Melbourne based singer songwriter Delsinki Records (aka Craig Johnston) is pleased to launch the second single from his debut EP on Sunday, October 6 at Toff In Town from 7pm.
He will be joined in a rare Melbourne appearance by Sydney troubadour Karl Broadie, who is launching his long awaited new album and by pirate shred specialist Citrus Jam.
Burnt Out by the Light was written in memory of Johnston’s former band mate and harmonica player Sonny Lewis who passed late last year and you can view the companion animated video clip here: http://youtu.be/fs4fPT1aC5A.
Delsinki Records is the first solo ep Johnston has released and earlier this year he took it on the road, playing Hobart, Sydney and Melbourne, also appearing at the Adventure Bay Blues & Roots Festival and the inaugural Leaps & Bounds Music Festival.
The four song ep also contains three other tracks – In Over My Head, Sanchez and What You Dream Is Not Your Fault, Each track has a corresponding film clip, which will be shown at the Toff as part of the multimedia presentation to launch Burnt Out By The Light.
Prior to Delsinki Records, Johnston was the founding member of a band called Gretchen Lewis (2002), still a going concern whose high-octane sound continues to captivate Melbourne audiences.
Last year he performed at the Sydney Opera House, The Perth Concert Hall and the Wool Shed (Gnaraloo) as part of the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s The Reef – a creative collaboration between Richard Tognetti, Mick Sowry & Jon Frank. This trip was the inspiration for some of the material on this EP.
Craig also sang along side Brian Ritchie from (The Violent Femmes) as a part of the 2013 The Reef Australian/Hong Kong Tour, which started in Brisbane and finished up in Sydney at the Opera House before finishing with a flourish in Hong Kong.
Tix $10 on the door at Toff In Town, Second Floor, Curtin House, 252 Swanston St, Melbourne on Sunday, October 6 from 7pm.
