Olivia Harrison once said of her late husband, George Harrison, “George had a really curious mind, and when he got into something he wanted to know everything.” Often referred to as the quiet Beatle, George was as much an innovator and philosopher as a musician. His views on life have inspired countless over the years, including Aussie songman Wes Carr. Here Comes the Sun is his tribute. In Carr’s words: “If it wasn’t for George, I wouldn’t have started Transcendental Meditation five years ago, the practice played a large part in my recovery from depression. To me, George was a spiritual leader in his own way, as he was a guiding light for so many … The times certainly were ‘a changing’ and George was at the forefront of a global shift that today still rings true for so many. I believe George’s music has more relevance now than it ever did – for all of these reasons, I knew I had to pay homage to the work of George Harrison through a live show.” In Here Comes the Sun, Carr interprets Harrison’s songbook, taking on such songs as ‘My Sweet Lord’, ‘What is Life’ and ‘Something’.
