MORE ABOUT THE TOUR AND ARTIST:
Dan Sultan continues to shine as the music industry takes a keen interest in the progress of this man and his band.
With a star that’s been swiftly rising since the release of the second and highly acclaimed album “Get out while you can” the band’s powerhouse performances are reputed to be amongst the most talked about shows in the country.
With a voice that is simultaneously sweet and rough, front man Dan Sultan knows how to turn on a crowd.
The musical partnership and great synergy between Scott Wilson and Dan Sultan is as visible on stage as it is on this breakthrough album. From haunting acoustic ballads to big band soul rock guaranteed to make you move, Dan Sultan and his knock out 7-piece band will deliver their dynamic live set to audiences around Australia.
Get out while you can is an electrifying romp through rockabilly, blues, soul, country and swing and on the back of its release last November, was Triple J’s album of the week, shooting to Number 1 on the Independent Australian album charts. It remains one of the highest selling independent releases in the country today.
After wooing audiences at the recent BluesFest, Dan Sultan kicks of the national tour in Byron Bay on May 14, taking in regional centres around the country and culminating at a performance in his hometown Melbourne at the Forum Theatre on June 18.
With striking guest appearances around Australia at festivals, on film (Bran Nue Dae), TV (Spicks and Specks; Rockwiz) and a ground breaking performance at the ‘Before Too Long’ Paul Kelly Tribute concert, Dan Sultan is emerging as a stand-out showman amongst Australia’s music heavies – the band to watch.
“Some of the biggest names in Australian music performed at the Paul Kelly Tribute... but after two shows at the Forum Theatre, the name on everyone’s lips was Dan Sultan” Patrick Donovan, The Age.
Indigenous music legend, Kev Carmody described Dan Sultan as exactly how he would have performed in the 60’s ... and Dan’s powerful collaborations with Kev Carmody and Black Arm Band, are testament to his commitment to his people and the band’s dedication to quality music and performance.
Be sure to catch the rising star that is Dan Sultan touring in May and June for Triple J.
“Honest raw and real, Sultan and his band have come up with something special” Cameron Adams, Herald Sun
