We chatted with one of Australia’s highest selling male artists Guy Sebastian in promotion of his new album Like It Like That.
It’s been almost seven years since Guy was crowned Australia’s very first Australian Idol, and while other winners have faded into obscurity and joined an endless list of one hit wonders (Casey Donovan, Natalie Gauci anyone?), Guy has maintained a loyal fanbase and impressive level of success – 11x platinum over five Top 10 albums (Just As I Am ’03, Beautiful Life ’04, Closer to the Sun ’06, The Memphis Album ’07, Like It Like That ’09), four #1 singles, a string of Top 20 hits, plus a swag of awards and nominations.
In his first interview on JOY 94.9, Guy opens up about his experiences, the fickleness of the industry and the possible reasons for his enjoyed longevity. We discuss the new album Like It Like That and the second single “Art Of Love”, a duet with former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.
