Artist bio

ARTIST BIO – SHORT FORM (200 WORDS):

Ziggy Alberts is a singer-songwriter who gives new meaning to the term independent artist. At only 24 years old he has released five records, started his own label Commonfolk Records, played sold out tours across the world, and his music has effortlessly amassed millions of listeners, worldwide.

Musically Ziggy’s folk hewn sound has raised comparisons to the likes of early Ben Howard or Jack Johnson. Like these contemporaries, Ziggy creates honest and personal music that explore his relationships both with others and the planet – a subject close to Ziggy’s heart as a surfer and environmental enthusiast.

In 2018, Ziggy released his fifth record Laps Around The Sun which was premiered on Billboard Magazine and was ‘Feature Album of the Week’ on triple j. In the first week after its release, the album charted to #2 on the ARIA Australian Artist Album Charts.

2018 also saw Ziggy embark on his Laps Around The Sun World Tour, where he officially sold out all 37 dates before the dawn of the AU/NZ leg (26,500 tickets).

2019 is set to be Ziggy’s biggest year yet, as he continues on his world tour playing shows in Europe, UK, North America and South Africa.

PRESS QUOTES:

"If you like powerful, soulful voices like Dermot Kennedy and storytellers like Vance Joy, then this is for you." – Substream

"Folk-hewn but modern-facing, his work sits alongside those early Ben Howard cuts or even Jack Johnson, that kind of slick but still endearingly earnest musicality." – Clash, UK

"Ziggy Alberts: The golden boy who busked his way to success" – Triple J

"Youthful songwriter Ziggy Alberts’ sound has been described as ‘coastal folk’. It’s an apt description, with Laps Around The Sun demonstrating both the warmth and loneliness of the coast." – Songwriting Magazine
