Born in 1992 and raised in Sweden, Victor started playing the guitar and writing songs at a young age.

His debut single “Burning Man” was released in 2015.
2019 wasn’t the first year when he competed for the right to represent a country at Eurovision: he also participated in Sweden’s Melodifestivalen in 2015, featuring in Behrang Miri‘s song “Det rår vi inte för”, with less luck than this year.
