From haunting acoustic ballads to big band soul rock guaranteed to make you move, Dan Sultan and his knock out seven-piece band deliver a truly dynamic live set.
Albums: A star that's been swiftly rising since the release of his second and highly acclaimed album Get Out While You Can, Dan Sultan's powerhouse performances are among the most talked about shows in the country. With a voice that is simultaneously sweet and rough, this young front man knows how to turn on a crowd.
Get Out While You Can, the second album by Dan Sultan, is an electrifying romp through rockabilly, blues, country, soul, and rock 'n' roll. On the back of its release last November 2009, it instantly earned a coveted spot as radio triple j album of the week and shot to Number 1 on the Independent Australian album charts shortly thereafter. It remains one of the highest-selling independent releases in the country today.
Awards: Dan Sultan has won two Deadly Awards 2010 (Best Male Artist, Best Single for Letter), scooped two AIR Awards 2010 (Best Independent Artist and Best Independent Blues & Roots Album) and has beaten off some serious competition to take out this countries most prestigious accolades: two ARIA awards for Best Blues & Roots Album and Male Artist of the Year 2010. Dan Sultan is only the second indigenous performer to take out this award trifecta after the enigmatic Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu.
Record deal: In early 2013, Dan signed a record deal with Liberation and is currently working on a new album in Nashville with acclaimed producer Jacquire King (Of Monsters And Men, Modest Mouse, Tom Waits, Kings Of Leon, Editors), due for release in 2014. In the meantime he has leant his soulful vocals and swinging swagger to Jan Skubiszewski's new project Way Of The Eagle on the debut single Rattlesnake, is currently performing nationally as part of the Back To Basics solo tour, and will be supporting Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band on select dates of their 2014 tour of Australia.
