See what all the hype is all about!
He is the type of artist who makes his audience feel like he is singing personally to them, whilst still making his audience feel like they are a part of something; something big and something meaningful and something important. One could attribute this to his ability to freestyle, drop random beats and be super sexy and slick whilst doing so.
triple j Unearthed music director had this to say: - "This dude's got something. It's chill and I could see appealing to both coastal knockabouts and fans of sensitive rap"; and other colleagues say: - "You're like an Australian Ed Sheeran - I love the way you combine genres to create something distinctive"; and - "These acoustic sensitive-guy feels got me all tingly".
To summarise Coast & Ocean in three words, he is honest, cheeky and witty.
