About Dan Sultan

By fusing myriad roots traditions with contemporary and classic rock and pop, songwriter Dan Sultan conjures the varied tones of his home country of Australia in his bare-desert blues and big-city soul. He was born in Melbourne in 1983 and spent his youth looking up to guitar heroes like Jimi Hendrix, but he embraced a decidedly folky sound on his debut album, 2006’s Homemade Biscuits, with songs like the horn-blasted “Your Love Is Like a Song”. Sultan is first and foremost a storyteller, and his 2009 record, Get Out While You Can, provides one of the best examples of his skills as a wordsmith: the dark, hard-knock-life tale “Old Fitzroy”. In 2014, Blackbird signalled a heavier rock sound (see the swaggering “Under Your Skin”), and 2017 brought Killer, which he opened with a nod to his Indigenous roots on “Drover”—about the 1966 Wave Hill walk-off strike—and added a weighty gospel edge on “Kingdom”.
