FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MEDIA RELEASE
Australia’s rock n roll heartthrob Reece Mastin is gearing up for a special one-night only Melbourne show, along with special guest singer-songwriter Taylor Henderson. This is a rare opportunity for music fans to see two amazing Aussie performers on the one bill as they share music from their new releases.
Reece Mastin doesn’t really need an introduction to Australian music lovers, he’s made an indelible mark on the local music industry since winning television talent show X-Factor in 2011. His catchy style of music and his enigmatic stage presence has won his fans around the nation. The thing that stands him apart from many of his contemporaries is that he is a genuinely talented musician. He’s been writing songs since he was 12 and has been heavily involved in the direction of his music from the start. His latest single Girls (All Around the World) is again showing music fans and critics alike that Reece is here to stay.
Still in his teens, Reece’s undeniable talent has earned him fans of all ages around the country. His debut album hit #1 and went twice platinum. He had three consecutive chart topping singles that all worked their way into the Top 5 of the ARIA charts. Paving the way into 2014 with his new single and his current Restless tour, Reece has a busy year planned - his biggest yet. The year 2013 entailed taking time to work on his solo music and collaborating with some fantastic fellow musicians and producers. His diary for 2014 features a new album, a forthcoming arena tour and a string of international show dates.
This special Melbourne show is an exciting opportunity for fans to hear new songs from the forthcoming album release, along with Reece’s smash hit songs such as Shout It Out, Shut Up and Kiss Me, Rockstar and Goodnight. When it comes to playing to fans, Reece says Australian audiences are the most supportive. “They thrive off of live music,” he says. “They love getting out and supporting home grown artists. Best of all, they seem to really love an honest and loud rock show.”
Joining Reece for this special one-off Melbourne show is recent X-Factor finalist Taylor Henderson, who will also be sharing tracks from his latest release. His debut album Taylor Henderson was released in 2013 and immediately went to #1 on the ARIA Charts. His platinum-selling single Borrow My Heart garnered him fans around the country of all ages. Taylor has been earning recognition by Australian music fans for a few years now, thanks to his down-to-earth attitude and effortless style.
Taylor was initially recongised by music fans in 2010 when he auditioned for talent show Australia’s Got Talent with his father, Cam Henderson. Their duo audition earned them both solo competing roles on the show and it wasn’t long before Taylor had won the hearts of the nation. He was only 16 when he took out third position on the show (alongside his dad who took out second place). From that time he hasn’t stopped performing, often doing professional gigs and tours with his father.
In 2013 Taylor auditioned for X-Factor and immediately captured the attention of the judges. Throughout the series’ bootcamp and live shows, he continued to hold his own, garnering a new generation of fans who were mesmerised by his stunning vocals. Taking out the runner-up position, it was only a couple of days after the show wrapped that Taylor was offered a recording deal with Sony Music. His debut album release has already proved his popularity and with a massive 2014 planned, it’s evident the world really is Taylor Henderson’s oyster.
