August 18 – Xavier Rudd: The Storm Boy
Xavier Rudd is one of Australia’s most iconic voices. A multi-instrumentalist, surfer & activist, Xavier’s ability to connect with people is astounding. Led by the radiating single Walk Away, Storm Boy is both classic Xavier and something a little new. Produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Tom Speight) and mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, Bowie, U2) it is a record that reflects the power of Xavier’s songwriting – his timeless, philosophical lyrics and his masterful sculpting of melody.
