As an exponentially rising artist on a global scale, Genesis Owusu has defied genre and style to keep the limelight burning following the release of his debut album, Smiling With No Teeth in March 2021. Owusu celebrated its release with a sold-out 22 date tour in 2021 alongside his Goon Club, before another sold-out national theatre tour with The Black Dog Band (his recording band) in 2022 – now immortalised via triple j’s Live At The Wireless. Next, Owusu jetted to the United States for his first ever international tour, performing 16 shows with his Goons. Owusu also made his U.S. late night television debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. His most recent 13-date European tour featured sold-out stops in London, Dublin, Amsterdam and Berlin’s Berghain, as well as a performance at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.
Owusu’s profound artistic revolution and soul-bearing diversity has seen his debut album, Smiling With No Teeth ushered in as one of the country’s greatest new albums, with track, “Gold Chains” included in President Obama’s Favourite Music of 2021. Most recently, Owusu shared his returning new single, “GTFO” to widespread applause from tastemakers internationally, and additions from triple j and community radio.
