About

CHISEKO is a multi hyphenate song writer, graphic artist and record producer with a sound deeply rooted in dance and hip hop culture. Originally from Zimbabwe, he spent his childhood in between the UK and Switzerland where his family resided, attending 9 schools in 3 countries. The artist attended art school from a young age and has been refining his craft since the tender age of 13.

In 2017, CHISEKO released his debut single, “Juice” which has amassed over 8,000,000 streams to date. The track was a runner up for WAM’s Hip Hop song of the year, and was featured on apple music's “Abstract Radio” hosted by legendary New York rapper Q-Tip. CHISEKO’s resume includes supporting FKJ, Winston Surfshirt, Yung Gravy, Seth Sentry’s NSW tour & Illy’s national tour as well two sold out headline shows in 2022/23 and 6 showcases between BIGSOUND and SXSW.

“Making art was the best way for me to express myself & keep my mind occupied because I kind of felt out of place everywhere I lived, there was always constant adjustment in all elements of my life.”

After a hiatus for a few years, in 2022, CHISEKO came back bigger and better, and had an extremely successful year. He sold out his first ever headline show at Si Paradiso in Perth. Additionally, he partnered with Australian mental health foundation 20Talk to discuss his own personal battles with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. His music was featured in Martin Wilsons’ feature film “Pieces” which explores the challenges of various mental health illnesses.

Since his return to releasing music in 2022 the artist has been given amazing support across radio and streaming platforms including Triple J, where he received song of the day for “Care” and was recently given an artist spotlight for a week on the main page. Additionally, he was the cover artist twice on Spotify’s “The Hybrid” playlist.

Other wins also include his music video “Care” being played on ABC’s Rage, “Confidence” becoming the official song for Altos Tequila’s global television ads and a run of shows around Australia performing at the popular event, second life markets.

His debut EP “Blank Page” is set for release in early 2024.
