From a regular Aussie high schooler, to getting signed by the largest record label in the world, Kian Brownfield’s life changed overnight with one song.

Who is Kian I hear you ask? We did what everyone does when they want to find out more about a person, stalk their Instagram. Naturally.

Here are 5 things we uncovered about Kian from having a good old Insta stalk. 🔎


1. He has a BANGER called ‘Waiting’. 

Kian released his track ‘Waiting’ on July 20th 2018, a song that would soon go on to change his life (Side note – it’s a BANGER). If you haven’t heard it you can stream it here.


2. He is the 2018 Triple J Unearthed Winner

Ben and Liam from the Australian radio station Triple J surprised Kian at his High School in Castlemaine Victoria to announce he was the winner of Triple J Unearthed 2018, a competition aimed at discovering hidden talent in Australia. The moment it all began…


3. He is signed to Republic Records

In November last year Kian signed a new recording deal with the team at Republic Records globally and EMI Music in Australia. Let’s hope this means much more music is on the horizon!


4. He has played at Splendour in the Grass

Last year Kian played on the Splendour In The Grass Mix It Up stage alongside friend and Australian rapper Baker Boy. Kian is the featured vocalist on Baker Boy’s track ‘Cloud 9’ which the pair performed to a crowd of over 5,000 people! (FYI: He is also performing as himself at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival in Australia)


5. He has rad fashion sense

Musical accomplishments aside, Kian has an epic sense of style! Everyone will soon start curling and dying their hair black, you heard it here first!
