Lørdag kveld står den australske artisten Guy Sbastian på VG Lista scenen. Søndag blir det mulighet for deg og sjekke ut artisten akustisk på den intime Uhørt scenen.
Australian superstar Guy Sebastian brings some real heart to pop music. The highest-selling male artist in his home country's history, the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist's accolades encompass everything from being the first winner of Australian Idol, scoring multiple ARIA Awards, notching seven consecutive multi-platinum albums, seven number one singles, judging the Australian X-Factor, leading 2012's "Battle Scars" to platinum status in the U.S. with Lupe Fiasco, and so much more. However, he never loses sight of the one special experience that started it all and essentially shaped him.
"When I was six-years-old, I heard Sam Cooke sing for the first time," he smiles. "My dad was playing his tape, and I was like, 'What is this? I want to do this. I need to be that guy!' Sam was my hero growing up. In a way, I'm like an organic soul singer blending in some electronica, pop, and R&B production."
Now, Sebastian seizes that spirit on his 2015 single "Tonight Again".
The music was composed by Guy’s seasoned songwriting partner Ryan Harris (John Mayer, Richie Sambora etc.), while the text was written by Louis Schoorl (5 Seconds of Summer, Jessica Mauboy and many more).
With an incredibly successful career already under his belt in Australia, it took the release of his
‘Battle Scars’ single (featuring Lupe Fiasco) from his last album, to truly catapult Guy
Sebastian's profile internationally. Whilst he had impacted international audiences previously in his career, ‘Battle Scars’ was a monster smash hit around the globe; debuting at #1 in Australia and achieving a phenomenal 9xPlatinum status, the single went on to chart around the globe and pick up a significant amount of critical acclaim and awards. It was a success story that not even Guy could have expected.
