Bio

Having only been on the scene for just over two years, he has had countless opportunities playing on some of the biggest and most prestigious stages in Australia like Splendour In The Grass (two years in a row), Party In The Paddock, Groovin The Moo, and his first international show at Your Paradise Fiji alongside the world's best such as Skrillex, Slumberjack and Anna Lunoe. He has also supported Australia's best such as Tash Sultana, Paces, LDRU, Sticky Fingers, Indian Summer, Yahztel, Kilter, LIDO, Boo Seeka & Nina Las Vegas.

Under the guise of Amastro, this one-man band released three singles last year and embarked on two national tours across Australia & New Zealand. The first two tracks, "Don't Let Me (Ft. Sara Flint)", "Attracted 2 (Ft. Ned Philpot)" were played on Triple J and was added to Triple J Unearthed high rotation. His other release 'Sober' allowed him to tour nationally as well as supporting Aussie legend, L D R U on his regional tour. Amastro was then nominated for 2x NLMA (National Live Music Awards) for 'Best New Electronic Act' and 'Best New Artist' alongside Vera Blue and Peking Duk. In November, he was also invited by Triple J Unearthed Director, Dave Ruby Howe to play EMC (Electronic Music Conference) to showcase new and upcoming talent. He ended 2017 by touring to support the release of "Attracted 2 (Ft. Ned Philpot)" hitting up all the major cities including New Zealand.

You are so skilled. This captures your attention quickly with its slick blend of indie and electronic. You've also completely nailed the production. I'm putting this straight on repeat. It's crafted wonderfully.

Nice one Angus, you've stepped it up a notch on this new one. Some left of center hooks and you've nailed the production
