Austria 2020: Vincent Bueno – "Alive"

The song Alive, written by Vincent Bueno, is a R&B and funk song, and is about setting free and becoming alive by leaving your ego behind. The song goes through a change in both content and music until it culminates in the final statement: "Alive again".

Vincent worked on this song with David "Davey" Yang, Felix van Göns and Artur Aigner, who are young up-and-coming producers and composers in the Austrian music scene.

He started his career with 16 by graduating in Music and Performing Arts with a degree in Musical Theatre at the Vienna Conservatory of Music.

Since then he has won the Austrian singing competition “Musical – The Show” in 2008 and charted with his song Party Hard in the Philippines in 2011 and starred in various musicals.

Vincent Bueno tells about the creation of "Alive":

– The song has had a very long journey and got a good push in the final sprint. This time I worked with very young producers and composers (David "Davey" Yang, Felix van Göns and Artur Aigner), who will definitely be involved in the Austrian music scene in the future. During the creation of the song, everyone in the team was able to experience how much the song had developed when everyone involved freed himself from his ego and was open to one another.
