Schedule

Like any artist on the rise, Chet Faker has a packed touring schedule and can be found playing a range of music venues, clubs and festivals. There will be multiple dates throughout the UK and the rest of the globe, so be on the lookout for a gig near you. With 2014 performances scheduled for the III Points Festival in Miami, Florida; the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco, California; the Babylon in Istanbul, Turkey; the Coronet Theatre in London; The Ritz in Manchester the Art School in Glasgow, fans around the world will have a chance to see their favourite artist.

Trivia

Chet Faker chose his stage name in homage to Chet Baker. Faker is a big fan of Baker's and particularly likes his vocal style. He used to play in a band called Sunday Kicks and was part of an electronica duo, Knicks. Chet Faker decided not to go by his real name -- Nick Murphy -- as there's already another Australian musician by that name, and he didn't want confused fans of the original Nick Murphy showing up at his shows. Faker attributes his eclectic musical taste to his parents, and his influences include Bob Dylan and old Motown albums.

Artist

Chet Faker was born Nicholas Murphy in Melbourne in 1988. He takes on the role of both singer and songwriter, as well as being a producer. As an electronic musician, much of the material for his songs is created using computer software and dropping in samples and beats from elsewhere. However, he also plays keyboard and piano and uses both in his live performances.

Breakthrough

Strangely enough, Chet Faker's breakthrough came before he even had a record out. He decided to do a cover of the Blackstreet song "No Diggity" and put it up online. It went viral and hit the No. 1 spot on the Hypemachine chart in May of 2011. As a result, he got signed to Remote Control Records -- with which he released the Thinking in Textures EP -- and was later picked up by Future Classic Records. Thinking in Textures received an award for Best Independent Release from Rolling Stone at the Australia Awards.

Hit Albums

Chet Faker's debut full length album, Built on Glass, came out in April 2014 and achieved success both commercially and critically. The album hit the No. 18 spot in the UK indie charts but was even more successful in Faker's homeland, Australia, where it was No. 1 in the mainstream charts. The album seemed to be a big hit both in the indie press -- it received an applaudable 7.3 score from Pitchfork -- and with electronic and dance music fans. He has also won a number of awards, including the Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Australian Independent Records Awards.

Show Experience

You'd be excused for feeling dizzy at a Chet Faker show, as there's a lot going on. Faker tends to be surrounded by at least three keyboards and a variety of drum machines, sample pads and other gadgets that are beyond the ken of us mere mortals. Although many of these tracks are entirely digital, they take on a new meaning played live. There are all kinds of subtleties that don't come across on record, so getting hold of some Chet Faker tickets is a must for any fans of his music.
