Axel Ibrahim Mansoor (born June 29, 1992), known professionally as Axel Mansoor, is an Emmy-nominated American singer and songwriter. He is best known for his single "Wasted My Love".
Axel Mansoor was born in Bethesda, MD to Mauritian-born parents. Growing up, he moved around the world for his father's job, living in places like Zimbabwe, Shanghai, Belgium, and Mauritius before landing in California. A graduate of the University of Southern California, Axel began his recorded music career with Daniel Weidlein, who engineered and produced his early recordings.
In February 2017 Axel released his debut single "Wasted My Love", which reached #5 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart, received radio play from Jason Kramer of KCRW and garnered praise from several influential music blogs including Ones To Watch (Live Nation's music publication), Line Of Best Fit, Earmilk, and others. More music followed including the single “Talk To Me”, which was accompanied by an innovative vertical music video that premiered on BuzzFeed's Snapchat Discover channel and received a co-sign from Kaskade.
In April 2018 he was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Best Original Song in a Drama for his work on ABC's General Hospital and in June he released his debut EP "Somerset" which consists of self-produced stripped-down acoustic songs.
Axel has shared the stage with performers as Frenship, Chela, Yoke Lore, and Josh Radnor, and is also a regular performer at Sofar Sounds events around the country.
