Bio

Vibrant and enigmatic, Apollo Blue is one of Australia’s most mysterious and exciting upcoming acts. A Solo Artist, Songwriter and Entertainer, his dazzling act is based in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by 60s Soul, 70s Rock and alternative pop, his greatest inspirations include Nina Simone, The Rolling Stones, Regina Spektor and Lady Gaga.

Originally from Port Pirie, South Australia, Apollo Blue began his musical journey at the age of 12 when he taught himself to play piano and read music. As an adolescent, this journey of creative expression was developed on stage as he earned leading roles in several plays and musical productions. A deep love of theatre and reinvention was formed and the stage that once scared him became home; Apollo Blue was born.

Apollo Blue challenges conventions and evokes emotion through his creative songwriting, impressive vocal range and genre-bending musicality. Uniquely ethereal, this rising Rockstar is destined for stardom and has the glitz to match.

The energy and ideas are all there. Theatrical and dramatic in the best kind of way, it's moving and, I'm really excited to see how Apollo grows as an artist.

Agreed with DRH here - so theatrical! A song that makes you wanna throw on a sequin dress and run away in the middle of the night to follow the moon across the sky.
