Rolling Stone Awards 2013Chet Faker, born Nick Murphy in Melbourne, Australia, has started to make a name for himself in the down-tempo electronic scene.  At only 26 years of age, Nick has already won the title of Breakout Artist of the Year and Best Independent Single/EP at the Australian Independent Record Awards for his EP, Thinking in Textures.  He was first recognized for his cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” which was featured on a 2013 Super Bowl commercial for Beck’s beer.  His latest single, “1988,” is the second single of his debut album, Built On Glass, released on Future Classic/Downtown Records. “1998” is everything you could love in a down-tempo track, perfect mellow beats accompanied by sultry vocals that bring on waves of nostalgia.  His entire twelve track album is definitely worth a listen and can be purchased on iTunes here.  Chet Faker will be making his Chicago debut on May 20, 2014 at Lincoln Hall.  Enjoy!
