Youngr announced as 2018 EBBA winner

London, England, November 28th: Youngr is confirmed as a winner of a 2018 European Border Breakers Award (EBBA), the European music award for emerging artists who have seen outstanding success across Europe.

British musician Dario Darnell is now taking charts and concert halls alike by storm under the monniker Youngr with his addictive, sweet pop music. First single Out Of My System is an emotional electronic pop gem that racked up 30 million streams on Spotify alone. Another way of conveying the message is through his trademark one-take live video's. Darnell used to be in electronic pop duo Picture Book with his brother Lorne and is actually the son of American artist Kid Creole. Now the talented multi-instrumentalist is making some very serious strides on its own.

EBBA ceremony

Earlier, Kristian Kostov (Bulgaria), Blanche (Belgium), Alice Merton (Germany), Sigrid (Norway), Skott (Sweden), Off Bloom (Denmark) and Salvador Sobral (Portugal) were also announced as winners of an EBBA.

The winners will receive their award in a ceremony hosted by TV personality and musician Jools Holland at the Eurosonic Noorderslag festival in Groningen, Netherlands, on 17 January 2018. The ceremony will also feature performances by the winning acts.
