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

Standing at two metres tall with a long dark beard and piercing blue eyes, William Crighton combines traditional music with unexpected experimentation and is a sight and sound to behold. He was born in Dubbo, NSW Australia. (Wiradjuri Nation) 18th May 1985 and grew up in rural NSW in an area known as the ‘Riverina’.

His songs explore a myriad of themes, and his performances have been described as original. Crighton performs solo and as a band with his wife Julieanne, his brother Luke, Matt Sherrod and Reuben Alexander. Crighton has toured with the likes of Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real, The Beach Boys, CW Stoneking, Dan Sultan, Gawurra, Vikki Thorn, Beans on Toast, Terra Lightfoot and Claire Anne Taylor.

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