Featuring musician:

In late 2019 Sydney-based singer-songwriter Huck Hastings burst back onto the local music scene with a new single (and sound). After a period spent writing, ‘Hey Babe?’ and its accompanying music video marked the beginning of a new and invigorating direction for this exciting young songwriter. Upon its release ‘Hey Babe?’ was promptly added to rotation on FBi Radio and earned him a slot as their Independent Artist of the Week.

In March of 2021 Sydney-based singer-songwriter Huck Hastings released his debut full length offering in ‘Cheers To Progress’ and penned his first publishing deal with Gaga publishing. The album was featured in lists on NME and Junkee, had over half a million streams and sold out its first run of vinyl.

In the year since it’s release Hastings has been anything but quiet, serving up multiple singles with his two side-projects Hacky Sack and Hollow States (both placing in FBi Radio’s most played of 2021), a music video for his single ‘The Clincher’ – premiered on Triple J unearthed – and live performances supporting The Buoys, Andy Bull and Hachiku.

After spending the first half of 2022 experimenting with solitude in Stockholm, Hastings has returned
with follow-up single ‘Jane’ – a timeless and cleverly penned exploration of time and meaning.
