It has been a big week for the young MC/producer who is 3 weeks away from delivering his beyond anticipated debut album Where It Starts. Wednesday saw his most recent single Comin Home feat. Illy, Jimmy Nice & Joyride get added to rotation on triple j, a huge feat for an entirely independant artist without label support.
Perhaps the most fascinating and defining detail of Purpose’s recent newfound light is that he has established it by working at a level that has allowed him to keep pace with his peers despite having no backing at all.
The following day triple j Unearthed released their Top 50 Most Played artists of 2012, announcing Purpose as the #1 Highest Played artist of 2012 across all genres! With a long and strong history in the underground and the doors to the industry slowly opening 2013 is set to be an eventful and successful year for Purpose.
Whispers had gotten around on Wednesday that Nova had announced Purpose and Vents as being added to the monster Clipsal 500 line up, and he closed out the week today by taking to social media to confirm this. The event on March 1st will see him perform alongside Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, Illy, Pez & Vents in what is sure to be one of the biggest nights in Adelaide entertainment for the year.
Where It Start’s will be available in stores nationally February 8th, 2013.
