A short history lesson…
ATHRON IS AN AUSTRALIAN/AMERICAN SINGER-SONGWRITER BASED IN BALI, PERFORMING OVER 200 SHOWS A YEAR, COLLABORATING AND RECORDING WITH VARIOUS PROJECTS AND TOURING ANNUALLY THROUGHOUT SE ASIA, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN, AND THE USA.
After establishing himself as a solo performer in Sydney over a decade ago, Athron released his self-reflective debut album ‘Taming Butterflies,’ a musical diary of inner demons versus emotional survival. With a quiet obsession for all things dark and abnormal, his writing continued along with an exploration into mind-altering states, questioning everything, and an unrelenting search for bizarre experiences that pushed his boundaries worldwide. After jumping ship to Indonesia, his foreground passion remained; music, writing, gigging, recording.
Building on his use of loop pedals to create multiple vocal harmonies, beats, and layered guitars, Athron won over audiences, performing with touring artists such as Michael Franti, bringing vocals to events such as Bali’s famous high season Ku De Ta day party, and working a score of weekly resident gigs and national festivals. Touring across the globe annually has kept the creativity flowing, seeing his second album ‘Escape into Fiction’ successfully crowdfunded and released independently.
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.
