"HR King in New Aussie Film"

The next Aussie film to be released from Sydney's film base has gone one step further in supporting local artists. It's said that the film, "Cedar Boys", about Sydney's culture clash, will help to give a supporting sound avenue for actors as well as singers, even if one of it's actors, sings. Australian born actor, singer and songwriter, HR King, has featured two of his songs in the film, with a possibility of having them on the soundtrack as well. This will be his debut acting role in a feature film. He has received a win and nominations for his music at numerous international music festivals including, The Great American Song Contest, The Music Oz Awards, and the LA Music Awards. Some of his music can be heard on Myspace at www.mypace.com/hrkingaustralia.

"Cedar Boys" tells a story around the problems that come with multi-cultural integration into a westernized society. The characters find themselves taking risky measures in order to fit in and live the lifestyle of their dreams.

The film is said to be released in early 2009. It stars actors Rachael Taylor (Transformers), Martin Henderson (The Ring), Les Chantery, Jake Wall, Daniel Amalm (Underbelly), Hani Malik (aka HR King) and many others. www.cedarboysthemovie.com. - Luke Manning

Bio

“One of the most successful Australian pop vocalists still unsigned by a Major Label” – The Inner West Courier

HR King is one of the most exciting new voices in Australian pop music – and one of the few pop artists in the country to achieve notoriety without Major label backing. After spending a number of years studying music and acting in New York, King returned to his hometown of Sydney and quickly achieved huge success with his debut single ‘Glamour Baby’. A powerful voice, infectious song writing and crisp production have made him a hit across the traditionally impregnable commercial radio networks.

In 2009 out of thousands of competing artists HR King was selected by Jamie Chaux, the program director of RADAR RADIO (Austereo’s Digital Radio Station) as the first unsigned artist to be pushed on Commercial Radio and given a high rotation schedule for six weeks. The gambit paid off, his track was the second most added song on the Australian Radio Network (outpacing well established international artists including Madonna) and slammed the Australian charts – achieving #1 on the AIR charts and #12 in the Hot 30 countdown (the first unsigned artist to accomplish such a feat). The song proved such a hit it was awarded as one of Radar Radio’s top 10 songs of 2009.

The hype doesn’t stop with Radar Radio though; King has been recognised through a score of placements in the Music OZ Awards, The International IE Music Awards, The Billboard World Song Contest, The UK Song Writing Contest, The LA Music Awards and The Great American Song Contest.

His debut album ‘Fearless’ is just around the corner, the title track and hit single-potential Fearless is backed up by one of the most captivating and exciting Video Clips of the year - and he’ll be taking the release across the country, complete with an electric live show and full band.
