London-based, GRAMMY-winning songwriter and electronic musician William Phillips makes yearning, bittersweet dance tracks under the name Tourist. With high-profile remixes for Chvrches, Haim, Christine and the Queens under his belt, the classically trained instrumentalist and producer released his self-titled debut EP (2012), Tonight EP (2013), and Patterns EP (2014) that saw features from vocalists including Lianne La Havas and Will Heard. Picking up a Grammy for his co-writer role on Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’, Tourist released debut album U last year to critical acclaim. With co-signs from the likes of Flume and Porter Robinson, the triple j feature album included BBC Radio 1 playlisted and Hype Machine #1 ‘Run’ alongside lead singles ‘To Have You Back’ and ‘Too Late.’
Known for his captivating sets and with numerous sold-out shows across the United States, Europe and Australia, Tourist has become a live favourite. The producer has performed at festivals including Glastonbury, Pitch, Panorama, Bestival and Coachella, with 2017 marking his second appearance on the famed festival line-up.
