A celebrated live performer, Marlon Williams has wowed audiences the world over, playing major festivals, joining the likes of Lorde and Florence + The Machine live on-stage, and appearing on international late night television programs, Conan and Later with Jools Holland.

With Williams’ anticipated third solo album My Boy released on Friday 9 September, the distinguished singer-songwriter is emerging anew. Gone is the solemn, country-indebted crooner with the velvet voice – in his place comes a more playful, shape-shifting creature.

Across My Boy’s eleven songs, Williams’ takes listeners on a sonic and emotional journey which the artist explains is intentional; “As a live performer one of my favourite things to do is blindside people with upsetting mood shifts. I really wanted that to come across on this record.”

Following the release of his second album, 2018’s stunning portrait of a breakup, Make Way For Love, Williams’ has become an in-demand collaborator, recording duets with Courtney Barnett, Paul Kelly and Yo-Yo Ma amongst others. My Boy parlays this flush of worldly experience into a vivid, dynamic record as spirited, complex and kinetic as the unfolding life of its performer.

An exquisite live artist, Marlon Williams is currently on the road taking his My Boy Tour across North America, and from mid-October lands in Europe for extensive headline dates. Don’t miss your chance to experience Marlon Williams live in concert in February 2023, when he returns to Australian shores.
