Biography

From his early roots as a social media fixture based in Australia, award-winning singer and actor Troye Sivan blossomed into an international star and LGBTQ icon with his stylish electronic dance-pop and fearless image. His debut album, 2015's Blue Neighbourhood, introduced him to the pop mainstream, landing in the Billboard Top Ten with the singles "Wild" and "Youth." His follow-up, 2018's Bloom, featured his fourth Australian platinum hit, "My My My!" Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1995, Sivan moved to Perth, Australia with his family when he was two years old. Home-schooled, Sivan began singing and acting at a young age, but his biggest break came when he appeared as a young Wolverine in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A year later, he appeared in the South African film Spud. Starting in 2007, Sivan began making videos of himself singing, and uploaded them to various social media sites, eventually garnering over two million subscribers. Concurrent with his videos, Sivan also released two independently produced EPs: 2007's Dare to Dream and 2012's June Haverly. In 2013, he signed a recording contract with EMI Australia, and one year later released his third EP, TRXYE. The album hit the Top Ten in Canada, New Zealand, and the U.S. In 2015, Sivan returned with his fourth EP, WILD, which he described as an "opening installment" of the music he planned to release in the subsequent months. WILD included a pair of feature appearances by New Zealand's Broods and Australian rapper Tkay Maidza, and a trilogy of videos accompanied the album. His debut album, Blue Neighbourhood, was released in late 2015. In addition to the guests who appeared on his WILD EP, his full-length was also graced by Betty Who, Australian rapper Allday, and Blue Neighbourhood producer Alex Hope. The album peaked in the Top Ten in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States and was re-released as a deluxe edition that featured Alessia Cara on the single "Wild." In 2016, Blue Neighbourhood (The Remixes) was issued. The collection featured reimaginings by producers like Filous, Shift K3Y, and RAC, as well as acoustic and live versions of "Youth," "Wild," and "Happy Little Pill." After touring behind his debut, he returned to the studio to record a follow-up. In early 2018, he issued the single "My My My!," which soon went platinum in Australia and entered the U.S. Top 100. Additional singles "Bloom" and the Ariana Grande-assisted "Dance to This" followed. These tracks were included on his sophomore album, Bloom, which arrived that summer. A bold, liberated statement, Bloom also featured songwriting by Leland and Allie X, as well as production by Ariel Rechtshaid and Oscar Holter. ~ Matt Collar
