Bendigo is probably one of the last places you would expect to find Grammy-winner, producer and writer for a stack of chart-topping and platinum-selling singles, BMI Urban Award ‘Songwriter of the Year’ and ‘Producer of the Year’ and BET Award-winner T-Pain, but it is happening. Born Faheem Rasheed Najm, T-Pain released his debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga, in 2005. Around the same time he established record label Nappy Boy Entertainment. The tour shines the light on his forthcoming release Stoicville: The Phoenix, which T-Pain describes as “a city in my mind that I created. It’s basically like my happy place”. He created it after discovering his son is autistic. Star Bar, Bendigo – October 2.
