Flume named as ‘Solo artist of the Year’ by GQ Australia

Australian superstar Flume has had an extremely impressive career, and has retained a high level of respect worldwide ever since his first ever solo single was released in 2011. As such an individual artist who sets trends rather than following them, Flume’s success quickly snowballed, and by 2012 he had already released his first ever platinum single. Following the release of his masterful second ‘Skin Companion EP‘ earlier this year, the Australian has just won an esteemed title, GQ Australia‘s ‘Solo Artist of the Year’.

As 2017 draws to a close, Flume continues to go from strength to strength, and this award symbolizes the artistry behind everything he releases – from the albums to the remixes. While Flume wasn’t there in person to collect his award, he had this to say:

“I just wanted to say thank you for the award of Solo Artist of the Year. It means a lot, especially to be surrounded by so many talented people in their own fields. The shoot we did in LA, it was fun. I’m not one for shoots, I usually don’t like them, but the shoot we did for GQ was a lot of fun. I’ve never worn so many suits in my life. I’m really excited to be coming back to Australia. I’m coming back at the end of the year for Falls Festival and Field Day, but until then, thank you!”
