2019 has seen Seeckts take the Australian country music scene by storm, starting in January with the release of Old Blood, the first taste from his long-awaited debut album The Heart Of The City. The single was instantly picked up for play by Double J, Twang on RRR, ABC Evenings, as well as Acid Country and 5 Feet High & Rising on PBS. It was added to rotation on ABC Country in February, where it remained one of the top 10 most played songs on the station for the next 3 months. Old Blood was featured on Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Playlist for March, with Seeckts being recognised as an artist to watch in 2019. The film clip for Three Soldiers, the latest single from the album, was featured on Memphis’s DittyTV in July, with host Amy Wright praising Seeckts’ vocal power and bold song writing.
Seeckts shows no sign of slowing down either, with more tour dates planned, including a trip to the Nashville in September to showcase at AmericanaFest. A recipient of this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival’s Emerging Artist Grant, Seeckts has been invited back to play at the festival again this year, after wowing crowds in 2018.
