From his beginnings studying jazz at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts, LANKS has grown steadily into a prolific songwriter, producer and artist in the Australian music scene. He has toured with the likes of Rufus Du Sol, Glass Animals, Vera Blue, Ry X, Broods and has had +100 million streams and a platinum record across his 4 albums, 6 EP’s and countless collaborations.
After moving from Australia to the US in December, 2019 (3 months prior to the COVID outbreak), he went into a kind of hibernation period alongside much of the world.
In 2021 he re-emerged with a double album, SPIRITS PT.1 + 2, working with diverse collaborators such as Alice Ivy, RY X and HWLS (a regular Flume collaborator) and the album went on to receive nominations for the coveted AMP prize in Australia and an electronic album of the year nomination at the AIR Awards.
In 2022, LANKS’ music reached many corners of the globe through 2 songs, Rear View and bitter Leaf, being feature songs on Mindy Kaling’s #1 Netflix show, Never Have I Ever, resulting in charting in the top 200 shazam singles chart in the US.
Described by Gemma Pike from triple j as a “triple threat” – a strong topline writer, vocalist, and producer, 2023 holds many exciting developments ahead for this Brooklyn-based Australian creator.
