Relatable hit-maker Oscar Scheller takes Notion on a day in the life in LA: from hanging out with puppies to making music in the studio, and hitting the outdoor cinema.
Oscar Scheller is a singer, songwriter and producer becoming the go-to for a new generation of breakout acts shaping the sound of 2022 and beyond. Growing up in London and starting piano at the age of six, his music career began from his bedroom after graduating from art school. Since then, Scheller has gone from strength to strength, writing and producing bop after bop. His list of collaborators is ever-growing, including the likes of Mabel, Tkay Maidza, Biig Piig, Matilda Mann and spill tab.
Oscar’s latest collab is a link-up with Detroit musician chloe moriondo for a new single: “Hard Being Alive”. The track sees Scheller and moriondo drop a catchy beat underpinned by themes of adversity. Scheller tells the story of the tune’s inception: “I wrote it during a particularly claustrophobic and dismal period in London. I honestly forgot about it. Fast forward onto an LA trip, chloe moriondo and I had just left a session with A.G Cook and I accidentally airdropped the demo to Chloe’s phone when I was trying to play another song in the car. A month later she messaged me the song saying she was obsessed with it and sent me a voicenoted acoustic rendition. I messaged back saying “you wanna do a verse?” and she made the song a million times better!!”
To celebrate his new single, Oscar took Notion along for a dreamy day in sunny LA: hanging out with puppies, eating ribs and getting back into the studio.
