About Aloe Blacc
Aloe Blacc (real name E. Nathaniel Dawkins) might have started his career singing songs like "I Need a Dollar," but chances are he's got plenty of them now.
Blacc, who started out playing the trumpet as a child, also pursued other artistic endeavors (including guitar and piano), before moving on to the corporate world. Ultimately, he decided music was his first and only love and returned to the stage full time when he formed the hip-hop group Emanon with DJ Exile. Their debut album was released in 2005, and in the next year Aloe Blacc's first solo album, "Shine Through" also took a public bow.
By 2010, Blacc partnered with the Truth & Soul Productions crew for the album "Good Things." It was that project that ultimately featured the single "I Need a Dollar," which reached the Top Ten in the U.K. and Germany, and was licensed for use as the theme song to HBO's "How to Make It in America." The success proved to be the catalyst that would move Blacc on to bigger and better things.
In 2013, Blacc co-wrote and fronted Avicii's "Wake Me Up," which became an international smash hit that climbed into the Top Five of Billboard's Hot 100. His third album, "Lift Your Spirit," was released in some territories later in the year but held for U.S. release through Interscope until early 2014.
