Hunter Valley-based, singer-songwriter William Crighton has announced that he will be touring the east coast this May/June to celebrate the release of his new single ‘Hope Recovery’ on March 31st, 2017.
After a breakthrough year in 2016 which saw the release of William Crighton’s critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album, Crighton is set to keep the momentum rolling on in 2017, He will be showcasing his talent in Toronto at Canadian Music Week and gigs in Vancouver this April before heading home and kicking off his Hope Recovery Tour on May 5th. These shows will be a musical feast for those that attend, with each intimate evening presenting over two hours of music and a range of special guests.
‘Hope Recovery’ sees Crighton collaborate once again with producer and drummer Matt Sherrod of Crowded House. The release, recorded in various locations, including Mullumbimby, in the mountains of Laguna, and his own backyard studio in the Hunter Valley, is presented as an 8.46-minute piece of music. It flows seamlessly from the epic jam and rumination on religious accountability ‘Talking to God’, into the uplifting and delicate Australiana soundscape of the title track. The bonus is Neil Young’s classic environmental lament ‘After the Gold Rush’.
