Jackson Dyer is an Australian singer-songwriter and producer based in Berlin. Growing up on the coast of Sydney, his Alternative/ Indie songs are infused with both the calm and restlessness of the ocean. At the start of 2013, Dyer first arrived in Berlin, where he progressed from playing on the streets to sharing the stage with Hozier, Hiatus Kaiyote, Alice Phoebe Lou, as well as playing a host of festivals and touring Europe extensively in support of Mighty Oaks.
After the release of three independent EPs and almost four years in Berlin, he decided to focus on writing his first Album and he returned to the shores of Australia. Conceived and completed in an isolated coastal town in Northern NSW, his Debut LP, Inlet, is heavily influenced by the Australian landscape and the awe-inspiring ocean that surrounded him as the album developed. Inlet is an optimistic and introspective collection of songs, blending field recordings of Australia’s natural wonders with Dyer’s evocative lyricism and spacious, electronic production.
The first single from Inlet is ‘CBSKY’, which embodies the solitude and open expanses of Australia’s regional areas. ‘CBSKY’ is centred around the conflicting emotions that many feel at the start of any great journey, a song of transition, of hope and yearning for what lies beyond the horizon, whilst still being tied to the past.
2018 has seen Dyer mark his return to European stages with a sold-out show in Berlin and performing for audiences in Ireland and at festivals like Fusion Festival.
His EP’s have garnered over 2 million plays on Spotify and praise from many:
● “With poetic, folk influenced songwriting and soul soaked vocals, it’s a beautiful
track to get lost in.” – IndieShuffle, ‘Steal Away’.
● “There are a few people in the music/indie scene here in Berlin who have been
constantly pushing forward and releasing nothing but touching and inspiring
music… Jackson Dyer is one of those people.” – Stereofox
● “With his voice alone, he could start a fire…” – Noisey Germany (“Alleine mit
seiner Stimme schafft er es ein Feuer zu entfachen…”)
● „Jackson Dyer’s ‘Compartments’ EP truly is something special.“ – MTV UK
● „Lovely. Just lovely.“ – Dom Alessio, JJJ Radio Australia, ‚The Absolute‘
