Lots of mentions in the media thanks to the release of Water and Dust, the start of my tour to promote the album, and my support gigs for Midnight Oil’s farewell concerts.
Josh Leeson says some good things about my support of Midnight Oil in Newcastle: “…a charismatic performer who traverses rock, folk and country and continues Midnight Oil’s legacy of singing powerfully Australian stories.”
Josh Leeson mentions how Liz Stringer and my band “the heaviest hitters” closed out the weekend in a wrap-up of a fantastic weekend of music and community, and showed he’d definitely been there with his observations on the new Morning Constitutional porch chats.
“…early critical acclaim suggests it may well be regarded as his finest yet.”
#9 A.I.R. Debut
Based on streaming and CD sales (vinyl delayed until March) it’s nice to see the album start its journey on The Australian Independent Record Labels Association chart.
Elizabeth Symington included some kind words for my support performance in her review of Midnight Oil’s show
“…his opening song Priest was spine-tingling good … When he and his band finished performing they had definitely gathered some more supporters.”
Mat Ward includes Water and Dust in his “good protest music” being released these days list – focussing on Your Country.
Always nice to see someone who enjoyed the show updating the list at setlist.fm for posterity.
