Bio

The euphoric sights and sounds one associates with the Australian Sunshine Coast could easily be likened to the dreamily soulful music produced by one of its most captivating artists, Christian Patey.

Christian Patey has been joining forces with electronic producers from across the world to create a new, effortlessly cool sound for himself.

The one man band that is infused with electric guitar, synths ,samples and drums together illuminates the room and takes the listener on an uplifting and feel good journey.

He has collaborated with UK beat-maker Alabaster, well known Brisbane lads Yes You, Steve Thornely and Jimmy2sox (Flight Facilities) and recently had his vocals sampled on PARTYNEXTDOOR'S album PX3.

Christian is reeling from a massive 2017 with single 'Is This Real' premiered on Triple J and added to rotation on Double J, followed by two other singles ‘High’ and ‘Cant Get Enough’ both played continually on Triple J Unearthed along with three east coast tours. Following a previous release of ‘Safe to say you’re free’ produced by Jimmy2sox (One half of Flight Facilities), sold out TASH SULTANA, BOOSEEKA and TIJUANA CARTEL supports, festival appearances and a vocal sample on PARTYNEXTDOOR'S latest album PX3 for Drakes label OVO.

Patey has joined forces once again with renowned Brisbane electronic producer Steve Thornely to produce his single ‘THIS’.

Um yes! This is exactly what I needed to press play to on a Monday morning. It slowly woke me up, then filled me with sweet rhythmic energy to take me through the day.

A soulful and smooth little jam. Christian's voice works well here. The chinky-chinky guitar part is a nice touch.
