Isak Ocke Danielson, singer and songwriter from Sweden, born and raised in Brännemysten, Hovas (Gothenburg).
Above all, he loves jazz, singing sad songs, he especially likes cackling chickens (that are real live chickens, non crispy baked McDonald's menu). He likes to compose on the piano, altough it stands in room of both sisters.
Isak first came to public attention by taking part in X Factor, Sweden, 2012. According to viewers' choice poll for performances, he finished 3rd after passing through ten rounds in Swedish TV4.
For opening performance at the ten-week TV series X Factor, he chose a song by Gotye 'Somebody That I Used To Know', the finale was provided by David Guetta's 'Titanium'.
In 2013 Isak has requested to enter into the promotion event 'Teen Hoot' in London. Teen Hoot UK act as global stage for the best up and coming teen artists around the globe, a small initial step on the career ladder. Teen Hoot was founded in Nashville, TN, USA.
On November 30, 2013 his time had come, Isak took Teen Hoot's stage by storm in front of an enthusiastic audience in London, and became public favourite straightaway. He performed 'Domino' (Jessie J), 'Wrecking Ball' (Miley Cyrus), just like 'Say Something' from A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera.
Since his first public appearance two years have passed (an eternity in adolescence). But 72 hours after New Year's Eve, on January 3, 2014, his debut single 'Long Live This Love' was out! And - straightaway - the second single 'Say Something' followed close behind, both released by Record Company TEN, Sony Music Entertainment Sweden AB.
Almost on the same day, he released one year later, on January 13, 2015, the single 'Falling Into You', followed on the heels of his debut EP 'Volume One' on March 26, 2015.
Single 'Remember' out September 1, 2016.
Isak announces next album 'Volume Two'.
Isak does not allow himself to rest for a moment, he works tirelessly for new songs. So he even released 2 singles in June 2017, first 'Jennie' on June 8, shortly followed by the next 'I Don't See You' on June 29.
In April 2017, Danielson's track "Ending" was featured in a choreography video posted by Maddie Ziegler and in September 2017 the song was also featured on American program So You Think You Can Dance and again in the American television series Cloak & Dagger. These events saw an increase in his streaming numbers around the world.
In April 2018, Danielson released "Broken", the lead single from his forthcoming debut studio album. Danielson said was inspired by a friend who had experienced a number of sexual assaults.
In July 2018, Danielson released "Always", which was followed by "I'll Be Waiting" in September and "I'm Falling in Love" in October. On 19 October 2018, Danielson released his debut studio album Yours. Yours peaked at number 27 on the Swedish charts.
In January 2019, Danielson released "Power" which was followed by "Bleed Out" on 5 March. Both tracks were the lead singles from his third EP, titled Run to You, which was released on 29 March 2019.
In September 2019, Danielson released "Silence", his first on new IOD label, after signing with Universal Music Group.
In April 2020, Danielson released his second studio album, Remember to Remember Me. The album title is a message to the listener to follow along on his personal journey, where no topic is too delicate to explore. In the songs "Light Up", "Silence" and "Religion", Danielson reflects on his own relationship with anxiety and his message that no one should ever feel alone in their struggle with anxiety.
Per Magnusson from Aftonbladet gave the album 3 out of 5 saying "Isak Danielson makes pop music so emotional and sad that it almost forgets to breathe" and that "he sings well beyond his age".
