    John Schumann first came to national recognition as the lead singer and songwriter of the legendary folk-rock band Redgum, who made their mark on the Australian conscience with the enduring Vietnam veterans' anthem 'I Was Only 19'.
    Never one to be short on an educated opinion, John Schumann has spent his life understanding, exploring and supporting Australia and its diverse culture, a passion shared through song on his new album with The Vagabond Crew titled 'Ghosts & Memories'
    With his distinctive voice and renowned lyricism, Schumann has compiled a different kind of album with 'Ghosts & Memories', exploring new topics and approaching the album in a way he hasn't previously done. 'Ghosts & Memories' is a collection of 12 songs that delve into the life of John McDouall Stuart ('Skinny Little Kid', 'Won't Look Down', 'Remember Me'), explores the complexities of being a 'FIFO' worker ('FIFO Road') and climate change ('Nobody's Fault'), visits our Anzac history ('Anzac Biscuits', 'On Every Anzac Day') and discusses the state of the world from the perspective of someone who genuinely cares ('Times Like These', 'The Long Run Remix') and has an interest in life on the land ('Fade Away', 'Awesome Day', 'What Did You Do Today').
