British artist AlienBlaze has announced her signing to Sumerian Records with the release of new song “Not Yours Never Was”. The first signing to the label’s recently formed, UK-based European operation Sumerian Records Europe Limited, AlienBlaze is also the first UK-based signing for the label.
Speaking about the signing, AlienBlaze stated:
I’m so honoured to be signed by Sumerian Records, I am so grateful to Ash Avildsen, who is quite honestly a true innovator and visionary. I look forward to what the future holds with Sumerian, making music for a new generation.
Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen comments:
AlienBlaze’s compelling songwriting and natural ability to fuse styles in an original way at such a young age are the true signs of a timeless star in the making. From the first moment I heard her, I knew we had to have her on Sumerian.
AlienBlaze is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter and lead guitarist who combines everything from dark alternative pop, grunge and emo, to rock and electronic elements.
We spoke to AlienBlaze last year, where she stated
I consider my music to be slightly genre-fluid because I take inspiration from many different sources.
I like my lyrics to be poetic and different, and hopefully, everyone can relate to the sentiment in the songs. She also stated that it would be a dream to work with Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon, who had previously tweeted his apprecation for her music.
In her school years, AlienBlaze spent most of her time at home through sickness, so spent hours and hours learning the electric guitar on her mum’s Gibson U2, wanting to play like her guitar inspirations Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains and Slash.
Blaze’s sense of alienation from her peers, is what inspired her to add the ‘alien’ part to her name as an artist.
