The softer than usual, layered electronic arrangements of BAYNK is the afterthought of singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Jock Nowell-Usticke who broke out in 2016 accidentally when a blogger from Hillydilly stumbled across the one song “Sundae” he uploaded before having all his music equipment stolen whilst backpacking around Europe.
Laptop stolen and unaware of the initial song’s success, the New Zealander later found himself on several festival line-ups around the country, most notably Laneway. His 2016 single “What You Need” featuring NÏKA earned him early critical praise hitting #1 on Hype Machine and support from major tastemaker YouTube channels such as Majestic Casual and Chill Nation. Both this and his follow up single “Poolside” were picked up by multiple New Zealand Radio DJ’s as well as tripleJ and SiriusXM internationally.
After a 26-date North American support run with Matoma and three sold-out debut headline shows in New Zealand, BAYNK joined Australian producer Hayden James on his fall U.S. tour as special guest last November before returning to NZ to perform Laneway once more. Summer 2018 saw BAYNK set out on a debut U.S. headline tour, selling out all four shows in NYC, Los Angeles, Washington DC and Denver. Prior to this was a *sold out* spring 2018 tour with Kasbo, which traversed 10 cities across N. America.
BAYNK most recently hit the road on his fall 2018 U.S. tour as special guest with San Holo.
Since 2015 Australian songwriter/producer Max Byrne, aka Golden Vessel, has been crafting a unique sound that blends elements of electronic music with hip-hop, RnB and alternative pop, as he continues to explore different songwriting styles and techniques to help create a truly unique and engaging sound.
“I want to convey in my music everything I love about music. Whether it’s incorporating different genres into one song, or different processes and homages to different times” – Max Byrne
