Australian singer/songwriter William Crighton will be performing at Mona a place he describes as ‘cool’, in Hobart on Saturday 21 July, as part of his national tour, through July and August, showcasing his new album ‘Empire’.
As always his aim in live concerts is to capture the moment, while revisiting songs from his previous album and live songs. William will be accompanied by his wife Julianne and Josh Owens from Dan Sultan’s band (playing the bass) and his Nashville producer Mark Sherrod playing drums.
When we talk William tells me he tries to visit Tasmania regularly and last visited with Dan Sultan.
The writing process for William means firstly, as he describes it ‘getting down the general bones of the song’ then building on this through editing,
He believes as a musician he is a conduit for something else, perhaps what we collectively call the muse. William does not shy from experimentation and on Empire experimented with different soundscapes as he explores his interest of the human psyche and human spirit.
