DO YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE? ALX VELIZ UNVEILS U+ME VIDEO
06 SEPTEMBER 2016 (Toronto, ON) – Toronto-based, global breakout artist Alx Veliz today reveals the video to his current single, U+ME. Directed by Aaron A (Alessia Cara, Nelly Furtado), the stunning visual piece is available now at vevo.com, and fans can see exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and on-set interview with the internationally chart-topping pop performer/songwriter/producer via Entertainment Tonight Canada. Veliz has been making and producing music since childhood but was until recently focusing on behind-the-scenes creation when a keen-eared label scout urged him back to centre stage. Soon after, Alx Veliz was inking global distribution deals and earning gold and platinum awards far from home. Veliz’s borderless sound reflects his home in multicultural Toronto, drawing on diverse influences from samba and salsa to reggae, hip-hop, and the king of pop, Michael Jackson. This savvy combination of dance floor-filling pop and smooth grooves underpins a sound with substance, setting Veliz apart from other artists in his genre. On stage, Alx Veliz is just as comfortable surrounded by a full band as he is with a DJ, or even solely a guitar to accompany his velvet-smooth vocals. It’s about sharing something unforgettable. “Every time I perform, I leave everything on the stage,” he says. U+ME is the follow-up single to Veliz’s 30 million-streamed, Platinum-selling, Top 10 radio smash Dancing Kizomba. Both tracks are from his debut EP, Love Has No Language, released last April via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
