After selling out his debut Australian tour last September, genre-defying American musician Teddy Swims returns to the country this August for a five-date national run.

For his second run in Australia, Swims is hitting Perth and Adelaide for the first time.

The Atlanta, Georgia, singer will perform theatre headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Auckland with his electric live band, Freak Freely.

Famous for his rich baritone, a plethora of tattoos, and genre-crossing chameleon sound in country, rock, pop, funk and soul music, Swims (real name Jaten Dimsdale) has a large following that’s increasing every day - into the millions.

The grandson of a Pentecostal preacher, Swims grew up inspired by Al Green and playing American football, performing in metal, punk, and hip-hop outfits as a teen. In 2019 while living in Texas, his father encouraged him to post covers on YouTube. Millions of people watched his videos covering songs by Marvin Gaye, The Weeknd, Amy Winehouse, Billie Eilish, and more; Swims signed with Warner Music in 2020. 

2021’s Tough Love EP and the subsequent Sleep Is Exhausting EP (2022) immediately propelled him onto playlists, including Spotify’s New Music Friday, Retro Pop and Just Good Music, Amazon’s Platinum Pop and Fresh Pop, plus highlights on Tidal, Apple Music, and Pandora.
