Born in Michigan but now based in Berlin, Halo's music is ever-changing. Influenced by the sounds of Detroit, Germany and the UK, her multiple releases have seen Halo shift from more vocally clad tracks to ambient-pop and almost everything in between. Her first album, Quarantine released in 2012 on the acclaimed London-based label 'Hyperdub' was well received and was named The Wire Magazine's Album of the Year in 2012.
In October 2013, Halo released her second album, Chance of Rain on Hyperdubwhich was soon followed by her 2015 double EP, In Situ, released on London's Honest Jon's label. In addition to her album release in 2015, Halo formed an underground supergroup alongside Rashad Becker, Julia Holter and NH'Koxyen to release the collaborative EP, Terepa.
In addition to her songwriting, Halo hosts a regular show on Berlin Community Radio, having originally cut her teeth as a freeform DJ on the legendary WCBN-FM station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She also composed the soundtrack for Still Be Here, a Transmediale/CTM film commission starring the Japanese virtual pop star, Hatsune Miku, which debuted at Berlin's Haus der Kulturen der Welt, and was most recently shown at the Barbican Hall in London.
Earlier this year, Halo released her critically acclaimed third album Dust which featured contributions from Eli Keszler, Julia Holter, Michael Salu and Max D among others.
This January, Laurel Halo will tour the country, playing headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, as well as a slot at Sugar Mountain Festival and the National Gallery of Victoria's Triennial Exhibition in Melbourne.
Don't miss your chance to see Halo showcase her brand new album in a string of intimate shows across Australia.
