Dean Lewis announces his biggest headline shows to date off the back of huge audiences at Splendour in the Grass and Groovin the Moo this year. Dean and his band will play his new platinum single “Be Alright”, his massive debut song “Waves” and other songs from his EP “Same Kind of Different” plus new songs from his much anticipated forthcoming album.
The single “Be Alright” signals a newfound conviction in Dean Lewis’ own storytelling and singing capabilities, something he says, he had to learn. “I think a lot of people are in their rooms writing songs, thinking it's not good enough or wondering why your voice doesn’t sound like everyone else's. But those things you think are weaknesses are actually your strengths. It’s what makes you unique. And after a bit of time, it’s the thing that gives you confidence.”
Dean Lewis created a monumental buzz, launching with single ‘Waves’. Strongly championed by triple j, Spotify and Apple Music, ‘Waves’ was the second biggest Australian selling single of 2017. Adding to this incredible achievement, he has claimed three Gold plus selling singles from Same Kind of Different EP with Waves (3 x platinum) ‘Need You Now’ (Gold) and ‘Lose My Mind’ (Gold). The multi-platinum selling ‘Waves’ was nominated for 2 APRA Awards, 5 ARIA Awards as well as appearing on cult programs like Suits, Riverdale and Grey’s Anatomy.
“Be Alright” is a testament to Dean Lewis’s knack for writing thoughtful, evocative no-frills pop songs, and signifies him as a bona fide star in the making.
