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”

Very often I’m introduced to a young artist through e-mail from supporters. Others I meet through YouTube, MySpace, and even other blog sites.  Such was the case for Chad who was first introduced on my good friend Tommy’s site Stars2come.

Recently I had the opportunity to catch up with Chad and his family and discovered that Fifteen year old Chad Clemens is the youngest of 3 siblings. His older brother Blake (21) is a Junior at Virginia Tech while his sister Carley (19) is a sophomore at Penn State.  His interest in music was first noticed by his parents at a very early age. Whether it was in the car or at home listening to the stereo, Chad, just a toddler, would rock his head in sync to the pulsating rhythmic beat he heard coming from the speakers. One evening at the age of about 10, Chad caught the attention of his parents when they heard him singing to himself from another room and they thought to themselves, “He has a really good voice.”

As a youngster, Chad had a natural beat that you just can’t teach, and he loved to tap along to songs he heard on the radio with anything he held in his hands.  At 11, Chad’s parents bought him his first drum set and after just a few lessons, he was performing with his local church band.

Chad’s choice of cover songs has been strongly influenced through the interest that his brother and sister have in music. When home from school, they often recommend a song they have heard saying to Chad, “You have to hear this awesome song”, then play it to him on their computers or iPods.
