Biography

Father Dude has turned 2014 into a breakout year, totaling over 2 Million combined plays on Soundcloud and Youtube. His single “Electrify” (Neon Records) with Sydney-based producer GRMM hit #2 on the Australian iTunes Electronic Charts and enjoyed heavy rotation on famed radio station Triple J. As the lone vocalist in the EDM.com supported HEGEMON collective, he has staked his place as one of the premier singer/songwriters in EDM/Chill music. This has led him to collaborate with some of the biggest up and coming producers of the genre in Slumberjack (One Love Records), TroyBoi (Fool’s Gold), Just A Gent, $aturn and New World Sound. As 1/3 of THE DANCE (formally Smokey Robotic) with producer !lmind (Kanye West, Eminem), FD has helped create their signature “Superfuture” sound. Thus far, the group has synced music for international TV and radio campaigns with AXE, Movado, Nike Fuelband and Converse. With an intensely kinetic live show, they have built a buzz in the industry with features from FUSE, The Atlantic, Complex, MTV Hive, The Source and more. Father Dude continues to transcend genres by contributing to the latest album from hip-hop legends Mobb Deep (“The Infamous Mobb Deep”), and working with highly respected artists and producers including Redman, Yonas, Skyzoo, Dave East, Yoon-Mirae and Drunken Tiger, Marius Moga (Maroon 5) and Cataylst (Chris Brown, Beyonce) amongst others. FD is currently working on his highly anticipated debut EP.
