Australian-New Zealand recording artist, actor and television personality, Stan Walker, burst onto the music scene in 2009, winning the seventh and final season of Australian Idol.

After winning the competition, Stan went on to sign a recording deal with Sony Music Australia and has since become a multi-platinum recording artist with hits such as Black Box, Unbroken and Choose You. His song Stand Up featured in the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Stan has recorded and toured with Australian singer Jessica Mauboy as well as recording with Young Sid, Kayo, co-written with DNZ and supported international artist Beyonce on her 2013 Australian tour.

Stan has developed into a multi faceted artist at the height of his powers, “I know what I want now. I know where I want to be. I know what it looks like and sounds like.” Recording his latest album is not all that keeps Stan busy, he has also been shooting a movie and working on The X Factor New Zealand.

He made his debut into acting in February 2013 when he played the lead role of Turei in the feature film Mt Zion, also starring Temuera Morrison. More recently he has been shooting the upcoming Born to Dance in which he again plays one of the lead characters, Benjy. Born to Dance is a coming of age story told through the eyes of an ambitious young man from Auckland who dreams of being a professional hip-hop dancer and is set to be released nationwide in Australia in November. Stan has also written the lead single from the film, Start Again.

Stan has also been a personality on The X Factor New Zealand since 2013. He is a judge and mentor on the TV series. Stan says, “Acting taps into a different type of creativity, which was refreshing, and mentoring other artists on X Factor helped me to step up to tackle all the different aspects of my own career.”

Making a bold move with his latest album, Stan decided to press pause on a batch of his new and original material and instead cover some of the greatest soul songs ever recorded. He explains, “These are songs I’ve loved forever and songs I’ve fallen in love with all over again. They’ve always been with me and I wanted to make them my own.” The album includes covers of songs by soul giants including Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Bob Marley and more.

Recording this album provided Stan with some extra breathing space on his own music as well as adding an extra dimension to what he has delivered as an artist so far. He is an artist that knows what he is doing and has set the direction and delivered, “You’ve got to come and see it live! The one thing I trust myself to do is deliver these songs in a live setting, they’re great to hear on an album but on stage is where they really come together.”
