Bio

Producer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Tyson Kraft picked up the drums at age six. Exposed to an eclectic palette of music from a young age, music quickly became central to the Australian-born artist of mixed descent.

Drawing on futuristic waves of pop, lush and nostalgic electronica, Kraft’s production pays homage to the analog-rich, electronic sounds discovered throughout the 20th century, while combining contemporary cuts of R&B with shimmering, warm and stirring vocals.

Kraft’s songwriting verges on the extremes of introspection and reveals a softer side to his outgoing persona. A passionate teaching academic at one of Australia’s leading universities, Kraft’s music offers a unique contrast to the personality conveyed during the lectures given to his prized students.

This year has seen Kraft pick up considerable momentum, clocking over a million streams across online platforms. Recognising this, The Kite String Tangle signed Kraft’s anthemic single, ‘Let You Go’ to Exist Recordings. Soon after, national tastemaker, triple j recognised Kraft as a finalist in the RÜFÜS DU SOL national remix competition, for his genre-bending reimagining of the dance trio’s track, ‘New Sky’.

In 2019, Kraft revealed he is also the force behind Harla, a newly emerged house music project, which has since joined forces with Atlantic/Warner Music partnership dance imprint, Parametric Records, following the breakout success of his debut single, ‘When You’re Lonely’.

Me, holding a boombox above my head on the lawn of my soulmate with this song blaring towards their window. Probably won't help but still a very nice moment for onlookers.

The fact you're a multi-instrumentalist shines through this. You can't program that organic nature to the sounds.
