CHET FAKER Announces Headline Australian Tour

Words by Scenewave Oz - Published on July 6, 2012

Following a sold out EP launch tour and a European tour with The Temper Trap, Melbourne electronica artist Chet Faker is pleased to announce a headline Australian tour in support of his new single ‘Love and Feeling’.

Hailing from the tight-knit disco and house music scene in Melbourne and taking elements from an acoustic past, Chet Faker has carved out a unique style that fuses personal stories of love and loss with an electronica soul that reaches far beyond his homeland. Shrouded in secrecy, hidden behind an alias and disguised by a beard, Chet Faker enjoys mystery. He came to everyone’s attention when his cover of Blackstreet’s classic ‘No Diggity’ hit #1 on Hype Machine. But far from rushing into the limelight, Chet built on the popularity of ‘No Diggity’ through a series of tracks released online, creating an insatiable hunger from fans for more from this part jazz, part soul and part electronic artist.

2012 has been an incredible year for Chet Faker. In March he played stand-out performances at SXSW, including a performance at the Filter Magazine Party and was touted as a ‘must see’ act by The Austin Chronicle. On 23 March 2012 his debut EP Thinking In Textures was released on Opulent / Remote Control in Australia, on Chess Club Records in the UK and on Downtown Records in the USA to widespread acclaim. Chet went on to sell out his Sydney and Brisbane Thinking in Textures launches and a remarkable three Melbourne launches in April, before taking off to the UK to perform at The Great Escape Festival. Chet went on to perform at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Vivid Live Festival and is currently in the middle of a European tour with The Temper Trap.
