Astley had his hit song 'London' played as part of the Queens Diamond Jubilee in the United Kingdom in 2012.
Jumping back and forth between Australia and the UK since 2011, Astley’s music has been influenced by the vastly different landscapes and experiences offered by these destinations in the UK. With a father from Birmingham and a signed record deal with UK record label Gotham Records, Astley naturally feels a tether between the UK and his home in Tasmania.
Astley has scored some big media attention, with TV appearances on the Marngrook Footy Show (Australia), Late Night with Monica Price (UK) & The Cath Vincent TV Show (NZ), as well as acting roles on TV Ads Oogies Popcorn (USA), & Carlton Draught (Australia).
Astley finished a massive Australian tour in 2018/2019, and is now back in the recording studio releasing new music in 2020
