After selling out his first London show in June, acclaimed New Zealand artist Marlon Williams returns for his first headline tour of the UK and Europe this October/November – opening with a night at The Lexington on October 19 and taking in six UK dates before moving on to Ireland, France, Belgium and Germany.

Now based in Australia, Williams is riding high off the back of a huge 12 months in his homelands. His debut album, which is set for a full worldwide release in early 2016, charted at number 4 in its opening week and has already featured on countless album of the year so far lists, prompting it’s supporting tour to sell out weeks in advance.

Marlon Williams, now 24, grew up singing in the Christchurch cathedral choir, before his punk-rocker father turned him onto country music in his teens. He founded The Unfaithful Ways at 17, with his high school friends and their science teacher, and quickly gained national attention Down Under, touring with Band of Horses and Justin Townes Earle, and picking up a Critics Choice award nomination at the 2011 New Zealand Music Awards for their debut album Free Rein.

Williams met acclaimed country singer Delaney Davidson in 2011, and the pair began performing as a duo. Over two years they released three volumes of the series, Sad But True: The Secret History Of Country Music Songwriting, garnering critical acclaim, including the New Zealand country song and country album of the year in 2013.

Relocating to Melbourne in mid-2013, Williams began performing solo around town and built a cult following playing a residency at local venue the Yarra Hotel. His reputation built nationally in 2014, with major festival and television appearances leading to sold out tours of Australia and New Zealand. Williams will precede the release of his debut album on European shores with this forthcoming October/November tour.
