Country Soul Rock 'n' Roll

There’s just enough time left in the year for Dan Sultan to do one last lap of the country. Born in Williamstown, Sultan was raised in the city and the Northern Territory town of Yuendumu. Aided by a John Butler Seed Fund, the songman released his debut album, Homemade Biscuits, in 2006. These days he is a multi-ARIA winner.
He has already had a decent year, with a beefy tour earlier in the piece on the back of his Dirty Ground EP. His final fling of 2015 welcomes a new live concert album, a release recorded at the National Theatre appropriately titled Live from the National Theatre. Fans will be able to purchase the album at his upcoming shows, while it will also be made available from November 13.
The album and tour is in collaboration with OpenLIVE, a “high resolution music platform, offering releases from both established and emerging artists at the highest available sonic quality” committed to “delivering artists’ work intact and without lossy compression – just the way it was originally intended”. From the street: “Capturing the raw power and emotion of Dan Sultan live, the album is unlike anything else he has released before and features tracks from across his recording career along with his unique and entertaining commentary.” Theatre Royal, Castlemaine – November 13.
