William Crighton - Jesus Blues

William Crighton - Jesus Blues
To celebrate his spate of festival appearances, Australian singer-songwriter William Crighton has released a new single 'Jesus Blues' off his highly acclaimed self-titled debut album. It is accompanied by a startling video that places the singer as an omnipotent suburban entity, giving demonic force to the duality of human existence – exerting his will over even the most mundane actions.

Crighton came away with accolades as a buzz artist at BigSound and Australian Music Week this month, impressing a slew of delegates. The shows landed him a spot at Womadelaide in March 2017, an opportunity to play in front of 5,000 fans for a Sydney Kings game and opportunities in the overseas markets.

“Crighton breathes fresh and strikingly vivid life into the umbrous bush of traditional
Australian balladry." -Gareth Hipwell Rolling Stone

He is set to keep up the pace with festival appearances at Mullum and Queenscliff Music festivals in November, before embarking on a set of summer tour dates including a visit to Tamworth Country Music Festival to play a special one-off show with Melody Pool in January. He’ll then join greats like Paul Kelly at the Riverboats Festival in Victoria in February.

About this track...

'Jesus Blues' is about questioning everything you believe in. Whether it is, God or a voted ruler, we’re bending to the will of others every day of our lives. The tale speaks of shaking off the suppression of suburban life to reveal hidden dreams, nightmares of ordinary people.
