His stage name was derived from a family nickname, which in turn was inspired by the Sydney radio announcer Gary O'Callaghan's on-air character "Sammy Sparrow".
Sparro left Los Angeles and returned to Sydney, where he lived with his grandparents and worked for a public relations company, before travelling to the UK, immersing himself in the music scene in London.
On 17 September 2013, Sparro collaborated with The Bloody Beetroots on a track titled "Glow in the Dark" stating that "It's one of my favorite songs I've written recently." On 1 October 2013, Sparro's new EP, Quantum Physical, was released, in which the lead single being "Hang on To Your Love" featuring Durand Bernarr Hang on To Your Love, Fascism, and Infinite were included from Mechanical.

Addressing rumours of a mostly instrumental album, he clarified that, unlike "Pink Cloud", his second album would be full of tracks featuring his vocals.
A new video premiered, featuring a new track from the album.
Two subsequent singles, "21st Century Life" and "Pocket", were considerably less successful on the charts.
During promotion of "Black and Gold", Sparro covered "American Boy" by Estelle on Jo Whiley's Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1.
In September 2008, Sparro was nominated for five ARIA Music Awards.
