Before Fame

His covers of "Budapest," "Bette Davis Eyes," "Crying," and "Stolen Dance" all rose to Top 40 positions on Australian music charts.

Family Life

Born Dean Pritchard to country musicians Angie and Chris Pritchard, he grew up in New South Wales and Queensland, Australia. In late 2014, he began dating fellow Australian vocalist Bonnie Anderson but the couple broke up only a few months later.
