Against The Wheel
Greg Arnold is the award winning singer-songwriter behind Australian folk-rock institution Things of Stone and Wood.
He wrote the top ten hit "Happy Birthday Helen", the top four radio played song "Wildflowers" and the two top ten albums "The Yearning" and "Junk Theatre". The band won an ARIA and Greg was named Australian Songwriter of the Year by APRA in 1993. He is also a producer, academic and published author.
Across a thirty year recording career he has established a catalogue of melodic, harmonic and lyrically meaningful "horse power" pop.
This November sees him return to Australia to launch his solo release "Against the Wheel" - an acoustic album recorded in his new home Geneva, Switzerland
With one song in French, a rhythm section of knee slapping and two songs with the Red Cross and Red Crescent choir he is clearly enjoying his time as a bit of a Swissie.
Also, in addition to performing the new record, as part of these intimate and special shows Greg will of course revisit some TOSAW classics.
Always happy to accommodate an obscure back catalogue request, he also promises to share at least one moderately amusing anecdote from an occasionally bizarre life in folk-rock.
