Starley announced to support Carly Rae Jepsen in NZ

With less than two weeks until Carly Rae Jepsen graces the stages of Australia and New Zealand for the first time, TEG Dainty has today announced Australian singer, Starley, as the support artist for Carly Rae Jepsen’s Australian shows before finishing in New Zealand on Wednesday, December 4 at the iconic Auckland Town Hall.

Emerging in 2016, Starley shot up to fame with her hit single "Call On Me" (Ryan Riback Remix), a track that resonated with millions of fans around the globe. Reaching 1 billion streams across music platforms, rising star, Starley, has gone on to support some of the industry's powerhouses including Katy Perry, Cher, and Clean Bandit and has performed at 2018’s Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

With a powerful message behind each song, Starley has continued to write from the heart and has released a string of rich melodic singles including “Love Is Love” - a track championing acceptance and equality, “Touch Me”, “Signs”, “Been Meaning To Tell You”, and a collaboration with Showtek, MOTi and Wyclef Jean on the reggaeton inspired “Down Easy”. Her latest single “Love + Strangers” (a record produced by Swedish duo NOTD and mixed by Tom Norris, famous for his work on Zedd “The Middle” & Katy Perry's “'Never Really Over”), is an upbeat electro-pop summer vibe groove, a sound for which she’s become known and adored. With 2020 quickly on the horizon, “Love + Strangers” is the first taste of what’s more to come from the talented singer.

Born and raised in Sydney, Starley will be returning to Australasia, where she will join pop songstress, Carly, on some of our most iconic stages on The Dedicated Tour.
