Lakyn Releases New Single ‘West’ and October Tour

Receiving its first play this week on triple j’s Home & Hosed, ‘West’ is about Lakyn’s own ambition and self-worth – it’s about not getting too comfortable in any one place, and always pushing yourself to work harder, to do better.

Currently on tour with Vera Blue, Lakyn has also announced his own run of headline shows along the East Coast in October.

A native New Zealander, Lakyn first started making music when a broken ankle kept him off his skate board. The following years were filled with a Popular Reality TV Show, an acoustic EP, a crash course in production and some pretty intense self-reflection.

You can catch Lakyn playing in Melbourne in October with tickets available from
