William Crighton - Happiness

William Crighton - Happiness
Empire sees William Crighton expand his study of the human psyche. Produced by established producer and collaborator Matt Sherrod and recorded in a series of evocative settings, Empire expands Crighton's powerful sound into sprawling new planes and finds the singer-songwriter bringing a cinematographer's eye for detail to bear on his unique and immersive lyrical style."We're all conditioned one way or another and for me, at least 50% of the time, it feels impossible to know where that begins and ends. Songs feel like freedom"
Since the release of his debut, has attracted the attention of many taste-making publications including Rolling Stone Australia. In January 2017, the first of Crighton's much-lauded performances at the Tamworth Regional Gallery was ranked by late, great rock critic Iain Shedden among his "all-time Top 10" live shows.

Also in 2017, Crighton released 7-inch vinyl 'Hope Recovery', accompanied Dan Sultan and CW Stoneking on their respective national tours, and performed to thronging crowds at WOMADelaide and Woodford Folk Festival. He showcased at Canadian Music Week, New York City's Mondo Music Conference and the Folk Alliance International in Kansas City. Empire is out on ABC/Universal Music on May 4th 2018.
