Beautiful acoustic pop by Andreas Moe! This Year is Your SlowStart today!
Video for the track “This Year” by Andreas Moe from his EP with the same name. The EP was released Jan 18 2013 in Scandinavia and in March 2013 world wide.
Andreas Moe is a Swedish singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist.
In July 2011, Moe made his first feature on the Avicii track Fade into Darkness. The song reached number 4 in the Swedish Singles Chart (Sverigetopplistan) – and achieved further success in Poland & Netherlands. The song was also destined for UK release – before it became wrapped up in controversy – after Leona Lewis released a similar version of the track’s instrumental under the name Collide. Avicii later claimed that Lewis’s record label, Syco, had “stolen” his idea without his permission. Lewis and Avicii eventually settled in court, coming to an amicable mutual agreement to release the song as a collaboration between Lewis and Avicii – meaning that Fade into Darkness was dropped as a UK release.
In December 2011, Andreas Moe co-wrote and featured on the platinum selling John De Sohn track ‘Long Time’. The song, which charted at number 36 in the Swedish Singles Chart (Sverigetopplistan), was released again in April 2012 on Tiesto’s compilation album Club Life: Volume Two Miami - which charted worldwide, reaching Number 1 in the US Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums, Number 6 in the UK Compilation Chart, and Number 3 in the Swiss Albums Chart - as well as charting high in many other territories. Soon after, it was revealed that ‘Long Time’ had been picked up by LA Reid at Epic Records US as a single and was to be serviced to radio on 20 May 2012. The song is due to be released as a single in the US later on in the year.
In May 2012, Andreas Moe announced via his Facebook page that his first EP Collecting Sunlight was scheduled for digital release on the UK iTunes Store and also Spotify, on June 25, 2012. He has since received glowing reviews of the EP from around the world, including articles from famous American blogs Arjan Writes, and Music Is My Kingsize Bed. The EP was also released throughout Scandinavia through Sony Music Sweden - dropping in Sweden and Norway on June 29, 2012, and Finland and Denmark on July 2, 2012.
Andreas Moe is also set to have four songs, sung and co-written by himself, to feature in Noel Clarke’s latest film The Knot. The film is scheduled for UK release through Universal Pictures on October 5, 2012.
He is currently working with Tiesto, Fedde Le Grande and Avicii, and has two planned feature releases for 2012 with Eddie Theonick and Norman Doray.
Avicii’s record ‘Last Dance’, to be released in September, features Andreas Moe as the vocals.
Andreas Moe also enjoys a successful songwriting career in and around Europe. He co-wrote the first single ’Won’t You Stay’ for runner up of The Voice of Holland, Chris Hordijk which peaked at number 6 in the Dutch Top 40., as well as his follow up single ‘Jump From A Waterfall’. He also co-wrote the first single ’Awake’ for runner up of The Voice of Belgium, Silke Mastbooms – which reached number 2 in the Belgian Top 50 charts (Ultratop 50).
In May 2012, Made in Chelsea star Caggie Dunlop wrote on her Twitter account that she had been in a writing session with Andreas Moe.
In August 2012, Andreas Moe received his first number 1 at a songwriter with Dutch duo Nick En Simon with the song ‘Alles Overwinnen’ in the Dutch Singles charts, as well as receiving his first Platinum record for his co-write and feature with John De Sohn, ‘Long Time’.
