It's always fun to see a young artist before they hit it big. It's a pretty safe bet that Australian singer Conrad Sewell is a star on the rise.

When we met Conrad at the Spotify House at SXSW 2015, he had just finished his set in front of hundreds of screaming fans under the sun in Austin, Texas.

People were dancing; there was certainly a party atmosphere. But, Conrad was nice enough to take a short walk with us to a quiet corner where he sang an acoustic version of his song "Hold Me Up."
