It'll be a pretty special time when our brother William Crighton hits the stage for a New Year performance to end the year.
Bringing along a star studded band full of friends and family, it'll be an extended set full of songs from his previous two records, his new record and a bunch of party tunes to bring it home in parting fashion.
After two incredible new singles, Your Country and This Is Magic, the captivating international performer is a valuable asset and contributor to the local music community.
An accomplished performer, Crighton has made increasing waves on an international level over the last few years, performing at many of the worlds greatest festivals, such as Glastonbury, Cambridge, Bluesfest and Gum Ball!
Recently Sydney Morning Herald noting the “cinematic level of immersion” and “engrossing, ambitious work” in their 4.5 star review of his latest COVID Safe sold out Sydney gig.
Since the release of his 2016 critically acclaimed self-titled debut, William Crighton has established himself as one of Australia’s foremost contemporary songsmiths and performers. Darkly majestic follow-up Empire(2018)was named Album of the Year by Hoodoo Gurus’ Dave Faulkner in the Saturday Paper, while Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst has sung the praises of Crighton’s deeply resonant, ineffably Australian vocal delivery; a nod to his roots in the NSW Riverina, Wiradjuri Country.
“William Crighton’s new tune defies physics. It manages to walk a tightrope between relaying a powerful and serious message while also using disarming nostalgia and good humour, all the while being as catchy as hell. I’m not sure how he does it….it’s Magic”- Henry Wagons, Double J.
