From the small town of Haugesund, Noway, Espen Fernando knows what it means to stand out. The Norwegian-Peruvian queer artist/songwriter found his powerful voice on his own. Both quite literally and metaphorically, coming from a family with no musicians or songwriters whatsoever.
Artists like Charli XCX, Troye Sivan and Lana del Rey helped Espen Fernando discover himself and his love for individuality. He loves the hook driven, intense and eccentric feel of Hyper Pop artists like Dorian Electra and Caroline Polachek, but also listens to vulnerable and rhythmic songwriters like SZA and Frank Ocean. Espen combines these two worlds to make the perfect future pop vibes.
Fernando makes playful and quirky pop music for people who want to feel like they belong. This is music for people to feel empowered and free to express themselves, the kind of music to feel confident walking under the streetlights too.
Espen writes about identity, confidence and self discovery. A powerful storyteller, combining his music with unique visuals and stage performances. Espen is currently working on his debut EP, set to be out early next year.
