One of Australia’s most accomplished singer/songwriters – the multiple-award-winning, multiple-Platinum-certified global superstar Dean Lewis – will embark on an Australian tour, taking in 15 cities and regional centres, this November and December.
His ‘Sad Boi Winter Summer’ tour has been electrifying audiences throughout North America and Europe in recent months and now it’s finally Australia’s turn to experience Dean’s signature sound in the flesh.
Only a handful of artists are fortunate enough to achieve both critical acclaim and commercial success off the back of a debut single release. Dean Lewis is part of this exclusive club thanks to his global smash hit ‘Waves’ (2016), which landed key syncs in some hugely popular American TV series including ‘Suits’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Riverdale’ and the ‘Magnum P.I’ remake. ‘Be Alright’ (2018), Dean’s follow-up single, made an even bigger impact, going Platinum+ in 22 countries and topping the ARIA Singles Chart for five weeks!
Dean has sold 3.6M+ albums and EPs worldwide and his music has attracted 7+ billion streams to date. He was welcomed into the Spotify Billions club when ‘Be Alright’ surpassed 1 billion streams and has over 1.1M YouTube and 1.3M Tik Tok followers. His most recent single ‘Falling Up’ is ARIA Gold-certified with 68M+ global streams. Lewis was an Apple Up Next artist in 2019 and played over 200 shows that year, including sold-out U.S. and Australian tours plus many shows and festival slots around Europe. That same year, Dean collaborated with Dutch superstar DJ/producer Martin Garrix on their hit single ‘Used To Love’ and kicked another bucketlist career goal when he performed at the AFL Grand Final.
Off the back of just one album release – 2019’s chart-topping, multiple-award-winning, multiple-Platinum-certified ‘A Place We Knew’ – Dean has cultivated and captivated a huge global fanbase. After ‘Half A Man’ was performed by a contestant on X Factor in Denmark earlier this year, this track from his debut album received a second life when it flew to the top of the Danish charts.
Make sure you’re in the audience to help Dean celebrate his endless, ongoing list of global achievements. It doesn’t get much better than watching one of Australia’s finest voices bringing his universally relatable songs, which regularly flood our playlists, to life.
Supporting Dean Lewis on his Australian tour is Blake Rose, who Dean personally selected after hearing his music on Spotify. Hailing from Perth, Blake has had a keen musical curiosity for as long as he can remember. One of the first instruments he ever picked up was the didgeridoo, followed by a guitar which he taught himself to play at age 12. It was a 3-month-long camping trip around Australia with his family that saw Rose really begin to develop into the songwriter he is today. As they drove from campsite to campsite, teenage Rose started to write down his own songs in the back of his family car. On the return home, he began to experiment with GarageBand and Pro Tools, falling in love with the idea of creating a song from start to finish. Taking to the streets of Perth to busk as a teenager, he quickly discovered his love for live performance. Blake Rose brings a depth to his music that is wise beyond his years. Marked by profound and picturesque lyricism, his songs are vibrant, powerful, and deeply authentic.
