Following up a completely sold-out run of headline shows in 2022, Sydney local grentperez has announced his ‘growing up?’ Australia & New Zealand headline tour. His biggest national tour to date, in December of this year the rising star will be taking his live show to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane as well as two shows in New Zealand. The exciting announcement follows on from the recent news that grentperez will be joining UK indie singer-songwriter Rex Orange County as a special guest on his AU/NZ headline tour in September. 

It’s been a busy year for grentperez, and there are no signs of slowing down. Earlier this year the Western Sydney artist returned to the US for his rescheduled North American headline tour, playing to sold-out rooms in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Over July and early August, grentperez also joined UK singer-songwriter Cavetown as a special guest alongside good friends mxmtoon and Ricky Montgomery on a stacked run of dates across North America that wrapped up last week.

Renowned for his energetic and dynamic live show, grentperez announced the US, UK and European legs of the ‘growing up?’ world tour earlier this year – the initial dates announced for the US tour selling out completely within a matter of weeks with venues now upgraded and new dates added, and the rooms for the UK & European shows also needing upgrades to bigger venues to keep up with the demand of fans.

Pre-sale tickets will be available from 12.00pm AEST on Thursday 17 August HERE. General on-sale will be available from 10.00am AEST on Friday 18 August HERE

Australian musician grentperez is unapologetically a Gen-Z artist with an old soul. Having first found his audience on YouTube singing a mix of covers and original songs, grentperez’s rise from viral performer to bedroom pop star was a quick one. At just 12 years old he posted his first video to YouTube and, over time, reached over 100 million views and 600k subscribers. After honing his songwriting chops, his undeniable hit debut single ‘Cherry Wine’ became an international sensation, hitting #1 on Spotify’s Viral Chart in AUS/NZ, Canada and Singapore. He’s since blossomed into an an unassuming and unpretentious artist inspired by the music played at Filipino family karaoke parties, as well as vintage bossa nova and modern R&B.

With over 250 million streams to his name, a global touring resume, and notable support from tastemakers including Triple J, NPR Music, MTV and The Line of Best Fit, grentperez is on the precipice of something big.

Proving again his endless versatility as an artist, grentperez released his highly anticipated EP ‘When We Were Younger’ earlier this year in June – a seven track record centered around the concept of nostalgia. Conceived as a means to get out of a songwriting rut and motivated by a desire to stave off cynicism and embrace the carefree creativity of childhood, in his own words ‘When We Were Younger’ “is a collection of music each relating to figures of the past, whether it be in love, loss, families and friendship.”

Throughout ‘When We Were Younger’, grentperez displays a director’s knack for world-building. Discrete elements throughout the tracks are as disparate as one could imagine but together everything makes sense, and different musical gestures and lyrics stimulating long-dormant memories while simultaneously providing a soundtrack for new ones. Fusing the signifiers of a wide variety of nostalgic sounds: his beloved bossa nova, yes, but also sprightly Philadelphia soul, the swelling strings of golden-era Hollywood, even the soundtracks and general vibe of 90s romcoms – the bold approach hits once you press play on the EP and the opening track busts in with a psychedelic spaghetti western fanfare.
