Baker Boy Drops National Headline Tour Dates & ‘Cool As Hell’ New Music Video

Fresh from being crowned the 2019 Young Australian Of The Year, voted #51 in triple j Hottest 100 for ‘Mr La Di Da Di’ and tearing up the stage at Laneway Festival, Baker Boy has now announced plans to hit the road for a bunch of headlining dates!

The Indigenous hip-hop star will head off round the country on tour this April, hitting stages in Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney, alongside Alice Springs’ Parrtjima Festival and Byron Bay’s Boomerang Festival (as part of Bluesfest).

The big announcement also coincides with the release of his freshly baked ~Cool As Hell~ music video, directed by Gabriel Gasparinatos, which features Baker Boy showing off his breakdancing skillz at various city and beach locations around Sydney.

“‘Cool as Hell’ is about letting the music take control of your body and that’s exactly what the film clip does too,” he explains. “It makes you feel bright and happy. Just makes you want to feel the music and dance.”

‘Cool As Hell’ also features Baker Boy’s family members, brother Adam and father Josiah.

Director Gabriel explains: “I wanted to map Danzal’s journey and visualise how a young boy from North East Arnhem Land made it onto (and is now dominating) the world stage, in a charming and excitable way.

“It was a last minute decision to include his brother Adam and father Josiah into the dance sequence that the latter choreographed during rehearsal,” he continues.

“But I felt that epitomised the clips meaning and intention and really brought it home.Led by his dancing that quite literally propels him through these scenarios, I wanted to capture the exciting journey of Baker Boy; which I believe is only getting started.”
