Conrad Sewell is a dynamic new singer-songwriter from Brisbane Australia whose debut single “Hold Me Up” was released on March 10 via Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment
Entertainment Weekly calls the track an “upbeat, anthemic, just-about-impossible-to-not-get-swept-away-in pop track,” while Idolator says “It’s a huge song with an instantly hummable chorus.” Conrad’s first NYC show earlier this year had Rolling Stone calling Conrad a “Rising star” and likened elements of his performance to everyone from Sam Smith, Pharrell and Queen.

On March 11, Conrad was featured on NBC’s Today Show as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month where he performed his haunting ballad “Start Again.” At SxSW, Public Radio International caught up with him for a special acoustic performance of “Hold Me Up” and proclaimed “he’s going to be huge.”
Conrad recently completed a national tour of Australia supporting Ed Sheeran. “Hold Me Up” has already garnered major airplay in Australia and has been performed live on their very popular morning show Sunrise.
Conrad’s voice and songwriting can currently be heard on superstar DJ Kygo’s smash “Firestone,” which has been streamed over 100 million times on Spotify, and reached #2 on their global song chart (and debuted at #1 on the US viral chart). The pair debuted a beautiful stripped down version of “Firestone” live on Norway’s Skavlan TV where the track reached #1 on their singles charts.
