About :
Whatslively presents Sydney’s evocative Soul Funk Brother “Mike Champion” in a highly anticipated album release show for his sophomore LP “Experience”. MD’d by the respected Teddy Riley approved “Sergio Selim”, fans are set to witness the birth of a new era in homegrown internationally fuelled Soul R&B and Funk. The live show will incorporate released cuts from both his new LP “Experience” as well as his debut release “Young Boy Old Soul” (Luv Mathematics, Mike Teqniq, Under Pressure, I.L.O.V.E.Y.O.U) and exclusive unreleased material.

Coming of his recent headline tour of Japan Mike Champion is finally bringing his live show to Australian soil where he has promised to deliver what Japanese fans have labelled “The Mike Champion Experience”. Champion will be hitting stages across the country before leaving for London and throughout Europe to supply the demand for the ‘Young Boy’ sound.

Mike Champion is a South African/Australian, international singer/songwriter whose distinct sound lives at the intersection of R&B, Nu Soul, and Funk. His insightful lyrics reflect his “young boy, old soul” storytelling approach to songwriting while his uniquely silky vocal tone and cross- genre sound prove that you can be eclectic and accessible all while staying true to your own artistic vision. Champion is especially recognised for his high energy live shows. This multi-talented, independent and fiercely creative visionary makes him one of the most intriguing cross-genre global up-and-coming artists today.
