Featured Artist PÁLL ÓSKAR 

 FancyJ London ©2016 All Rights Reserved * This feature bio and all included contents, are the sole property of Páll Óskar aka Paul Oscar. 
  

 His name is Páll Óskar Pop Singer, Performer, Actor, with an amazing story that started in Reykjavík, Iceland and Ended up in New York City, now he has taken the world by storm leaving his mark as a pop star extraordinaire! 
I am honored to feature such an inspiring, flamboyant, brilliant star that took his adversities and turned them into an unforgettable ballad. I am a huge fan of his work but more a fan of all he has overcome. 

  

 Paul Oscar’s family encouraged his musical talent, his parents did not get along with each other, and he was bullied by his schoolmates. Paul Oscar recalled: “My nickname was Little Palli, and Palli was chubby, nerdy, someone who never got jokes right, who was afraid of other men.” At age 13, he realized that he found men attractive, finally came out to his family at age 16.

  
 “For the first day, there was nice talk of acceptance, though his father did raise his voice, but after a few days there was a disheartening silence. However, his mother was supportive. She said: “If Páll has the talent to fall in love, he should nurture that talent. Páll has as much a right to sit down at my table with his partner as anybody else and their partner.”

  
 

Paul Oscar rediscovered his voice at the age of 18, singing bass with the Hamrahlíð college choir for two years. In 1990 he won a talent contest for his college; later that year at the time of his graduation, he played Frank-N-Furter to great success in the college’s production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Around the same time, he began appearing in Drag Shows at a notorious Reykjavík nightclub. After the club closed, he became a radio jockey on independent radio station FM 90.9 He also appeared in a film As in Heaven in 1992. 

  
 

In the summer of 1993, Paul Oscar left Iceland for New York City where he met fellow Icelanders Jóhann Jóhannsson and Sigurjón Kjartansson who were then on tour with the heavy metal band HAM. Paul Oscar became their groupie and at about the same time released his first album Groove. 

  
 

Paul Oscar made his debut as a solo artist and formed his own recording company, Paul Oscar Productions (P.O.P.) releasing an album of ballads entitled Palli which he personally arranged, performed and produced. It became the best selling album in Iceland of 1995. This was followed by his album Seif in 1996. 

  
 

Paul Oscar was Iceland’s entrant in the annual Eurovision Song Contest in 1997. He performed the song My Final Dance, which he co-wrote, backed by four women dressed in latex playing suggestively on a sofa behind him. 

Although the song only reached 20th place in a field of 25, the daring presentation attracted quite a lot of attention, especially amongst gay audiences, which made Paul Oscar from that point on known world wide. 

  
 

Regarding his personal life, Paul Oscar has said: “I have a lot of work still to do. I have had three relationships that, from the outside, looked picture perfect, I suppose…But they were actually quite rotten and false, abusive to me. What I am doing now is learning to fall in love with myself.”

Featured Artist~ JANANI

 FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved
This blog post is a bio feature representing the Alternative Rock Band JANANI  
 JANANI is an alternative rock band from Orlando, Florida. The band was formed by Janani Vaidyanathan and Erick Campos in January of 2011. In early 2014, JANANI released their very first extended play titled, Three Step System EP. The Three Step System EP was produced by Brett Hestla, former member of Creed. 

  
  The EP spawned moderate success for the band, most notably with their hit single, “Where Was I?”. Kat Coffin of Examiner.com wrote, “Songs don’t get much catchier than ‘Where Was I.’ JANANI’s spunky vocals are full of attitude as they cascade over a steady walking blues rhythm…” and “[Janani’s] strong voice takes lyrical delivery beyond heartfelt to a more character driven place conveying toughness, anger, bitterness, passion and a host of other feelings…”. 

  JANANI released their hit single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), in May of 2015. Shortly after it’s release, the single won the Akademia Award for Best Alternative Rock song. ExposedVocals.com wrote, “[Run (Pick Up The Gun)’s] killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It’s a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” 

  
Their music has been heard on radio stations such as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM and Orlando’s own XL 106.7 FM. It has also been featured in DIRECTTV’s documentary, Gone Until December. JANANI’s latest single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), will be the theme song of the upcoming television series, Hit Women.

     

  From over two-hundred competing bands, JANANI was selected to compete in the top 8 for the Hard Rock Rising Orlando competition, where they performed in front of a panel of judges including Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC. Of over 70 acts in the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa, JANANI walked away as one of five bands selected to be a Hard Rock Energy Ambassador.

  
  JANANI is currently number 1 on ReverbNation Alternative Orlando charts and collectively has over 36,000 fans spanning over 5 different social networks.

  
SHOUTOUT Straight from JANANI ~ Sending big love ❤️ to our Manager Ranelle Golden, all our fans, and of course FancyJ London, YOU ROCK!
Thank you, JANANI …..OH, by the way I am a major fan myself! ~FancyJ
