Ziggy’s Story

Ziggy Alberts is an independent singer/songwriter, free-surfer & environmental enthusiast from the East Coast of Australia. 

Picking up a guitar in 2011, Laps Around The Sun – upcoming album – will be Ziggy’s 5th record, following Feels Like Home (2012), Made of Water (2013), Land & Sea (2014) and Four Feet in the Forest EP (2016). Pushing the boundaries and expectations of self-funded independent artists, Ziggy continues to share his music around the world with his dedicated grassroots following. He sings heartfelt stories of personal endeavours and experiences, ocean-side upbringing, environmental issues and life on the road. 

Working closely with his small family team, Ziggy founded his independent label, Commonfolk Records in March 2018. 

Noteworthy Achievements

Headlining at established music venues through 11 European countries on his summer 'Tell Me Europe Tour 2017', Ziggy sold over 5,000 tickets and played festival performances in France, Netherlands and Germany. 

The Heaven Tour saw Ziggy performing at his biggest headline shows to date. With 4 out of 5 shows officially selling out (QPAC Concert Hall, Enmore, Palais and Astor Theatres) Ziggy proved his ability in connecting with his audience despite the growing room sizes. Imagine 2,000 people singing every word to ‘Gone’, then hearing a pin drop moments later. 

The tour was promoted with no marketing budgets, PR agencies or radio support. The team relied solely on Ziggy's organic social media posts and following, which is a small reflection of his dedicated fan base. 

In 2018, Ziggy established himself as a main stage artist at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, playing to a full, swooning crowd of 5,000 people. Ziggy played on the Mojo Stage before household names, Tash Sultana and John Butler Trio.
