Chet Faker Tickets

Electronic Soul with Chet Faker

Chet Faker puts a unique Motown spin on electronic dance music to create a smooth, soulful sound that has everyone swaying and swooning to his beats. Treat yourself to Chet Faker tickets and enjoy this artist's fresh take on electronic music.

Schedule

Electronic soulster Chet Faker is having a reintroduction party of sorts. The Australian crooner is already well known for his viral hits "No Diggity" and "I'm Into You," but April 2014 marks the debut of his first full-length album "Built On Glass," which his North American tour is promoting. Starting on May 14th, 2014, Faker will appear in Boston, followed by another show in Brooklyn on May 17th. After a brief swing north of the border to Toronto and Vancouver, he will perform in the Western U.S. with shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Denver in late May and early June.

Trivia

Chet Faker's real name is Nicholas Murphy, which he changed to avoid confusion with another Australian singer of the same name. He based his stage name on that of his musical idol, jazz artist Chet Baker. Growing up, he was influenced by the musical tastes of his parents, with his mother listening to Motown and his dad favoring "chilled out Ibiza CDs." In this way, an electronic soul artist was born. Faker attended college and studied audio engineering before committing to a music career full time. Around this time he recorded "No Diggity," which he sent the to a single blogger. Unbeknownst to him, his music spread all over the world. He remained unaware of his success until he saw "No Diggity" reach No. 1 on The Hype Machine.

Singer

The artist describes his music as "Motown meets minimalist house." The first thing that strikes many is his raw, soulful voice. It's instantly relatable but with a beauty and melodiousness that's hard to find independent of autotune. The instrumentals in Faker's work can be classified as modern chillwave but with a classic jazz influence. Put together with the lo-fi production values from his home recording studio, you get the witches' brew that has seduced millions. He's also collaborated with several artists, having lent his unique vocals to a Say Lou Lou's "Fool of Me" and teaming up with fellow Australian Flume to record the EP "Lockjaw."

Breakthrough

When the artist heard Backstreet's "No Diggity" one night, and decided on a whim to record a cover, he had no idea it would change his life. It was the first song he ever released online, but the song was so catchy that it went viral. Reaching No. 1 on The Hype Machine charts in May 2011, it would go on to receive over four million YouTube streams and set the stage for bigger things to come.

Hit Albums

After the success of "No Diggity," Faker went into the studio and recorded the EP "Thinking in Textures." Released in March of 2012, it included "No Diggity" as well as six original compositions, one being the hit single "I'm Into You." A year later, he released a free live EP called "Live Sessions," which featured a cover of Burial's "Archangel."

Show Experience

Fans getting their hands on Chet Faker tickets will see a performer who seems like he's been in this industry for years. Avoiding blinding visuals or flashy costumes, Faker chooses instead to focus on the music - he knows he's got the chops to deliver. Whether performing with a backing band or going solo, Faker relishes the chance to experiment with fresh electronic arrangements and get the crowd grooving in unison.
