Si Jay Gould

Wondercore Island

Si Jay Gould began managing Hiatus Kaiyote in 2011 soon after booking their first show.

After the independent release of their debut album Tawk Tomahawk, word of mouth caught on like wildfire and within months they were championed by a host of RnB and Hip-hop’s most respected icons. This led to a Grammy Nomination for Best RnB Performance, making them the first Australian artist ever to be recognised in that category.

Exceeding expectations with critically acclaimed Choose Your Weapon, they earnt their second Grammy nomination and cemented their uncompromising artistic vision to transcend genre and the trappings and clichés of the industry. These choices have led to the band’s continual growth in a lane of their own design, garnering the respect and actively inspiring today’s most celebrated musicians. In 2017 their album has been sampled and used on two of Hip-hop’s biggest releases, Drakes More Life, and Kendrick Lamar’s Damn.
