After a whirlwind run of sold-out shows last year, Canadian-American singer-chameleon Jonny Craig will be back for more in May, this time accompanied by a full band.

Craig first made a name for himself as lead vocalist of pop-punk outfit Ghost Runner Third, before breaking into the US post-hardcore scene as frontman of Dance Gavin Dance and later, Emarosa. The formation of supergroup Isles & Glaciers crystallised his success in the world of post-hardcore, but it wasn’t until Craig began pursuing his solo musical adventures that he really came into his own.

Possessing a baritenor range and a distinctive, soul-influenced style, Craig’s debut solo record A Dream Is A Question You Don’t Know How To Answeris a testament to the 27-year-old’s tremendous vocal chops. Currently in the process of finishing a forthcoming album slated for release mid-year, Craig will be joined on stage by acoustic duo This Wild Life, MC Kyle Lucas and Queensland rockers Red Beard.

Earlybird tickets are available now for Jonny Craig’s all-ages show at The Hi-Fi on Saturday May 10and an 18+ show at The Small Ballroom in Newcastle on Sunday May 11.
