Emmy-nominated singer/songwriter Axel Mansoor has lived in five countries across four continents but currently calls Los Angeles home. His music features themes of transformation and self-love, as well as an underlying message that one need not rely on others to feel validated.
Authentic, bold, and honest, “Wasted My Love” marked a vibrant 2017 debut for Mansoor. The single reached #5 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart, received radio play from Jason Kramer of KCRW, and garnered praise from several influential music blogs. Follow up singles included “Out of My Head” and “Talk To Me”, the former of which was a Hype Machine #1 and the latter of which was accompanied by an innovative vertical music video premiered by BuzzFeed on Snapchat to over 7 million viewers.
In 2018, Axel was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Best Original Song in a Drama for his work on ABC’s General Hospital. He also released his debut EP “Somerset”, which consists of five self-produced stripped-down acoustic tracks. So far in 2019, Axel has shared his latest single “The Other Side” and celebrated the release with a series of shows in New York, including a performance at the Billboard Lounge at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. His latest single “Busy” arrived in April with a headline show at the esteemed Moroccan Lounge. Song by song, Axel is showing listeners that it’s okay to make genuine and emotion-driven music without having to slap a label on it.
