Vander has performed with his band in many legendary Sydney venues, from The Annandale Hotel to The Basement to Campbelltown Sports Stadium, as well as festivals including The Cruelty Free Festival. He also had the privilege of recently supporting legendary 80’s band, Pseudo Echo on all three Sydney legs of their current ‘Ultraviolet’ Tour.
Since the start of last year, the home demo of 'Back To The Sun’ has garnered interest from companies and individuals in the industry, including two US publishing companies, Crucial Music and North Star Media, and record producer and former Senior Vice President of A&R for Warner Music, Jeff Blue.
Vander travelled to Los Angeles last year to work with Blue on three tracks, including 'Back To The Sun’ as well as new songs ‘Shine’ and ‘Take You Home’. Vander will be independently releasing his debut EP, ‘Venus’ which include these three tracks later in October.
Vander will be releasing 'Back To The Sun' and ‘Shine’ as the EP's two singles. With the help of Matt O'Connor, former Senior Vice President of A&R for Warner Music Australia, the singles will be featured on Triple J, and thousands of blogs around the world.
Vander is also active both in the real-world and online. He has garnered fans from across the world through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram within the course of a year, and has hundreds of email subscribers on his mailing list.
