Since the beginning of his music career, AFSHEEN has always been a behind-the-scenes kind of producer. Working with industry tastemakers across all genres, including Kygo, Madonna, Chris Brown, Selena Gomez, and Armin van Buuren to name a few, AFSHEEN has made a name for himself among music’s A-list elite at a young age.
Now, the talented producer wants to take a more personal direction in his career — an album branded with his signature style is currently in the works, and his newest release ‘Be Happy’ is a sneak peak of what to expect. His familiar futuristic pop synths are recognizable from the start, quickly attaining a groovier element with the addition of bass guitar strums and trumpeting. The track’s quirky and unique vibe assures you’ll be happy by the time it’s over.
Having drastic changes in his upbringing has humbled AFSHEEN’s perspective on life, which in turn has translated through his music. Escaping religious persecution in Iran for the Bay Area’s greener pastures during his teen years was a huge culture shock, but was also why AFSHEEN began to rely on music as a universal language. His journey has led him to work with many names (and friends) in the industry like Lindsey Stirling, and even opening for Kygo.
“Music has saved and shaped my life. I have met the most incredible people in my life because of music. I get to eat because of music, I get to interact with incredible people because of music. I met the love of my life because of music…” AFSHEEN says while reflecting on the process of making his album.
As a name that is increasingly beginning to resonate with A-listers in the music industry, AFSHEEN is stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight to claim the attention he deserves.
‘Be Happy’ is the first release off AFSHEEN’s upcoming album, Happy Tunes, set for release November 11.
