It’s been a minute since we last checked in on Dean Lewis and he has certainly been up to a lot. Fresh off the release of his debut album and his first Auckland gig, our Aussie mate has been busy with his achievements and we couldn’t be prouder.

It’s now time for you to come out from the rock you’ve been living under and get yourself caught up on everything Dean has been up to lately. Must we do everything for you?!


He released his debut album!


On March 22, Dean released his highly anticipated debut album A Place We Knew and it’s so damn good. The popular hits ‘Waves’ and ‘Be Alright’ are chucked in with new singles ‘7 Minutes’ and ‘Stay Awake’ and each song helps to paint the overall picture of the sad nostalgia that Dean is after. If you haven’t listened yet, what the hell are you waiting for?


He’s dropped two new music videos

One for the regretful ‘7 Minutes’ that sees Dean visiting places and moments he used to belong to, and one for the hopeful ‘Stay Awake’ that depicts a metaphorical repetitive road trip.


He dropped into Jimmy Kimmel Live

To perform both those hits! And he absolutely smashed it.
