A year on from the release of his first solo EP Avontales, has generated a following that has seen him take the stage at Northern Bass and Laneway Festival, as well as headline slots across the country and shows alongside his friend and collaborator Noah Slee in Europe. Most recently MELODOWNZ appeared on SWIDT’s new cut ‘Off The Top’.
Bobby says of the collaboration: " It was a beautiful musical bridge between genres and styles. Melodownz’s rap just made the song sound smooth and it connected so well with Jennifer’s vocals."
