It will have been a year since David Bridie’s show headlined the Castlemaine State Festival and he is very much looking forward to performing “The Wisdom Line” on the MEMO stage in 2022 with a full band including Not Drowning, Waving guitarist John Phillips and long-time collaborator Phil Wales.
David Bridie is one of Australia’s most prolific and respected songwriters. He has produced six studio albums with Not Drowning, Waving and seven more with beloved, recently retired group My Friend the Chocolate Cake, as well as innumerable film and television soundtracks. A great teller of Australian stories, David’s immersive, richly textured and sophisticated song-writing shares stories and asks questions with passion, integrity and humility.
Released in March 2019, The Wisdom Line is David’s widely acclaimed sixth solo album release – the album explores themes of Melbourne, asylum, home, the transience of our relationships, and trying to make genuine connections in an interconnected world where everyone is talking on their phones.
