MARCH 14TH & MARCH 15TH
FOLLOWING SUCCESS OF SOLD OUT US HEADLINE TOUR

RELEASED MARCH 22
Pre-Order A Place We Knew Here
Wrapping up his sold out North American tour, multi-platinum selling artist Dean Lewis will be playing two showcases at SXSW in Austin, TX on March 14 at The Stubhub/Culture Collide Showcase at 10:00 pm and on March 15 at The Communion Showcase at St. David’s Church at 10:00 pm.
This comes on the heels of announcing of his highly anticipated debut album A Place We Knew, to be released world-wide on Friday, March 22nd. A Place We Knew includes global hits ‘Be Alright’, ‘Waves’ and brand new single ‘7 Minutes’. For Lewis, the title A Place We Knew encapsulates the bittersweet memories of past relationships.
Lewis sought out several producers to collaborate with on his new album. Edd Hollowayand Nick Atkinson, the British team behind ‘Waves’ and ‘Be Alright’, are ever-present and so too is Melbourne’s John Castle (‘Don‘t Hold Me’ and ‘Chemicals’) and Dann Hume(‘Time to Go’ and title-track ‘A Place We Knew’). Sydney-based producer Dylan Nash, whom Lewis refers to as “almost like the co-producer for the whole album,” ties a thread between the 12 songs that were written and recorded all over the world giving A Place We Knew its cohesive sound.
Lewis is currently #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart this week on the strength of his breakout single ‘Be Alright,’ which is also #29 on the Billboard Hot 100. With over a billion streams of his music globally, Dean has topped local and international charts with ‘Be Alright,’ achieving GOLD certification by RIAA in the US in February. Globally the single is approaching 650 million combined streams achieving multi-platinum, platinum and gold status sales worldwide.
