Ones to Watch: Chet Faker

All this week, KUTX is highlighting the “Ones To Watch”–seven must-see artists at SXSW 2014.

Nicholas James Murphy is an Australian musician who goes by the name Chet Faker. The moniker is an homage to jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, whose stripped-down sound is a big influence. There are traces of jazz in Chet Faker’s music, but it’s mostly electronic, built around atmospheric textures and Faker’s voice. Take a listen to his profile below, and catch him at SXSW 2014:

Monday, Mar 10: The Mohawk, 8:00pm
Wednesday, Mar 12: Clive Bar, 11:00-11:45pm (official showcase)
Thursday, Mar 13: Hype Hotel, 1:00pm
Saturday, Mar 15: The Madison, 8:00-8:45pm (official showcase)
