The Montreal-based half-Japanese and half-French artist architects a new vision for pop and R&B uplifted by interdimensional soundscapes and irresistibly infectious hooks. After making waves on La Voix in Quebec, he gained traction with his six-track self-titled EP, playing every instrument personally and generating 10 million-plus streams. He reached viral impact with the “IG Comments Song” in addition to clocking 15 million streams by featuring on “Julia” by GAMPER & DADONI. Soran maintained his momentum in 2021 with “Bottled Up.” Since then, he truly takes flight on a series of singles for Universal Music Canada and his 2022 debut EP, Space Boy, an electronic pop album, with more than 1,5M streams. Apart from his career as a singer-songwriter, Soran collaborates in the writing and production of several local and international projects including Alessia Cara, Geoffroy, Preston Pablo to name a few. His song Everybody Wants you performed by Johnny Orlando rose the top #1 on Canadian radio and earned him a gold plaque from de Canadian Music Publishers Association. Upper Hand, co-written, produced and performed with Zach Zoya, allows him to climb again to the top radio charts.
