If you’re looking for a sure bet on a pop artist destined for big things in the UK and the USA, Dane Rumble is your man. Signed to the Ministry of Sound label over in Australia he has been nominated for a staggering 6 NZ Music Awards and winner of “Best Male Solo Artist,”
Dane has soared into the new decade with multiple hit singles under his belt, the most recent of which “Takes Me Higher” went straight to #1 on iTunes as well as the New Zealand Music and Video charts. Though thrilled with the reception of his music, Dane is no stranger to the industry, having spent a number of years in the phenomenally successful hip-hop outfit Fast Crew.

In just 12 months, the enigmatic artist who has an ear for a killer melody has written and produced some of the most infectious tunes to reverberate the airwaves in recent years. It is Dane’s instinctive sense of what makes a song a winner that has continued to drive his solo career; as well as the overwhelming response he’s had from those who matter the most – the listeners
