Benny Walker Announces Regional Tour

Awarded the Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award for Best New Talent in 2012, singer-songwriter Benny Walker has supported artists including Archie Roach, Blue King Brown, Tim Rogers and Vika & Linda Bull.

His new single is ‘Oh No You Don’t’, written as an “F You” to his battle with mental illness – “that feeling that you’ve learnt to be one step ahead of anxiety, knowing the familiar warning signs and using your own experience to deal with it”, he says.

The track was written in Walker’s Moama home and recorded with Jan Skubiszewski (The Cat Empire, John Butler Trio).

The Bridge Hotel, Castlemaine – July 16; Old Church on the Hill, Bendigo – July 23; and Shamrock Hotel, Echuca – July 24.
