Conrad Sewell has announced that he will be holding an art exhibition and album launch event in Sydney on the evening of Thursday May 16. The Life exhibition will be inspired by Conrad's debut album Life, and will feature the photography works of Aussie creatives encapsulating the meaning of life through different perspectives.
Photographers will be able to submit photos by visiting this site. The most compelling and thought provoking images will then be chosen to be displayed at the exclusive exhibition. Sewell and a panel of creatives will decide on their favourite image with the winning image will be announced on the night. Sewell will also treat attendees to a very intimate performance of some of the songs from his debut album Life set to be released the following day on Friday May 17 through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
Sewell says; "I'm so excited to be able to celebrate the release of my album in such a special way, this album is my life's work so it feels perfect to be teaming up with other artists for the launch. I can't wait to see all of the artworks and to perform some of these songs for the very first time."
Conrad Sewell has also announced that he will be doing signing events at different locations around Australia to promote the release of LIFE. Fans at each event will also have the opportunity to see Sewell perform live and to meet him by purchasing or pre-ordering a copy of his album on the day.

The past four years have been an emotional and professional rollercoaster for Sewell seeing him hit many career milestones, including landing his first ARIA Award for Song of The Year with his breakout ARIA number 1 hit 'Start Again', and amassing nearly 1 billion streams as the vocalist on Kygo's RIAA platinum hit, 'Firestone.' He has toured with Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5 and Kygo, performing on some of the biggest stages around the globe including Maddison Square Garden and Coachella; joining forces with the late Avicii on 'Taste That Feeling' and bringing 'Sex, Love & Water' to life for Armin van Buuren.
The many successes have come at a price professionally and personally with Sewell last year revealing that he has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, something that caused his solo career to come to a standstill.
In 2018, a freshly focused Sewell signed a new record deal with Sony Music Entertainment Australia and released his hit single, 'Healing Hands'. The song became one of the biggest Australian singles of last year – scoring Sewell his second ARIA Nomination, amassing over 21 million streams and peaking at number one on the Australian iTunes Singles Chart and 7 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
2019 is shaping up to be his biggest year to date with Conrad set to finally release his first studio album, LIFE. Written and recorded over the last four years in Los Angeles, Sewell collaborated with GRAMMY Nominated music industry heavy weights including Jamie Hartman (Calvin Harris, James Bay, Kygo, Rag'N'Bone Man), Busbee (P!nk, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson) and Stuart Crichton (Elton John, Kesha, Kygo) to craft his debut album, LIFE.
Sewell will hit the road this May and June taking his LIFE tour around the country for his biggest Australian headline tour to date. The shows will see Sewell play a combination of his well-loved hits along with new songs from his upcoming album.
