Following his breakthrough year in 2016, and buoyed by a fantastic debut record and a string of live appearances that defined ferocity of spirit, William Crighton will perform a string of dates along the East Coast of Australia to include two special shows at local favourite venue the Bella Union at Trades Hall in Carlton.
The shows are set to coincide with the release of a hypnotic new 7 inch vinyl release and digital single called Hope Recovery on March 31st 2017, and you can expect something special, with the “Riverina Kid” showing no intention of resting on his laurels in 2017.
Hope Recovery sees Crighton collaborate once again with producer and drummer Matt Sherrod of Crowded House. The release, recorded in Mullumbimby, in the mountains of Laguna, and his own backyard caravan-come-studio at Bellbird is presented as an 8.46 minute piece of music. It flows seamlessly from the epic jam and rumination on religious accountability ‘Talking to God’ into the uplifting and delicate Australiana soundscape of the title track. The bonus is Neil Young’s classic environmental lament ‘After the Gold Rush’.
For the live shows, expect two hours of music and a range of special guests. The show on Friday 5th has already sold out, so book quick for Saturday 6th May or miss out!
