BIO

Australian Gothic masterwork “Riverina Kid”

The singer-songwriter, now based in the Hunter Valley, is known for his powerful and mesmerising live performances. Respected Australian music journalist Iain Shedden, of The Australian, recently described Crighton’s Tamworth Regional Art Gallery appearance in glowing terms: “Once in a lifetime a gig surpasses all expectations, slapping you in the face with its grace, majestic singing, the quality of the material, and, in this instance, the acoustic ambience of the venue… [it] demonstrated music's power to stir the heart and soul. In my all-time Top 10 that one.”

Latest News

Having recently finished a successful tour with Canadian songstress Terra Lightfoot, William Crighton is heading to Woodford Folk Festival in December before traveling on to Tamworth Country Music Festival for a special pairing with Gawurra.

Crighton and Gawurra will provide an alternate option to mainstream country concerts providing important indigenous recognition at this time. Both unique artists will present remarkable music, cultural diversity and social story telling.

William will return to the US to showcase at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City in February before embarking on a Canadian tour with Terra Lightfoot in late February and March.

William has just been announced to play Bluesfest in Byron Bay at the end of March 2018.

“It would not be unfair to say Crighton’s growing legion of followers come along for a near-religious experience…To say he’s capable of taking an audience to another level is not an understatement.” – Newcastle Herald

“He skillfully powered through a powerful 5 song set that invoked all sorts of raw emotion & deep thought that left you knowing you heard & saw something special’ Indie Music Review” – Rockwood Music Hall NYC
