Award-winning singer-songwriter Dan Sultan has earned a legion of fans playing his distinctive blend of country, soul and rock 'n' roll, becoming a much loved fixture of the Australian music landscape in the process.
Growing up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Sultan started playing guitar at the tender age of four and wrote his first song at the age of ten.
Little did he know that years later his debut single would win Single Release of the Year at the 2007 Deadly Awards and be played on airwaves across the country.
With the release of his second and highly acclaimed album Get Out While You Can, Sultan made his mark on the Australian music scene, collecting multiple Deadly, AIR and ARIA awards for the release and, along with his band, delivered powerhouse performances reputed to be amongst the most talked about shows in the country.
Making his screen debut in the 2009 film Bran Nue Dae, Sultan successfully added a third hyphenate to his professional title and hinted at a longstanding love of film and filmmaking.
