Lachlan first picked up a guitar in 2016 and in a few months he was writing original material, and just one year later, in October 2017, he played his first performance at Lizotte’s Newcastle.
In May 2018 Lachlan’s song ‘Little Things’ earned him the #1 spot on Triple J’s Unearthed Roots chart with Triple J ‘Roots n’ All’ presenter Nkechi Anele commenting, “There is something about Lachlan’s voice that makes you forget to breathe when you listen to this song.” and airplay on Triple J followed. ‘These Days’ held the #12 spot at the same time with Triple J Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe saying “There’s a coastal breeze blowing through this super chill track.”
He was invited to play the 2019 Bouddi Boogaloo and The Bitter and Twisted Festival and opened for Cold Chisel’s Ian Moss in July who asked him to open selected shows on his Matchbook 30th Anniversary tour, and he’s opened for Tex Perkins, Mark Wilkinson, Ash Grunwald and played his 1st opening spots in Sydney for Jordy Maxwell (The Newsagency) and Surftrash (Metro Theatre).
In August this year, he ventured to Byron Bay to record five songs with Garrett Kato with the new music, including a co-write with Garrett, seeing the light of day in the coming months.
Lachlan’s style and songwriting are as organic and as natural as the wind and as ARIA Hall Of Famer Kasey Chambers put it “Oh to have this much talent at that age!”
Chilled beyond his years, his future is bright. Very bright.
