandson a kind big brother and so much more.

We are already proud of who he is.”                                          “Mom”

Like many boys Alexandru was not sure what he wanted to be when he grew up.  When asked by his parents he first replied that he would like to be King. Then he thought maybe he would become a cook, followed by a doctor. However, recently it has been all about music.

His parents realized very early that Alexandru was musically inclined. His mother recalls that Alexandru left his walker, retrieved some wooden spoons from a kitchen drawer and proceeded to rhythmically beat on his walker in time to the music being played.

MUSIC MAKES PEOPLE HAPPY AND I JUST WANT TO BE A PART OF IT”                                                                             “Alexandru”

As early as 1 year old he would charm people with his singing while being pushed along by his mother in a shopping cart through the mall.

Alexandru also developed an early interest in the piano when he was just two years old having received a mini keyboard.   He would perform “Full Show”, “Baa Baa Little Lamb” to “Josephine and the Chipmunks” (Norwegian children’s songs) and an endless repertoire were enjoyed by his family. Of course this gradually led to more intricate pieces from classics such as Johan Strauss to Edvard Grieg, just to name a few.

Since his first year of school he has been enrolled in a music class where he currently takes both singing lessons and piano lessons. His parents tell me that they are so fortunate to have this type of musical education provided for their children in their community and are also grateful for the talented teachers that are employed there.

Because Alexandru enjoys performing he is often asked to sing or play the piano for various local events. He says that “Music makes people happy and he wants to be a part of it.”

Alexandru is the boy who at age three could surprise kindergarten teachers by giving out compliments about the blouse they were wearing!  This says a lot about his warm personality and social skills.  It’s no wonder that he has so many wonderful friends among adults and children alike.

The fact that he was elected as student representative for his class shows that he shows strong character and exhibits great confidence.

In addition to his musical skills Alexandru is also a very good student, telling us that his favorite subjects are English and Gym Class. Of course like most children his age, he likes computers and games.

His hobbies are: BMXing, skateboarding, snowboarding, singing and playing the piano.

He lists his favorites as follows;

  • Movie: ——— “Home Alone”.
  • Books: ———“Horror–” The Barking Ghost”
  • Things to do:–“Jumping on their trampoline doing back-flips.
  • Enjoys: ——– “Magicians”
  • Artists: ———“Eminem, AC/DC, Dragon Force, Johan Strauss, Taio Cruz,      Katy Perry, Adele, Iron Maiden, Bruno Mars, Greenday, Erik & Chris.

In addition to this activity list, Alexandru also enjoys a variety of Winter Sports.  I suppose that’s good thing since he lives in a part of the world where Snow is abundant.

This week Alexandru will be releasing his full version of his new Christmas song and his Music Video, so be watching this site for the Big Debut of his very first single.

Also in addition to today’s article we will publish on Sunday a transcribed personal interview which was recently conducted along with a sneak peak at Alexandru’s Debut Single.

“It was a pleasure to have Alexandru come over to work with me in London. He is a very hard working kid and didn’t complain once. Alexandru has a great personality and is a really kind soul. I’m sure people will hear that when he sings”

  1. Favorite artists ” ….AC/DC, Iron Maiden …” quite impressive from someone so young.  His cover on  Jesse J – Price tag shows a lot of promise and I am really interested in the songs  that he will be releasing in the future. Trough the years I have followed some artist working with Stormbreaker Music and really liked the songs they put out…without a doubt talent and devotion always give results.
