When Seth Sentry’s first album, This Was Tomorrow, debuted at #6 on the ARIA charts, Seth was a bright young hopeful… a talented up-and-comer. Now, only a few years down the track, Seth is regarded as one of Australia’s premier rappers, with an iconic voice as warm and familiar as a hug from an old mate.
But, to put the question bluntly, what’s he done lately?
Well, besides touring and touring and touring, Seth’s been writing and recording his next album, and much to the delight of fans, the first taste is ready. Characteristically nostalgic, poignant and humorous; first single Run is Seth at his best, as he explores his childhood as a bored kid in a small town, making fun however ya can. Shoplifting chocolates, skating ledges and sifting weed flakes out of bong water. Days when, if the cops chased you, you’d just run.
A humble guy from humble beginnings, it’s Seth Sentry’s honesty that seems to win him his way into people’s hearts, and, like a time machine back to those humble beginnings, Run gives us a nostalgic glimpse at one of Australia’s most successful rappers, back when he was still just a little kid telling you to shut up.
Following the premiere of Run on triple j Breakfast with Matt & Alex, Seth has announced his first national headline tour for 2015. The tour heads to all major capital cities, as well as a handful of Seth’s favourite regional stops. Catch Seth Sentry performing all around Australia this February and March on the Run Tour 2015.
