It would be a generalisation to group Queenscliff’s Alister Turrill with other young roots players. His playing style blends a true form of blues with complex song writing seldom seen.
He’s shared the stage with Jeff Lang, Geoff Achison and Lloyd Spiegel on several occasions and has supported the likes of Charlie Parr (US), Tim Rogers, Ash Grunwald, Kim Churchill, Steve Smyth, Tim Freedman and Shane Howard.
After an impressive couple of years since releasing her acclaimed album “The Water” singer, songwriter, poet Sam Buckingham will hit the road solo, in support of her latest single “Real Life”.
“A breath of fresh air” - Music Love
Recorded and filmed live in the stunning Bangalow Uniting Church, Buckingham has been penning songs for her next release and “Real Life” is a sneak peek into the new work. “I’m paying more attention to lyrics than ever before” Buckingham says “These days, I find myself mainly writing songs that speak to my experience of being a woman, just trying to navigate my way through life. ‘Real Life’ is deeply personal, but when I shared a rough demo of it online so many women wrote to me saying that they could relate. That’s what prompted me to release the song properly and go on tour - I want to share my stories because they’re other people’s stories too.”
