Chet Faker is set to release his debut album ’Built on Glass’ April 15th via MapleMusic Recordings and Downtown. Two years in the making it brings together all his influences from house to R&B and fuses it together with his smokey vocals. ‘Built on Glass’ will surely further cement Chet Faker as one of the most unique artists of 2014.
In 2011, Nicholas Murphy recorded a cover of ‘No Diggity’ late one night just for his friends. Shared by a handful of people, the song spread like wildfire until reaching #1 on the indie blog charts Hype Machine, and so the Chet Faker identity was born — a nod to Chet Baker’s singing style but incorporating influences from a youth spent producing house and disco.
