Joining triple j for the next two weeks are Alex Lahey and Kwame, as Home & Hosed presenter Declan Byrne hands them the mic to guest host his popular Australian music show.
Lahey and Kwame will dig up the best new Australian music and share their favourite songs, stories and unique insights into the Aussie music scene.
In less than four years, Alex Lahey has gone from uploading music to triple j Unearthed to playing the biggest stages in Australia, gaining a J Award nomination for her debut album ‘I Love You Like A Brother’ and legions of fans along the way.
With a huge passion for and knowledge of the current Australian scene, and now as host on Home & Hosed a month before her second album release is a huge coup, she says she is excited about the new role, “Home & Hosed was the first show on triple j to ever play my music and I’m so pumped to be sitting in the presenters chair this week to play some of my favourite new Australian tunes!”
Kwame’s meteoric rise started with his Endless Conversations EP and its mega hit ‘WOW’ which saw him open up Splendour In The Grass and scoop up the J Award for Unearthed Artist of the Year.
On getting the call up, Kwame says “I’m beyond excited to be hosting Home & Hosed! I cannot wait to share the music I’m loving in Australia as well as connecting with the nation through sonic vibes! We’re about to create a moment!”
Kicking off tonight, Alex Lahey is presenting Home & Hosed from 9pm Mon 8 – Thurs 11 April, followed by Kwame from 9pm Mon 15 – Thurs 18 April.
