Although he has just turned 18 years old, Straalen is actually beginning phase two of his career in music. At the tender age of 12, he became the youngest ever artist to be signed by Sony Music Australia.
The Kirra local has since said goodbye to the record label, choosing to release his latest music independently. “I am excited to release my music as an independent artist and follow my heart. I just want to be real. I want to be true to myself and true to the fans that I hope will join me on this exciting journey ahead.”
Speaking on GC Uncovered tonight, Straalen told 1029 Hot Tomato’s Pete ‘Scoot’ Carter he enjoys writing positive songs. “I like to send a good message, a positive message and hopefully help someone,” he said.
