The multi-talented iconic Auzzie musician Xavier Rudd’s seventh and latest album has produced his biggest selling single to date the beautifully haunting ‘Follow The Sun’. Rudd is a folkie singer, song-writer and multi-instrumentalist who has re-introduced the didgeridoo back into the mainstream supporting and spreading worldwide Australia’s often marginalised native history and sound. This song plays like a dream with his penchant for playing instruments simultaneously and I am a major fan since first hearing him play out on the office radio. I have since discovered two preceding albums including ‘Food in the Belly’ and ‘The Moth’ on my i-pod making for some easy listening on the train journey home from work.
Xavier’s ‘Spirit Bird’ tour starts on the 22nd of August in Australia. Tickets go on sale on the 21st of June. One to watch !
