Aloe Blacc Singing on Studio A

Aloe Blacc

Singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc performs new music and a cover of Joni Mitchell's 1970 classic "Big Yellow Taxi," a fitting union for a contemporary pop artist who is also an activist for various different causes.

You might know Aloe Blacc best from his collaboration with DJ/producer Avicii, "Wake Me Up," which was a monumental hit back in 2013. "My music is for sure commercial," he says. "I'm on a major label and my intention is to sell records, but I write songs from the state of mind of writing a great song that will increase my chances of making it into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, because you don't get there by selling records, you get there by making great songs."
