Known for his spellbinding lyricism, experimental attitude and socially-conscious outlook, Kojey Radical is the kind of artist that feels destined for greatness.

Prior to the release of his debut record in 2022, he had already caused quite a stir with his many single and EP releases, including collaborations with industry giants such as Kae Tempest, Amaarae, Masego, Loyle Carner and Mick Jenkins.

The artist is wasting no time, with a second album currently in the works. Most recently, he can be heard featuring on tracks including Emmeline’s Dust, SHY FM’s Good Morning, SOLOMON’s Phases and Mahalia’s Wassup.

As a musician, poet, visual artist and aspiring actor, Kojey lives and breathes his art. “I’ve always seen myself as a servant of creativity,” said Kojey. “I’m only here to contribute. Outside of that it’s not about me.

Fusing hip hop, jazz, RnB, spoken word and funk, Kojey has created a sound that is entirely his own. Australian fans will have the chance to hear him live for the first time ever when he touches down this September.

Tickets to see Kojey Radical will go on sale on August 16 with a presale for Frontier members opening on August 14.
