Willam Crighton

Uniquely penetrating storytelling Rolling Stone

Great Southen Nights 
in association with Civic Theatre Newcastle
presents William Crighton

We are delighted to have William Crighton perform a headline show as part of our Great Southern Nights Program.

Raised where the fertile floodplains of the Riverina meet the Snowy Mountains in Wiradjuri Country —William Crighton has quickly established himself as one of Australia’s foremost contemporary songsmiths.

Crighton’s critically-acclaimed debut William Crighton (2016) garnered a nomination at the 2017 AIR Awards, and drew the praise of Rolling Stone, who celebrated Crighton’s “uniquely penetrating storytelling.” Darkly majestic follow-up Empire (2018) was named album of the year by Hoodoo Gurus’ Dave Faulkner in the Saturday Paper, while Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst has sung the praises of Crighton’s deeply resonant, ineffably Australian vocal delivery.

With the release of his scorching new single ‘Your Country’, Crighton gives furious voice to country under siege with gripping feeling and conviction.

‘Your Country’ is a timely entry in the songbook of a uniquely incisive artist at the peak of his powers and will be released on the 25th of September. William Crighton has never been more urgent in his message—or more articulate in his delivery.
