Sydney LGBTQI+ artist Lavrence has returned with the follow up to his hit single, “My Space” (released earlier this year), with an equally joyous and life-affirming track, “Radio Man”.
A song about self-image and identity, the song explores the idea of ‘success’ and the notion that it can be cultivated, felt and even experienced from within – regardless of outside perception.
Written/produced alongside Sydney DJ and producer Bobby Gray, and mastered by Brendan Zacharias, the track has all the 80’s synths, drum machines and underlying groove that a listener could wish for, along with an earworm chorus that is sure to get you moving.
“It’s a song about validating yourself over seeking it from external factors,” said Lavrence. “Ultimately, I’m telling you I’m a star - I’m not waiting for you to call me one.”
Lavrence’s taste for performance was quickly established after growing up in a music obsessed household, and quickly racing home from school each day to perform “Spice” by The Spice Girls, dressing up as either Ginger or Posh. He later honed these skills at a performing arts high school, where he studied singing, dancing and acting.
2019 has already seen the ambitious rising star grace the stage at the huge Heaps Gay Pardi Gras at Manning Bar, Birdcage at Sly Fox for their 7th birthday, Honcho Disko, Fur Coat Social, Cherch at Knox Street Bar, Canned Fruit at Secret Garden Bar, and many more following his performance debut at Heaps Gay’s The Haus Of Acrylic party at The Imperial Hotel, Sydney.
His break out single “Shine” garnered airplay on FBi Radio and Radio Adelaide and received high praise by outlets such as Purple Sneakers, Pilerats and AuspOp, while the follow up “My Space” was premiered on Music Feeds and received rave reviews on triple j Unearthed from the likes of Declan Byrne, Dave Ruby Howe and Gemma Pike.
“Radio Man” is available now on all digital platforms.
