With a quiet demeanor, Snoh is deemed a current one to watch with hits including ‘Bad Things’ and ‘I Want you around’. It seems that this Scandinavian-born star is on the edge of hitting international stardom.

“Prince found me somewhere on the internet, he would never actually tell me where, but I think some music club very early on.
