As Years & Years, Olly Alexander has become one of the world's most trailblazing modern pop stars. Across two hugely successful albums to date, the singer, actor, and cultural vanguard has earned 5 Brit Award nominations, sold-out numerous global tours, and played triumphant homecoming shows at London's O2 and Wembley Arena. Along the way, Olly has also become a fearless, once-in-a-generation voice on important discussions around mental health, and issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. This has been marked by a number of standout moments, ranging from Alexander's defiant speech at Glastonbury in 2016 in the wake of events in Orlando to his BBC Documentary 'Olly Alexander: Growing Up Gay,' plus the dizzyingly creative world around 'Palo Santo' (a record that arrived with an ambitious short film starring Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw). Ever since multi-platinum-selling debut album 'Communion' in 2015, Years & Years' influence has been growing in plain sight; today, Olly's impact in a show like 'It's A Sin' resonates deeper still (following the show's broadcast, the Terrence Higgins Trust reports that there has been a four-fold increase in HIV Testing Week stats from previous years).
Currently hard at work on more music to follow 'Starstruck,' Years & Years push boundaries by challenging notions of identity and sexuality in a way that is new to pop music -- and totally Olly Alexander's own.
