Description

    William Crighton is a Singer-songwriter who is known for his powerful and mesmerising live performances and has firmly established himself as "one to watch" in 2018.

    Hailing from country girded by the South West Slopes and Riverina regions of New South Wales, Crighton peopled the tracks of his celebrated self-titled 2016 debut with compelling, ineffably Australian figures of often-tragic resonance.
     
    Crighton identifies powerful analogues of lived experience. It's a gift that finds its truest expression  on his folk-rock second album, Empire.
    Produced by established collaborator and sought-after drummer Matt Sherrod (Crowded House, Beck) in close co-operation with Crighton himself, Empire finds the singer-songwriter bringing a cinematographer's eye for detail to bear on his incomparably immersive lyrical style.
     
    Above all, Empire is a songbook of breathtaking insight. The flame of the human spirit is, in Crighton's hands, shown to be the most powerful force at work in 21st Century Australia: one that produces both soot and shadow, but also guiding light, illuminating both the painful past and the difficult path forward.
