Chet Faker Hitting Brisbane in February 2015

| On 20, Nov 2014

After a killer year, releasing his highly acclaimed debut album Built On Glass and taking his electronica heaven around the globe, Chet Faker has announced a homecoming tour that will be his biggest yet!

Since first signing with the United States’ record label Downtown Records in 2012 and releasing his musical debut Thinking In Textures the same year, the electronica muso with great skills and a great beard has sky rocketed to international fame. In just two years Chet Faker has acquired a number of impressive titles to slot into his belt, including ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ and ‘Best Independent Single EP’ at the Australian Independent Records Awards in 2012, and ‘Best Independent Release’ at the Rolling Stone Australia Awards in 2013.

If there is one artist who has claimed 2014 as their year, it’s Melbourne’s own Chet Faker. In April this year he released his debut album Built On Glass that was immediately placed on a top shelf pedestal. Having already won three ARIA Awards and being nominated for a total of nine, Chet Faker has rightfully received nominations in the 2014 J Awards for his musical buffet Built On Glass as Album of the Year, and Talk Is Cheap for Music Video of the Year

As well as receiving extensive quantities of praise for his April release, Chet Faker has been gracing stages near and far with his musical expertise, including playing Australia’s Listen Out Music Festival. Drawing to a close his massive year, the Melbourne artist has announced his biggest Australian tour yet where he will be playing eight headline shows across his homeland in February 2015. Fellow Melbournian producer Rolan Tings and cosmic-funk act GL will be supporting his run around the country, and will be landing on our Brisbane shores on Saturday February 14th to play at the Convention Centre. And don’t worry kiddies, it’s all ages!
