Growing up in the isolated Riverina town of Griffith, Country NSW, Konect-A-Dot began injecting his beliefs and experiences into his music at an extremely young age and it wasn’t long before the rest of the country started taking note. Distinctively Australian, distinctively indigenous and distinctively his own, Konect-A-Dot’s music offers a lyrical flow and reality rarely heard amongst today’s generic brand of hip hop; it’s an honesty that has seen him break through stereotypes to set the underground buzzing
Backing up the words is an ever expanding string of awards and accl.. At the age of 18 Konect-A-Dot is named one of the Top Ten best new unsigned talents at the Australian Music OZ awards in not one, but two separate categories, both open ‘Hip Hop’ and ‘Indigenous’. 2006: Konect-A-Dot nominated for ‘Best New Talent’ at Australia’s Indigenous ‘Deadly Awards’. 2006: From amongst over 4000 nominations, Konect-A-Dot is awarded Australia’s best unsigned indigenous artist, taking out the ‘Indigenous’ category at the 2006 Music OZ Awards
Konect-A-Dot has been travelling back and forth between Sydney and Griffith for over four years and establishing an enviable live reputation along the way. He started off performing with the Young, Black & Deadly program and has since gone on to build up a list of supports that includes the likes of Koolism, Kid Confucius and Local Knowledge (now Street Warriors). May 2007 saw him invited to play one of the headline slots at Brisbane’s 2007 Stylin’UP Festival, a slot that resulted in further Triple J airplay and a feature interview with Maya Jupiter on Triple J’s ‘Hip Hop Show. But now, the time has come to turn promise into fruition.
2012 Konect-A-Dot nominated as a finalist in Australian Musicoz Awards and finished in the Top 10 in the Urban Category for unsigned artist
