Quest winner 2018, Lachy John, is a folk and roots singer-songwriter from the Pilbara. After winning the Songcraft category for 16-18 year-olds, Lachy has been riding a wave of music opportunities, including sets at Nanga, WAMFest, North West Fest and Nannup, as well as supporting artists such as Dan Sultan and The Quest’s own Helen Townsend.
Now based in Freo with a band to back him, Lachy John is kicking goals; packing out his band launch in March, playing a five week residency at Mojos Bar and performing at WAMFest and Fairbridge 2021.
Lachy is so stoked to be patron of the Fairbridge Quest and says he’s looking forward to help nurture and encourage aspiring young songwriters.
“I means so much to be able to give back to the program because it did so much for me in getting the ball rolling on my career.”
