Ottawa born music artist/songwriter Young Astronomer releases his highly anticipated single “Cloud 9” in hopes to bring some upbeat positivity to a seemingly chaotic and busy world.
Real name Colin Gordon Campbell, better known by his stage persona Young Astronomer is most known for many live performances with Gold & Credited artists such as Wifisfuneral, MGK, Freddie Gibbs, Odd Future, Classified etc. & many more. This will be his first official release of 2020, being produced by Utility Beats (USA) and mixed, mastered and recorded by @ripvctr (Canada). With a fresh outlook and talks of much more music being created now and on the horizon with a variety of 613 bred talent, we can’t wait to see what he brings in terms of new tunes.
As for a song review, wow. “Cloud 9” is about as smooth as it comes! His lyrical content, delivery, hook and beat-choice, we’re no doubt in the young emcees mind. When picking the true vibe and feel for this song, it really does make you visualize yourself walking on clouds with the sun beaming down. Which seemed to be his true intention.
Young Astronomer proves to be a real up and coming force to be reckoned with, local & worldwide. So far, he has accumulated more than 290,000+ streams/plays on all platforms combined and 3 verifications on 3 major profiles. Everyday it seems he’s pushing towards the goal of becoming a musical chameleon of all colours and shapes.
24 year old up and coming hiphop artist Young Astronomer (Ottawa) is booked to perform as an opening act on July 26th hitting the stage before Wifisfuneral (Interscope Records) with official Tour Support by Camp Yola & 2$toned, presented by: The Diamond Mine Agency.
Most of you know Young Astronomer by his music created in the hiphop collective SWiFTcrew which began in early February 2013 (with songs like Rollin’, ILYMJ, Party Gods, Munchies & their debut song “SWiFT living” how we could forget) or when they rocked a sold out show with Machine Gun Kelly at Algonquin Commons Theatre back in 16’, it’s no question that 2019 is the year big things start to happen.
Word on the street is that Young Astronomer is taking the next chapter to focus on his solo career and release his highly anticipated 3rd body of work “Against All Odds” which will consist of 6 songs and be released later in the year.
