Fresh from claiming the #3 spot on the Hottest 100 of 2019 with ‘Charlie’ and lighting up music festivals all summer long, the dreamy Queen of Australian pop, Mallrat, today announces her largest national tour ever, starting this May.
Mallrat, real name Grace Shaw, will play to packed out theatres across the country, starting in Adelaide on May 15, before floating across to Perth, and then returning to the east coast to perform in Melbourne, Sydney, and finally a triumphant homecoming to Brisbane.
These shows will be the culmination of a massive few months for the 21-year-old singer-songwriter-producer, after her third EP Driving Music, catapulted her to a whole new level of international fame. Propelled by the heart-melting lead single ‘Charlie’ (which recently achieved GOLD status, having sold 35,000 units), the EP has been universally acclaimed, and saw her achieve a huge amount of new success – from her incredible Hottest 100 result, to appearing on US TV for the first time (The Late Late Show with James Corden), touring across the US and Europe with good friends Maggie Rogers, King Princess and Allday, and seeing multiple singles achieve Gold and Platinum statuses.
Still only three EP’s into her career, Mallrat’s success at this stage in her musical life is almost unparalleled. Each of her releases, Univited (2016), In The Sky (2018) and Driving Music (2019), have seen her expand artistically and creatively from record to record – her ambition only matched by the momentum she’s been able to maintain to this current career peak.
Now she’s deep in the process of writing and recording her debut album, already being touted as one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year. With these shows set to sell out fast, this will be your last chance to see one of Australia’s truly amazing songwriting talents before her career takes off into the stratosphere. Tickets on sale from February 18.
