Emerging Artist

Conrad Ignatius Mario Maximilian Sewell (#4) is a singer and songwriter from Brisbane, Australia that first came to prominence as the voice of Kygo’s global smash Firestone. After working his way to Los Angeles through the U.K. Conrad signed with powerful young label 300 Entertainment and began working on material with a top-tier cadre of pop songwriters, the end result of which is his debut All I Know EP that was released in November 2015. Not just confined to the studio, the developing artist toured with Ed Sheeran in Australia, and steadily played various dates across North America, the UK, and Australia/New Zealand both at clubs as headliner and larger venues supporting the likes of Kygo.

Conrad did a run of U.S. holiday radio shows, great exposure, and is now doing dates with former Emerging Artist Jess Glynne. Sewell won the 2015 Song of the Year ARIA Music Award for Start Again and was just today (1/20) announced as the voice of Coca Cola’s new international advertising campaign with Taste the Feeling, which will also see multiple remixes from producer Avicii. It wouldn’t take too much radio airplay to generate momentum and push Conrad Sewell out of Emerging Artist status and into the Top 100.
