Softly woven acoustic-based tunes combined with raw lyrics, and smooth melodies and layered with a thick vocal presence, Athron’s music combines a rich blend of emotive sounds to guarantee satisfaction for the senses.
After establishing himself as a solo performer in Sydney over a decade ago, Athron released a full-length album ‘Taming Butterflies’ before escaping to the island of Bali in Indonesia and despite a lifetime of changing backgrounds, his foreground focus remained the same; music, writing, gigging. Building on his use of loop pedals to create multiple vocal harmonies and layered guitars, Athron quickly won over audiences, performing with touring artists such as Michael Franti, bringing vocals to various events such as Bali’s famous high season Ku De Ta day party, while also working a score of weekly resident gigs across the island. Touring throughout SE Asia and the USA has kept the travel bug satisfied and in the space between, he both wrote and successfully crowd-funded his second album, ‘Escape into Fiction’.
‘Escape into Fiction’ plays out a mixed bag of sounds that chime out acoustic soul from the bedroom, right through to heavy rock grooves and dark pop melodies. It is a journey as varied as Athron’s own life experiences: a single narrative thick with variety and diversity.
Currently playing over 200 shows a year, Athron has emerged as a solo artist with a style that is both unique and captivating to the soul, producing a personal sound that leaves a lasting impression.
