How Social Media Became Stanaj’s Unexpected Ticket to Stardom

Yonkers native Stanaj came by to hang out with Carson and Cane this morning before he graces our Fresh In The Park stage tomorrow at Eisenhower Park! We’ve been obsessed with his song “Romantic” as soon as we started playing it, but when we actually sat down with him, we were hooked!

You HAVE to hear about how his career took off; social media was his ticket to fame!

After he and his brother did the whole “California thing”, picking up and packing a car to move out there and try to make it, he started hitting up karaoke bars just to sing.

Stanaj: ” One night at Zen lounge in North Hollywood and there just happens to be a basketball player there, Brendan Jennings, he actually played for the New York Knicks, and he posted a video of me on his Instagram. That basically started the biggest snowball effect.”

After that one post he was getting attention from everyone from Chris Brown, to Kim Kardashian, and even Drake, who invited him to perform at a party!

Fast forward to a year later, and he’s in the Fresh 102.7 studios introducing his first song on the radio, LIVE!

 

Stanaj will join Lukas Graham and NEEDTOBREATHE on this Summer’s annual Fresh in the Park; Fresh 102.7’s free annual concert at at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, Long Island. This year’s show takes place on Saturday, July 23rd.
