Ziggy Alberts is a coastal folk singer/ songwriter, free-surfer & environmental enthusiast from the East Coast of Australia.
Picking up a guitar for the first time in 2011, Ziggy immediately took to storytelling through his music and has since developed a standout independent career grown initially on busking, house shows and all-ages events.
After the success of his 2016 Australian regional ‘Start Over Summer Tour’ tour of 51 shows from East coast to West, followed by his 11 country ‘Tell Me’ 2017 European Tour, this independent folk musician is pushing the boundaries and expectations of unsigned artists.
Entirely self-funded and independent, Ziggy has released an impressive 3 records, reaching 75 million Spotify plays, 85 thousand followers on Instagram and consistently appears in the ‘Singer/Songwriter' charts on iTunes.
Returning home from Europe, Ziggy announced the release of his new single, Heaven, along with a capital city theatre tour around Australia for November 2017.
Following on the success of his hit single ‘Runaway’ and the ‘Four Feet In The Forest’ album which went to no.1 in the singer/songwriter charts, Ziggy’s new single ‘Heaven’ was charting 1 week after release.
The Heaven Tour saw Ziggy performing at his biggest headline shows to date. With 4 out of 5 shows officially selling out, Ziggy proved his ability in connecting with his audience despite the growing room sizes. Imagine 2000 people singing every word to ‘Gone’, then hearing a pin drop moments later.
These 5 theatre shows will certainly be remembered by Ziggy’s fans and could not have been a more beautiful setting for Ziggy to say goodbye to live performances of his ‘Land & Sea’ tracks.
In 2018, Ziggy established himself as a main stage artist at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, playing to a full, swooning crowd of 5,000 people. Playing on the Mojo Stage before household names, Tash Sultana and John Butler Trio, Ziggy gave the crowd an unforgettable performance – a small reflection of what is in store for his upcoming releases later this year, and the upcoming world tour in 2019.
