AT THE AGE OF THIRTEEN, SOLILOQUY MADE HIS DEBUT PERFORMANCE IN FRONT OF A SOLD OUT VENUE; A GUEST APPEARANCE ON STAGE WITH NEW YORK HIP-HOP LEGEND PHAROAHE MONCH. IN JULY OF 2011, HE RELEASED HIS DEBUT EP “THE UNVEILING”, RECEIVING MUCH ACCLAIM FROM INDUSTRY FIGURES AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC ALIKE. HE SPENT THE FOLLOWING YEAR HONING HIS CRAFT, WORKING ON NEW MATERIAL AND PERFORMING AROUND MELBOURNE. 2012 BROUGHT A REBIRTH FOR SOLILOQUY, AS HE MATURED LYRICALLY AND EXPERIENTIAL. HIS SECOND RELEASE “SEVEN” ILLUSTRATED A MORE FOCUSED AND CONCISE LYRICIST, ONE WITH A DISCERNING EAR FOR STRUCTURE AND MUSICAL EVOLUTION. IN THE SAME YEAR, HE BECAME ONE OF SIX FINALISTS IN TRIPLE J’S UNEARTHED HIGH COMPETITION, RECEIVING REGULAR AIRPLAY FROM THE STATION IN THE YEARS TO COME.
MORE FOCUSED THAN EVER, SOLILOQUY DELIVERED HIS THIRD OFFERING “DOUBLE SIDED”;
A SHORT BUT CONCISE PIECE OF WORK THAT WAS RELEASED EARLY IN 2013. FEATURING GUEST VERSES FROM REMI, DYLAN JOEL AND ELEMONT AND PRODUCTION FROM SENSIBLE J AND DUTCH, MAX DAMAGE, BILLY HOYLE AND SILENTJAY, “DOUBLE SIDED” PROVED SOLILOQUY TO BE A MORE MEASURED LYRICIST, YET ONE WHOM STILL DISPLAYS A KNACK FOR INTELLIGENT AND THOUGHT PROVOKING LYRICS.

“THIS GUY’S GOT FLOW AND RHYMES THAT ARE BETTER THAN MOST MCS DOUBLE HIS AGE.” – DOM ALESSIO (TRIPLE J) “
