    Marlon Williams returns with his first headline tour in over a year, supporting his new single ‘Vampire Again’ and playing new songs from his forthcoming sophomore album, due in 2018.

    After two years of touring his acclaimed self-titled debut album, Williams has taken time this year to write and record new material, alongside some brief stints on the road supporting Bruce Springsteen, acting in a Hollywood film, and playing festivals in North American and Europe, including Newport Folk Festival and Pickathon.

    Williams’ debut release saw him sign with US label Dead Oceans, and tour the world, performing on CONAN, Later…with Jools Holland, and picking up both an ARIA Nomination and Best Male and Breakthrough Artist at the New Zealand Music Awards.

    Vampire Again sees Williams go in a new direction musically, showcasing the swagger and vibrancy of his live shows, exemplified by an instant classic music video shot in collaboration with legendary UK photographer Steve Gullick. It’s fun, catchy, with typically twisted humour, and has already become a fan favourite at shows this year.

    Deca is a New York based rapper, producer and visual artist originally from Denver, CO. He has self-released five albums, and has gained a reputation for his meditative production, introspective lyricism, and raw, emotionally evocative themes.

    Deca’s lyrics touch on universal truths that take us on an introspective journey through vivid physical and psychological landscapes. Dabbling in the spiritual and ephemeral, he navigates easily through classical literary tropes and mystical parables, presenting an allegory of our struggles with human existence. He lassos these otherworldly themes and drags them down to earth making them both transcendent and temporal.

    As a true student of his genre and master of his craft, Deca produces beautiful harmonies, melodies and grooves, over which his lyrics soar in a self-contained dreamscape. Deeply personal and relatable, he delivers an autobiography hidden in his carefully crafted similes and metaphors giving a glimpse into the mind of a true artist.

    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
