PLAT­INUM PEFORMER

Per­fec­tion­ist con­tin­ues to evolve ca­reer

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FRONT PAGE -

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL pop su­per­star Iyaz has spent the past few years tour­ing the globe and this week will head to Rooty Hill RSL for the first time.

With more than twomil­lion Face­book likes, count­less top 40 hits and a six-times plat­inum sin­gle, Iyaz’s show is one you do not want to miss.

Iyaz has come along way since he was dis­cov­ered on MyS­pace by pop­u­lar artist Sean Kingston.

The Vir­gin Is­lands singer said he didn’t ex­pect the suc­cess that has come his way.

“I did not even plan to be­come big. I was just mak­ing mu­sic for peo­ple at home for fun,” Iyaz said.

Iyaz will bring his sig­na­ture pop/reg­gae sound to the pop­u­lar western Sydney venue, en­sur­ing you will be singing and danc­ing along all night.

Fans are in for a treat with the singer to play all his hit sin­gles in­clud­ing Re­play,

Solo, So Big and Pretty Girls.

The tal­ented per­former said he had spent the past year re­de­vel­op­ing his sound and was ea­ger for Aus­tralian au­di­ences to hear it.

“Some­times you get locked into a cer­tain sound and im­age, and ev­ery­one around you is telling you how you should sound, what you should write about, how you should look and I re­ally never got to let my fans know who the real Iyaz is,” he said.

“That’s why I took con­trol of my ca­reer and hooked up with some long-time friends and busi­ness as­so­ciates to help me out.

“I’m a to­tal per­fec­tion­ist. Each note needs to sound just right.”

Iyaz will per­form at Rooty Hill RSL as part of his Aus­tralian tour.
