42 - Singer-songwriter Conrad Sewell talks 'Firestone,' musical influences and his rockstar hair

Aug 20, 2018, 06:00 AM

Many people first heard the soulful voice of Conrad Sewell in the massive song "Firestone" with Kygo.  Since being released in late 2014, it's racked up billions of streams.  

The singer-songwriter, originally from Australia, also found success with his debut EP "All I Know," his Coca-Cola collaboration with the late Avicii and touring with Ed Sheeran and Maroon 5, among other things.

Life on the road took a toll on his life, however. He says he was drinking a lot and it affected a previous relationship. This period inspired more honest songwriting (and beautiful vocals), which you can hear in "Come Clean" and "Healing Hands" off his latest release Ghosts & Heartaches.

Conrad joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about growing up in Australia, his former band Sons of Midnight, the story behind "Firestone," songwriting, his musical influences, his latest release "Ghosts & Heartaches," his great hair and a lot more!
