Ziggy Alberts is an independent singer/songwriter, free-surfer & environmental enthusiast from the East Coast of Australia. Picking up the guitar in 2011, Ziggy is pushing the boundaries and expectations of self-funded independent artists and continues to share his music around the world to his dedicated grassroots following. He sings heartfelt stories of personal endeavours and experiences, ocean-side upbringing, environmental issues and life on the road.
At only 24 years old Ziggy Alberts has released four records, co-founded his own label Commonfolk Records, played sold out tours across the world, and his music has effortlessly amassed over 95 million streams, globally.
Laps Around The Sun – upcoming album – will be Ziggy’s 5th record, following Feels Like Home (2012), Made of Water (2013), Land & Sea (2014) and Four Feet in the Forest EP (2016).
“Folk-hewn but modern-facing, his work sits alongside those early Ben Howard cuts or even Jack Johnson, that kind of slick but still endearingly earnest musicality.” – Clash
“Fan Fave: The rise and rise of Ziggy Alberts” – Triple J
“Youthful songwriter Ziggy Alberts’ sound has been described as ‘coastal folk’. It’s an apt description, with ‘Laps Around The Sun’ demonstrating both the warmth and loneliness of the coast.” – Songwriting Magazine
