Do you know Allday? If not, you probably should. Hailing from Blackwood (that would be the home of the Hilltop Hoods for those playing at home), Allday (Tom Gaynor) is part of Australia’s new era of hip hop. He began rapping at the age of ten, recorded his first track as a teenager, and would build his case winning battle after battle in his hometown. He soon caught the attention of triple j, before a move to Melbourne paid dividends. There he hooked up with producer C1, was unearthed by triple j and found a fan in 360. In mid-2013 he released his debut EP, Loners Are Cool. Such was the hype surrounding him that the release debuted at #1 on the AIR Independent Album Chart. His debut album is Startup Cult. Star Bar, Bendigo – August 8.
