Bio

“An undeniably impressive achievement..” – RipItUp
The restless yet calculated mind behind the ‘If the City Had A Voice’ mixtape series, Purpose defied the odds in 2013 by landing on the ARIA Album Charts for his debut 'Where It Starts’, topping the MGM distribution chart before it’s release – all without a record deal.

This album delivered his biggest hit both as a performer & as a producer, a top 10 highest played song in national rotation on Triple in ‘Coming Home’. This allowed him to embark on a 40 date tour, further solidifying his following.

Although a celebrated song-writer, producer & performer, Purpose continues to represent Australia at the biggest landmark international MC-ing competitions in the world (USA & Canada). With a chest full of medals and a hard-drive full of exciting new music, he is looking forward to his biggest year yet in 2014 which will see the release of his second album “Make Yourself At Home”.

With his second album just around the corner, the world is soon to see what’s got everyone from the Hilltop Hoods to Joel Madden tweeting about him.

“If you’re into your hip-hop, I suggest you follow & look into Purpose”

Highly evolved! a song charged almost solely by felt emotion is a stunning thing. This grows so much further than the brief time it's on.

The four modelesque artists connect to bring a a strong effort that is bound to be bumping from cars and BBQs from here to some beach that's heaps far from here. Definitely a tune to play loud throughout the festive season.
