After 10 years since the release of his first album 'So It Begins', S.O. releases his fifth and first live album 'Live In London' on February 26th, 2021 on all DSPs. This project covers live performances of 18 tracks from his previously released albums and EPs. Producer and close friend G.P., who has played a significant role in shaping S.O.’s sound for the past decade, took on this project as the Music Director to help create the most dynamic, personal and engaging performances of some of S.O.’s greatest songs. As a special guest Lucy Grimble shared the stage with S.O. to render the first live performance of the single “Goals” together, which is one of many highlights of the album.
“Live In London" was recorded at the sold-out Homecoming Concert at the Freedom Arena in London, UK on February 15, 2020. The aim was to curate an extraordinary music experience as a celebration and homage to his fan base and community. A camera team documented the process of bringing this project to life, as S.O. returned home from the US for the first time in 2 years to play this show. Partnering with Stabal the documentary features the majority of the concert, as well as family time, personal anecdotes and behind the scenes footage. It can be streamed on Stabal now.
Since its release in September 2019, S.O.’s latest album ‘Augustine’s Legacy’ has accumulated over 14 million streams on Spotify alone. An album dedicated to his late father and first child, S.O. is no stranger to creating and crafting unique stories that resonate with people.
