Multi-ARIA award-winning Ghanaian-Australian artist, Genesis Owusu has delivered his new single, Get Inspired. The track follows up GTFO, which has landed the musician two nominations at this years ARIA Awards, with Owusu also scoring a nod for Best Australian Live Act presented by Heaps Normal.
Opening with a thumping bass line, Owusu's inimitable vocals burst atop production from Dann Hume and Andrew Klippel as he delivers darting lyricism that packs a punch. Breaking into hypnotic falsetto for the songs bridge, Get Inspired continues to prove Owusu's dynamic musical prowess, hitting the mark once again with another rhythmic cut.
Having just wrapped up his North American tour, which included a set at Austin City Limits, Owusu has returned home to support Tame Impala on their national tour.
Having already taken to the stage in Brisbane and Sydney, the tour will continue on to Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, before the musician travelling the country on the festival circuit, performing at Spilt Milk, Lost Paradise and Falls Festival.
Late last year, Owusu took home four out of his eight nominations at the 2021 ARIA Awards, including Album Of The Year for Smiling With No Teeth, Best Hip Hop Release Presented By Menulog, and Best Independent Release Presented by PPCA. Best Cover Art was also awarded to Kofi Ansah and Bailey Howard for their work on the albums imagery. The musician recently wrapped up his Australian and North American legs of the Smiling With No Teeth Tour, performing to sold out crowds across both continents.
