2017 will be an exciting year for Chicago born, L.A based singer-songwriter Aleem as he brings his acoustic-guitar-driven brand of R&B-tinged pop in the UK with the single Inside Out.
In his late teens he began working with Grammy Award-winning producer Craig Bauer. Now, after joining Fifth Harmony for an acclaimed live arena tour of Europe in 2016, Aleem is back and ready to release his music here in the UK.
The single Inside Out is a synth-laced, slow-building and cinematic arrangement which perfectly escalate the song’s emotional intensity. “‘Inside Out’ came from being in a relationship where I felt like I was the one bringing everything down, but I couldn’t control it,” says Aleem.
The track features on his E.P. Open Letters made with producers Ryan Stewart (Carly Rae Jepsen, Owl City) and Jon Levine (Selena Gomez, Cher Lloyd). It finds Aleem taking a storytelling-like approach to his lyrics and co-wrote all of the album’s ten tracks, working with such songwriters as Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Jessie J) and Anjulie (Lady Gaga,Nicki Minaj).
Having spent 2016 establishing himself as one of the most exciting up and coming pop artists around, now the rising-star continues to develop his trademark trail of what he describes as “deep and descriptive stories that the listener can immerse themselves into.”
2017 is set to be the year Aleem’s music will captivate us all.
