It’s no secret that Savage is a star in his home country of New Zealand, with two # 1 records under his belt for 2005’s “Swing” and “Moonshine”, but it was a breakthrough international placement in hit US comedy “Knocked Up” that turned the local hero into an overnight star in America. “Swing” was placed in a pivotal bar scene in the blockbuster movie that let the rest of the world know what Kiwis have been saying for a long time - Savage is a platinum star, a big man with a big voice and even bigger talent.
Fast forward to 2014 and Joel Fletcher’s remix of “Swing” catapulted Savage back into the charts, reaching #2 on the ARIA Singles Chart and selling a massive 4 x platinum in Australia. Savage then teamed up with Australian DJ Timmy Trumpet for “Freaks”, selling 5 x platinum in Australia, reaching #1 on the New Zealand charts, hitting the top 20 across Europe and surpassing a massive 100 million plays on Spotify.
2017 sees Savage’s collaboration with Kronic and Far East Movement, “Push”, taking over screens around the world in the trailer for the latest Fast and Furious movie, “Fast & Furious 8 – The Fate of the Furious”. Another blockbuster moment for Savage.
