SWEDISH SINGER-SONGWRITER BROTHER LEO’S DEBUT SINGLE “STRANGERS ON AN ISLAND” PRODUCED BY GRAMMY-WINNING DJ & PRODUCER FATBOY SLIM
Meet Swedish singer-songwriter Brother Leo. After stirring up major buzz with multiple international hits in his home country, GRAMMY® Award-nominated Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer Ola Svensson introduces his new alter ego Brother Leo. Named after Svensson’s more confident and free childhood imaginary twin, Brother Leo officially makes his worldwide debut by releasing the single and music video“Strangers On An Island”.

Produced by the legendary Fatboy Slim, the track coasts from sunny verses into a bold and bright chant —“Oh I, wish I was stuck, stuck on an island, with you”—upheld by tropical drums before wild turntable scratching. The cinematic music video, which premiered on NME, was directed by Mary Clerté and gleefully brings that spirit to life with its whacky beachside vignettes. It has all the ingredients of a summer smash!

The dynamic nature of the music aligns with his rather unbelievable story. Long before his emergence as Brother Leo, mom forced her son born Ola to participate in boys’ choir and take piano lessons when all he “really cared about was football.” At only 17, he played professional soccer for former UEFA-cup team Trelleborgs FF. After singing during a school function, friends clamored for him to audition for Pop Idol. Despite his reluctance, he ended up landing a deal in his native Sweden as a result. Unlocking a quirky, clever, and catchy signature style, Olaachieved a string of number ones off the back of his Swedish debut before making his bones as an in-demand songwriter with cuts for gnash, Hailee Steinfeld, Akon, and more under his given name. He assumed the identity of Brother Leo in 2018 and began writing and recording with Mark Ralph [Clean Bandit, Years & Years, Jax Jones], Coffee [Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber], Dan Grech [Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, George Ezra], and more.
Now, Brother Leo invites everyone to join him on an “island” of his own design. Get to know him!
