The past four years have been an emotional and professional rollercoaster for Sewell, seeing him hit many career milestones, including landing his first ARIA Award for Song of The Year with his breakout ARIA number 1 hit ‘Start Again’, and amassing nearly 1 billion streams as the vocalist on Kygo’s RIAA platinum hit, ‘Firestone.’ He has toured with Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5 and Kygo, performing on some of the biggest stages around the globe includingMadison Square Garden and Coachella; joining forces with the late AviciionTaste That Feeling and bringing Sex, Love & Water to life forArmin van Buuren.
