Icelandic rock band KALEO – led by frontman / songwriter JJ Julius Son - has quickly risen to the upper ranks of contemporary alternative rock with the global success of their 2016 breakthrough album, A/B.
Recorded in Nashville alongside acclaimed producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, James Bay), with additional contributions from Mike Crossey, Arnar Guðjónsson and the band, A/B went on to be certified Gold in the U.S. with its trio of hit singles - the chart-topping, Platinum-certified “Way Down We Go,” Gold-certified follow-up “All The Pretty Girls”, and Grammy-nominated “No Good” - garnering both commercial success and critical acclaim. Known for their electrifying live performances, KALEO completely sold out their first U.S. headline tour and was a standout at high profile music festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo. Amassing over 820 million global streams, 27 international certifications, and countless sold out headline shows spanning London to Moscow, KALEO has proven to be a worldwide phenomenon. With the band recently wrapping up their nearly non-stop touring schedule in support of A/B over the past 2+ years, Julius Son has returned to the studio and is currently working on the much anticipated follow-up, due out in 2019.
