Following a sold out album release tour in July, acclaimed New Zealand crooner Marlon Williams and his band The Yarra Benders will head back on the road in November/December to bring their incredible live show to all corners of Australia.
Now based in Melbourne, Williams is riding high off the back of a huge 2015. His debut album charted at number 4 in its opening week in NZ, and number 31 in Australia, and has already featured on countless album of the year so far lists. His album release tour sold out weeks in advance, the Sydney Morning Herald review glowing “what a terrific show. Fun and funny, sad and blue, it had flashes of modernity amid vast swathes of history and offered up the promise of a future completely unpredictable and completely watchable”.
Williams is also making waves internationally, signing major agent and label deals in North America and Europe, and touring both continents ahead of this Australian tour.
As if the music career isn’t enough, Williams has also found time to act in a major ABC TV series which will air in October, and he will star in a feature film shot in NZ this September.
With one of the purest voices in modern music, and the charisma and individuality to match it, the world is about to discover Marlon Williams.
