Indie-folk rocker Xavier Rudd is coming to Canberra.

Xavier will release his ninth studio album Storm Boy in May, and to celebrate he’s hitting the road and the capital on Thursday 2 August at UC Refectory.

It’s been six years since Rudd’s last solo release, the ARIA #2 and Gold Certified Spirit Bird, and a lot of things have happened in that time. The new album Storm Boy tracks the journey along the way.

Environmental work, veganism, spiritualism, surfing and exploring; everything Rudd does, he pours into song. The result is a personal sound that strikes a universal note.

For Xavier, writing music and living his life are one and the same.

“I’m literally just singing about the things that are going on around me,” he says of his sublime and soaring indie-folk.
