After quietly amassing over 20 million streams in Australia, Conan Gray, the buzzing 21-year-old bedroom pop singer-songwriter, today announces his first and only Australian show ahead of the release of his debut album, ‘Kid Krow’ on March 20.
Music from ‘Kid Krow’ has already resonated in a big way. Songs from the album have been streamed upwards of 92 million times globally, including the album’s current single “Maniac”[51 million streams], “Comfort Crowd” [19 million streams], and “Checkmate” [22 million streams]. Produced by frequent collaborator Daniel Nigro, it unfolds as a cohesive vision and hints at the expanse of his world.
As the story goes, Conan Gray found a way out of his tiny Texas hometown by building his own musical world from nothing more than Garage Band and a cheap microphone taped to a lamp.
Within two years since uploading “Idle Town,” he climbed to the forefront of pop off the back of his debut EP, Sunset Season [Republic Records], and a string of successful singles. 300 million streams later, Conan had garnered acclaim from Vogue, VMAN, Teen Vogue, Paper, The FADER, MTV, i-D, Billboard, Seventeen, and OnesToWatch, to name a few, made his television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and transformed peers such as Billie Eilish, BTS, The 1975, Brendon Urie, Troye Sivan, Lewis Capaldi, and Noah Cyrus into ardent and vocal fans.
Prior to the release of a proper full-length, he sold out three North American headline tours, a European headline tour (over 60,000 tickets sold), supported Panic! At The Disco, and performed at Lollapalooza.
