Lulleaux, Aukoustics and Anna Graceman have stars in their eyes
apr 08, 2021
Anthemic pop made for the big stage, Rotterdam’s Lulleaux provides the X factor with US vibes supplier Aukoustics and American singer-songwriter Anna Graceman, whose Southern-styled twang comes through a dazzling array of synths destined for the limelight. The mood divided between late night beach party, being beamed up to a higher level and a grand finale of EDM and tropical house, ‘Stars in My Eyes’ bids to become a prize playlist pick.
“Six years ago, having taught myself to produce music in the summer, I made my first real attempt at uploading a track”, Lulleaux recalls. “It was a bootleg of a track by Anna, which gained lots of support by Kygo and Robin Schulz – the ball definitely started rolling from that point on. Six years later and now I’ve a new record with Anna – ‘Stars In My Eyes’ is the icing on the cake”.
The pilot of the multi-million streamed ‘Contact’ and something of a collaborative specialist, Lulleaux has consistently caused a chain reaction with releases on Be Yourself, Spinnin’ and Hexagon. His impact extending to collaborations with artists in the likes of Sam Feldt, and remixes of Tiësto and Benni Benassi.
Another knowing all about huge streaming numbers, Boston’s Aukoustics can also call himself a connoisseur of collaborations, notably adding his expertise to the Galantis & Dolly Parton track “Faith (feat. Mr. Probz)”, as well as putting his own spin on Frank Sinatra’s standard “Fly Me to the Moon”. Rappers NLE Choppa, Bhad Bhabie and Kash Doll have also come in for the American’s A-game production touch.
Influenced by Adele, Amy Winehouse and Heart’s Ann Wilson, Nashville-based singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and label owner Anna Graceman is no stranger to the spotlight, seen by millions on national television through appearances on The Ellen Show, America’s Got Talent and Songland (appearing alongside Bebe Rexha), and holding down Las Vegas residencies in rubbing shoulders with The Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves and Beck. The chemistry behind ‘Stars in My Eyes’ has already been proven – Lulleaux’s mid-00s remix of Graceman’s ‘Words’ has amassed over two and a half million streams to date.
