International pop phenomena Born Crain is heading into the stratosphere with his UK debut, 'Outer Space'. A superstar in nearly every musical territory from Europe to the Far East, Born's youthful squeaky clean pop has taken a new direction and it's with this he's about to launch himself like a synth pop missile onto the UK music scene.
Born started his musical career in 2004 in his home country of Belgium, releasing 'Fools Rush In' via Universal Belgium which included 3 top 5 Singles in Benelux; 'Fools Rush In', 'Don't Ever Go' and 'Walking In The Sun'.
He's also been delighting Japanese audiences, reaching number 2 in the Japanese charts, where his second album 'The Pleasure of Your Company' included 4 hit singles there and in Europe; '4 Letter Word', 'Falling from Heaven' and a cover-version of NKOTB's 'Tonight'.
In 2008, Crain won the European Border Breaker Award at MIDEM in Cannes for Best Selling Belgian Artist and has sold over 150,000 albums worldwide. Born also released a cover album 'Born In The USA' with 'All American' songs in 2012 for Q-Music - the biggest Belgian commercial radio station which was number 1 in Benelux within hours of the release.
Recently, the young pop sensation Born has focused on developing a new, edgier sound, resulting in the brand new album 'Identity'. Inspired by the synth pop of the eighties and featuring none other than the legendary pop princess Kim Wilde!
Born has toured extensively throughout Japan, played over 250 shows in Europe, performed live for over 35,000 people on Belgium's biggest pop festival (VTM Live), shared the stage with Kim Wilde, opened for 80's heart throb Paul Young, appeared in hundreds of national TV and radio shows and won a renowned 'ZaMu' Award (Belgian Music Award) in the category of 'Best Pop'.
