The last few years of Conrad’s life have been a wild ride. He took home an ARIA for Song Of The Year with his #1 hit ‘Start Again’ in the same year that he received nominations for Breakthrough Artist and Best Pop Release, and featured on Kygo’s RIAA Platinum smash ‘Firestone’ which has accumulated more than 1 billion streams. Conrad took the track to the live stage with Kygo, before touring with Ed Sheeran and Maroon 5 on the some of the world’s biggest stages like Madison Square Garden and Coachella. Then came two more collaborations, ‘Taste The Feeling’ with the late Avicii and ‘Sex, Love & Water’ with Armin van Buuren.
Conrad’s meteoric rise didn’t come without its price, however. Last year, the singer opened up about his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, and how they had brought his career to a standstill.
In 2018, he pledged to turn it all around, pouring his newfound focus and drive into one of the biggest Australian singles of the year, ‘Healing Hands’. It brought Conrad his third ARIA nomination, racked up 21 million streams, and peaked at #1 on the Australian iTunes Singles Chart and #7 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
2019 will only be bigger, with Conrad’s debut album LIFE finally ready for release. Written and recorded over the last four years in LA, it features collabs with Grammy-nominated heavyweights like Jamie Hartman (Calvin Harris, James Bay, Kygo, Rag’N’Bone Man), Busbee (P!nk, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson) and Stuart Crichton (Elton John, Kesha, Kygo).
