Growing up as an son of Russian parents in Offenburg, Singer started to develop a musical career from the age of twelve. Self-taught, he composed and wrote self-produced songs at home and cover of well-known hits. In 2013, he auditioned for the German version of The Voice Kids joining Team Lena Meyer-Landrut,[1] but was voted out following Battle Round.

In 2014, he released the album Only You mostly in English, but with an additional track in German and 2 remixes. In 2015 (following continued online success),[2] he released his EP Nur mit Dir with 6 tracks in German. He has attracted over 1.4 million fans on Instagram, 360,000 followers on Facebook and over 580,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel.[2]

He was signed to Warner Music Group[3] in February 2017, and both his first album on the label Karma and the follow up album Deja Vu in January 2018 have both reached number 1 on the German Albums Chart,[2] as well as charting in Austria and Switzerland. The German newspaper Die Welt called him the German Justin Bieber.[4] In 2017, he also appeared in the series Spotlight in the role of Luke.
