About Johnny Orlando:
Johnny Orlando first expressed his passion for music when he was just eight years old, posting his first YouTube cover with the help of his older sister. The video, created as a fun Christmas break activity and shared online for family and friends, racked up several thousand views in a few short weeks, so the pair continued to post. Johnny’s fan base grew, then exploded into massive growth, netting him multiple Teen and Kids Choice Award nominations and a combined social following of 16 million dedicated fans.
He’s come a long way since that first post - touring the world with co-headlining and sold-out North American and European tours, signing a recording deal with Universal Music Canada / Island Records, releasing new music (“What If” and “Last Summer”) and working on his debut EP, set for release in the coming months.
Orlando (now 15) is at the forefront of the next generation of Canadian artists impacting a global music stage. He’s been featured in VARIETY, Teen Vogue, Paper Magazine, J-14, Tiger Beat and Just Jared Jr and much more.
