We’re excited to be working with William Crighton for the first time!

William Crighton is an acclaimed Australian rock roots artist and storyteller. In 2022 Crighton released his third album Water and Dust, toured to sold out audiences in his home country Australia and performed a three month tour in the UK and Euro which included major festivals as well as opening for Canadian bluegrass sensation The Dead South, rock legends Midnight Oil on their final ever tour and folk hero Beans on Toast.

Crighton returns to the Northern hemisphere in 2023 for a run of special shows.

‘Like Tom Waits and Nick Cave, William Crighton is an original. But, apart from that, he’s like no one else‘ – Stack Magazine

Tour support comes from New Zealand’s Proteins of Magic. Living between Tamaki Makaurau Auckland and Nashville, Tennessee, Kelly Sherrod is a multi-faceted artist working across both audio and visual formats. She writes, produces and performs her music, creates visual worlds from claymation to digital art. Through her work she blurs the boundaries between innovative alt-pop and contemporary art music, bringing into existence a world that is uniquely her own.

‘I consider her in that lineage of female musicians with a completely unique voice and approach, in the tradition of Nina Simone, Nico, Patti Smith, Björk, etc. She is the real deal’ – Shayne Carter
