Bien-aime Alusa is a Nairobi-based songwriter, musician, and vocalist who creates soul-soothing Afropop as Bien.

A member and lead vocalist of critically-acclaimed Nairobi-based band, Sauti Sol, Bien embarked on his solo career in 2021 with the release of his debut single ‘National Treasure’, a collaboration with  Xenia Manasseh, Bensoul and AfroNautiq. The same year, Bien released his debut project ‘Bald Men Love Better’ in collaboration with Kenyan jazz musician Aaron Rimbui. The five-track project highlighted Bien’s vibrant Afropop sounds, and infectious vocals.

As part of Sauti Sol, he contributed to the Grammy-nominated album “Midnight Train,” which earned international acclaim from Billboard and CNN, whilst also receiving a Grammy for the production of “Twice as Tall” album for Nigerian musician Burna Boy.

Most recently, Bien has also gone on to release a catalog of singles, including ‘Inauma’, ‘My Baby’ (ft. Ayra Starr) and ‘Too Easy’ (with DJ Edu).
