It was back in 2004 when Miss Connie and producer/DJ Angus McDonald started making beautiful music together. A series of singles at first then, in 2006, their self-titled, 3 x platinum debut album. Spearheaded by a spectacular salvo of chart topping hits – UFO, Pictures and I Love It – Sneaky Sound System won ARIA Awards for Breakthrough Artist and Best Dance Release, the first of 14 nominations to-date.
In the swirling midst of albums and tours, Connie lent her vocals and lyrics to albums from superstars Jay-Z, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg, and in 2013 she was a guest mentor on Australia’s biggest TV show, The Voice. Later that year, News Limited polled musicians and critics to determine Australia’s greatest all-time singers, Connie came in at no. 18.
And then of course there’s Sneaky Sundays, the beloved club night they have been running for over 15 years in Sydney and, in 2018, its fourth year at the world renowned Mykonos hotspot, Scorpios. The past few years have seen Sneaky releasing music more akin to the sound of these weekly parties like Summertime Madness, All I Need Is You and I Ain’t Over You.
With COVID-19 putting the brakes on Angus and Connie’s extended touring schedule, including their weekly parties at Mrs Sippy Bali, they’re ensconced in their Bondi beachside studio whipping up some magic. Sneaky’s first release for the decade is Tell The World, a collaboration with French legend/DJ/producer Norman Doray.
