Following in the illustrious footsteps of the triple j Unearthed High winners before him, 2017 champion Arno Faraji has announced his signing to independent booking agency New World Artists.
His intelligent verses and self-produced house beats have landed him the coveted spot on the Sydney based booking label's roster.
"We are very happy to welcome Arno to the New World Artists family, his production and lyrical abilities are well beyond his age," said New World Artists managing director Edwin Tehrani.
"We are thrilled to be involved from the ground level in building his live music career."
The partnership is bolting straight out of the gate with Faraji announcing a support spot on Mallrat's upcoming Better all ages tour, as well as a spot on Perth's Hypefest line up alongside fellow WA exports Tired Lion.
"It's sooo dope, I'm super excited for the future in terms where I'm going and what I'm gonna be doing with NWA, it's about to be lit!" said Faraji.
The 17-year-old Perth based producer has been a hot ticket since he took out triple j’s top spot. As a part of his prize, Faraji headed into the studio with Remi and Sensible J early in the year for a mentoring session and to lay down a new track.
