A multi-dimensional teen with a neo-spiritual vibe and songwriting abilities beyond his years KIAN wrote “Waiting” at the age of 14, recorded it at 15 and releases his sophomore track just as he turns 16 years old.

Written with the insights of someone much older Waiting is a reflection on the trepidation behind uncharted feelings when interested in someone new. “It’s about that feeling of uncertainty when you don’t know if they like you back – I know it’s childish but I reckon everyone has found themselves in this insecure hole at some point in their lives no matter what age” says KIAN. The song is written as a story; guy meets a girl and is battling with himself over whether or not he should express his feelings about her or just wait. “Hidden within the lyrics are some things that relate to me personally along with metaphorical thing to move the story along.”

A deep pop song this infectious track will be performed live for the first time at BIGSOUND 2018. Here KIAN will debut his four piece band performing a 30 minute set featuring all his own material except for one banger track by his favourite artist Frank Ocean.
KIAN’s debut “Too Far Gone” was instantly added to triple j who listed him in their ‘best new music’ earlier this year. Both this song and “Waiting” will feature on a forthcoming album to be released in the first half of 2019.

KIAN stepped into the spotlight with his killer chorus on Baker Boy’s debut track Cloud 9 back in May 2017.  16-year-old KIAN hails from the goldfield town of Castlemaine, Vic. A life surrounded by music, songwriters, and rappers – he’s no stranger to the inner workings of the music scene.

Since the age of two KIAN’s been travelling with his dad making music in remote Indigenous communities. It was at Beswick Community [NT] that KIAN met Baker Boy. Aged 13 & 17 the connection was instant. A few years on the crew were at a loose end and decided to create Cloud 9. KIAN stepped up to the microphone and delivered his killer hook smashing it out of the park. Inspired and encouraged by Baker Boy KIAN began focusing on his own songs.  Since that time he has been listed in triple j’s “best new music” [Feb 2018]. “Waiting” is the first song he wrote, and the second to be released after releasing his debut “Too Far Gone” with Vince the Kid earlier this year.  The two continue to work together.
