With 3 days to go before Conrad Sewell’s new EP, All I Know drops worldwide we thought we should answer the question Who The Ruddy Hell Is Conrad Sewell? And why you should care!
Before we get to Conrad’s music lets address three very superficial factors. Firstly his full name, while this in itself doesn’t sound impressive wait until you hear it. Conrad Ignatius Mario Maximilian Sewell! Wow!
Second, his hair! His hair is a thing of beauty that could give Harry Styles a run for his money. Perfectly sun-kissed golden locks.
And thirdly, his face. He’s super cute. While this isn’t the be all and end all, it certainly helps. Right, that’s that out of the way lets get on to the music.
You are bound to know Conrad’s biggest hit; Firestone which was a smash hit all over the world last year. Firestone was written by himself and DJ Kygo which went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. It was even the 22nd best selling song of 2015 in the UK, which is allot impressive than it sounds!
Before all this Conrad career started in Australia, as he’s was raised there that makes sense! In 2004, Sewell auditioned for Australia but did not make it though after his audition. He was, later on, part of a rock band called Sons of Midnight. During all this he spent his time recording songs where ever he could. He was also working to bring in the bucks so he could move back to his motherland the UK and at the age of 18 Conrad achieved this and rocked up in England to record a demo!
We can only assume the weather in the UK (cliché warning!) for the Australian raised hottie as he then relocated to L.A to record his first E.P ‘All I Know’ which was released in November 2015. He teamed up with some of the biggest writes in Pop music including Sam Hollander who worked with likes of One Direction and Olly Murs. Conrad’s début single Hold Me Up was written with Brian Lee who’s written with Lady GaGa! Impressive!
In 2015, Conrad also did a hella amount of touring. He supported Ed Sheeran in March on his Australian tour, Maroon 5 on their tour and Jess Glynne on her UK tour. As well as having his own tour dates all over the world in between. Even becoming BBFs with 5SOS and winning an Aria! Busy Boy!
And that bring the cutie to 2016, new EP All I Know is out on 8th January and his US Tour starts in San Francisco on 14th January. It’s a huge tour so be sure to check out the rest of the dates here. If you can’t make the tour or we’ve pricked your interest in Mr. Sewell be sure to check his previous E.P and his Spotify Sessions, which are beautiful.
We are sure it’s going to be a huge year for Conrad and we can’t wait to see catch up with him on tour and hear his new music! We can’t get over his voice. Per-fect!
