Blacc launched his career as a solo artist in 2003, releasing two EPs, and signing to Stone's Throw Records in 2006.

In 2010, Blacc released "Good Things" on Stones Throw Records. A commercial success, Good Things was certified gold in the UK, France, Germany and Australia, among other countries, and ultimately hit double platinum sales.

Blacc's most recent success includes co-writing the hit song "Wake Me Up" with Swedish DJ Avicii. With Blacc on vocals, the song reached #1 in 103 countries and became the fastest selling single in the UK, selling 267,000 copies in its first week.

He also collaborated with Avicii on a track called "Liar Liar" that also featured Blondfire.

Blacc's recent hit "The Man" is currently number 12 on the New Zealand Top 40.
