As the driving creative force behind KALEO, one of Iceland’s most successful musical exports, JJ Julius Son generally looks forward – to the next recording session, the next gig, the next source of inspiration. So, when asked to look back, he is truly moved by how successful and epic the journey has already been, just one album deep into his career on the international stage.
In just three short years, KALEO has scored a trifecta of global hits, including the churning Number 1 alternative track, “Way Down we Go;” received a Grammy nomination for the hard-hitting strutter, “No Good;” and watched its first album for Atlantic Records, 2016’s A/B, go gold.
The band has toured the world, from sweaty nightclubs filled with diehard fans to mammoth crowds at Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. Every bit of that lived experience is packed into his next big step: KALEO’s latest album, “Surface Sounds.”
KALEO’s Harrisburg show is the fifth HU Presents Summer Concert Series show announced this year at Riverfront Park in partnership with the City of Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Clair Global, PNC Bank, and Troegs Independent Brewing.
