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. Song by song, the LA-based artist is showing listeners that it’s okay to make genuine and emotion-driven music without having to slap a label on it.
