Melbourne, Australia’s Slow Dancer – a.k.a. singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Simon Okely – has announced his signing with ATO Records. To celebrate the signing, Slow Dancer shares a new music video for his track “Don’t Believe”.
Slow Dancer will make his U.S. debut next month, with performances in New York City, Los Angeles, and SXSW. He will also perform in London. See below for all forthcoming tour dates.
Okely has been writing, recording and independently releasing music under the moniker Slow Dancer since 2014, and is gearing up to release his sophomore album with ATO this spring. Slow Dancer is inspired by the music of his childhood and memories of long country drives through Western Australia listening to his parents’ rhythm and blues records. His music is deeply personal and wistful, calling upon the likes of Jose Gonzales, Kings of Convenience, and Fleetwood Mac.
