Bio

Originally from Australia's Mornington Peninsula, Tones and I journeyed to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street, so Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for the year.

In 2019, Tones and I made chart history when she became the first artist to spend 24 weeks at #1 on the ARIA singles chart with her global smash ‘Dance Monkey’.
Since its release in May 2019, the hit single has reached #1 in 30 countries; including a record-breaking run of 11 weeks at #1 in the UK. Has amassed over 7 billion streams, held the #1 spot for the most streamed song globally for over 4 months, earned 3 x platinum certification in the US, while reaching multiplatinum or diamond certification in fifteen other countries, including 11 x platinum in Australia. Become the most Shazamed song of all time, is now officially one of the highest-streamed songs ever on Spotify. And reached the top 5 in the USA Billboard Hot 100, making it the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years.

Having recently won the 2020 International Songwriting Competition (ISC), Tones and I has continued her winning streak taking home the coveted “Song of the Year” and “Breakthrough Songwriter” awards at the 2020 Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) Music Awards. As well as achieving gold status for her debut EP ‘The Kids Are Coming’, and standalone track ‘Bad Child’.

Tones and I has showcased her staggering voice across performances of her breakout global hit ‘Dance Monkey’ and ‘Never Seen The Rain’ appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Voice and NBC’s Today show.

It's hard to find something to say about tones that hasn't already been said. She's the most talked about Australian artist of 2019, surmounting stores, streams and charts with ease. This is a new side to her that we hadn't yet seen and if anything, her ascent will continue faster than ever on the back of this one.
