The City of Greater Geraldton has announced singer-songwriter Reece Mastin as the headline act for the Red FM’s Open Air Arena Concert next week.

Part of Festivals on the Foreshore, Mastin will perform on the Geraldton Multipurpose Centre Stage on Sunday, October 9, from 5pm-8pm.

Mastin shot to fame after he was announced winner of The X Factor Australia in 2011.

After signing with Sony Music Australia, the singer-songwriter’s debut single Good Night, released in 2011, hit number one in Australia and became Sony’s fastest selling digital single.

Mastin went on to release several albums and more hit singles, with hits Good Night and Shout It Out earning him two ARIA No. 1 Chart awards.

Recently the singer’s music has taken on a new direction, having parted ways with Sony and signed with independent label Social Family Records last year.

The singer is also managed by Mahalia Barnes, daughter of renowned singer and Cold Chisel front man Jimmy Barnes.

He released his third studio album Change Colors under her management in October 2015, which debuted at number 12.

Mastin has even admitted in previous interviews to having laid down tracks at Jimmy Barnes’ home studio last year.
