Australian singer & producer Chet Faker has been building a name for himself both in the US and abroad over the last few years.

His recently released debut album Built On Glass has been garnering praise and, fresh off a sold out UK & European tour, he kicked off his headline North America tour yesterday at a sold out show at Brooklyn, NY's Output.

He has already sold out most other dates on the tour including a second New York show, two Los Angeles dates at The Roxy, shows in Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego and more, and upgraded to a larger room due to demand in Boston.

Faker's latest video for album track "1998" premiered last month, and the song has received raves from the likes of NPR Music, Esquire & Stereogum.

It followed the release of single "Talk Is Cheap"--a track that crystallizes Faker's wide-reaching aesthetic into a singular vision, fusing languid soul, classic songwriting intimacy, house music immediacy and the dusty thump of golden age hip-hop.

Since the release of "Talk Is Cheap" in mid-February, it has received well over 3 million combined streams on YouTube & Soundcloud.

An artist of considerable range, Chet Faker, the name taken by the Melbourne-based songwriter and producer Nick Murphy, performs all of his own music, giving it a warm, homespun feel that also sounds like one of the world's sultriest bands cranking at full steam.

The artist kicked off his North American spring tour yesterday in Brooklyn, and is headed for many more cities including Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles - among many more.
