A music fan from a young age, Lachie was only 13 when he first began his musical journey. Emerging as the winner of The Voice Australia 2022 with the acclaimed single ‘Wasted Time’, Lachie teamed up with prolific producers Andy and Thom Mak in Avoca Beach to write for his next project.
Harnessing his candid, emotive writing style, Lachie and the Mak brothers broke down these walls of vulnerability to craft the anthemic ‘Sad Summer’ which was added nationally to pop radio, as well as the moving ballad ‘Right People Wrong Time’ featuring singer-songwriter Elaskia.
