Keiynan Lonsdale has today released his thirst-quenching single and sensual music video clip for his sultry new track, “Rhythm & Music” to the Australian market.
The multi-talented Australian actor, singer-song writer and dancer has quickly made a name for himself as a multi-hyphenate talent, starring in major motion pictures, television series and now independently releasing his own original music.
From “Dance Academy” to Hollywood fame, the accomplished actor was the 2020 recipient of GQ Magazine’s “Actor of the Year” Award and has most recently been seen oozing coastal cool in the sun-drenched drama, “Eden”.
Lonsdale is no stranger to the screen, he has been confirmed as a lead actor in the LGBTQ Rom-Com “My Fake Boyfriend” from Lionsgate & Buzzfeed, featured in the #1 Netflix feature film “Work It”, had a starring role in Twentieth Century Fox’s film “Love, Simon,” which garnered $66 million at the world-wide box office making it one of the top 10 highest grossing teen romance movies of all time and is one of the first openly queer actors to play the iconic Wally West superhero in the hit CW series “The Flash”.
Aside from his work in film and television, Lonsdale is extremely passionate about creating music, and is constantly writing and recording new records. His independently released
album “Rainbow Boy” earned him a nomination for ‘Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist’ at the 2021 GLAAD Music Awards and reached over 5 million streams in just a few months. And his recent performances for Billboard & Stonewall has cemented his passion and talent as a triple threat performer.
The Aussie-raised, LA-cultured pop star shows his stripes as a highly trained dancer, actor and musician in this raw and sensually-charged new video clip “Rhythm & Music”, championing his identity with a touch of 80’s nostalgia.
‘I think Rhythm & Music really shows me at my most stripped back and highlights my passion and confidence. It is representative of my journey to being unapologetically who I am today. The right energies really came together in this video clip, I hope it strikes a chord with people.” – Keiynan Lonsdale
“Rhythm & Music” is the first release in a string of productions through which Lonsdale intends to share with his Australian fanbase, who have grown up with him from the time he was the face of MTV Australia and New Zealand until 2014 and his breaking role as Ollie Lloyd in the hit television series, Dance Academy.
