Head of Shlepp Entertainment Stevie Eagle E has confirmed that he will be working on a musical project with Norwegian singing star Beate Jacobsen this year. Stevie Eagle E and Beate Jacobsen met for the first time at the G Salvatore Showcase event in the UK and the two immediately hit it off.
Known for his global collaborations and groundbreaking projects Stevie Eagle E is always involved in something a little left of center.
Stevie Eagle E reached billions with through Chinese star Ayi Jihu, known as the Chinese Madonna. He produced, wrote and performed with Ayi Jihu all over the world creating the first true crossover Chinese icon and reaching billions worldwide.
However, Ayi Jihu was not the first Asian artist Stevie Eagle E had success with. Along with his partner Doc B they produced the first track by any Asian artist to make the top of any Western chart when they produced Hong Kong Singer and musician Leslie Loh’s track.
Stevie then when on to work with Korean Star Shim Mina producing her version of the hit song Kiss Kiss and also producing the first Korean music video shot in the west.
Now it seems Stevie Eagle E has gone in a different direction working with an artist from a Nordic country. Beate Jacobsen has had great success in Norway, singing not only in one of Norway’s top bands but also having chart success in her own right reaching the top of the charts, including No.1, several times. She also was a runner-up in for representing Norway at the Eurovision song contest.
If you know Stevie Eagle E you will be used to the fact that his projects musical, film or PR are always eclectic and usually ground-breaking in some way. The one thing that brings them all together is his ability to find ‘The soul’ in anything and everything he does and so we can only assume there will be some serious soul in this new collaboration.
We spoke briefly to Stevie Eagle E about his impending collaboration with Beate Jacobsen.
It was just a natural thing. I heard her sing, I was like wow I need to work with this woman and we started speaking about music and found we had so much in common. I have listened to a lot of Beate Jacobsen music now, and I do not think anyone has truly heard this woman sing yet, and If you listen to whats out there all you would say is ‘How is that possible.’ Beate is a true singer-songwriter, she is also a very accomplished musician. Old skool but new school too. I was so excited after the event that I asked her to stay one more day and go into the studio with me to see what we could come up with. That was a session I will never forget as she just blew us all away. So now we are working on something a little special. If you know me you know it may just change the game.
Stevie Eagle E would not tell us any more about the project, style or music involved. He said he did not want to spoil the surprise for the world. So we wait in eager anticipation.
If history is anything to go by, or making history is something we are looking for we will be seeing something great and something new. Keep it locked at Global News ink for all the news on this exciting collaboration.
