Cult DIY troubadour Ceschi announces Australian tour for 2022

The crème de la crème of genre-bending artists will head to Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart, Perth, and Melbourne in November and December.

American folk-rap artist for the barely alive Ceschi (pronounced chess-key) will be returning to Australia for the first time in over ten years. The tour will kick off in Sydney on November 24, and take to Adelaide, Hobart for a headline slot at HOBOFOPO, Perth, and Melbourne for two shows, before returning to Sydney on December 4.

This will be the cult DIY troubadour’s last solo tour for a while before he focuses on a new band called Codefendants featuring members of Get Dead and Fat Mike from NOFX.

The American hip-hop musician, singer and songwriter’s music was born out of the worlds of underground Hip Hop, Hardcore Punk and Folk. His version of songwriting may include machine-gun-speed raps or emotive ballads inspired by Latin American troubadours. Over the last decade, he has toured North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Although it’s difficult to describe the type of music that Ceschi makes, it is not difficult to feel the ferocious heart that is behind it all.

The tour arrives off the back of his latest single, ‘This & That’ featuring Tsoh Tso, his first taste of new music since his 2021 album This Guitar Was Stolen Along With Years of Our Lives. The album is filled with 10 tracks of guitar-inspired songs and signals a departure of sorts, distanced from his most recent work, releases geared more toward Hip Hop culture.
