After a huge online / viral buzz from his self-released single and video ‘Slow Wind’, Dawn Raid Entertainment is pleased to announce the signing of RnB/Reggae artist SWISS to a worldwide deal for the release of his new EP Mr Slow Wind through Dawn Raid / FMG / Universal Records.
Currently residing in Brisbane, the 19 year-old Wellington-born singer of Tongan descent has gone from strength to strength, recently performing shows in Australia, New Zealand, and a four city tour of the United States plus supporting acts such as Nesian Mystik, J-Boog, Fiji, and 3 Houses Down. Swiss is also building a healthy fan base in the US and Hawaii as well as closer to home.
“The Reggae scene in New Zealand and the Pacific has been steadily growing over the last five years,” says Dawn Raid co-director, Brotha D. “I’ve been looking for a special young artist that can cross all boundaries and continue to push pacific-based reggae music on a world stage. Swiss has the talent.”
The first single from the EP ‘Slow Wind’ hits radio this week and is set to be an urban smash with the video already having well over 197,000 views on youtube.
"To sign with such a prolific and established label has been a blessing,” says Swiss. “For a label to sign and invest in someone at the age of twenty is always a risk, which is why I am so grateful for the team at Dawn Raid."
