WILLIAM CRIGHTON: Combining traditional music with unexpected and progressive experimentation William Crighton is a fiery punk folk balladeer who’s reputation as a “must see” live act is growing quickly throughout the world. He has released two albums since 2016 with his latest album, Empire (2018), acclaimed for its visceral mix of evocative lyrics, and rock’n’roll sparks.

“William Crighton delivers the years best album, Australian or international, with the charged rock and heartfelt lyrics of Empire” – Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus), The Saturday Paper.

His live show has been received to high acclaim across the world from sell out tours and festival appearances in his home land of Australia including Blues Fest, WOMAD, Woodford Folk Festival and Dashville Skyline to appearances at the Cambridge Folk Festival and Boomtown in the UK, Tonder in Denmark and successful tours throughout UK, Sacndinavia and Canada.
Unique and intense William Crighton grew up in the NSW Riverina, Australia. He mesmerizes the audience with documentations of life, nuanced story telling and perceptive philosophy combined with death defying musical accompaniment. He performs as a duo with friend Matt Sherrod (Drums, Modular Synth) and as a trio, adding Julieanne Crighton (vocals, guitars, fx).

His family of followers are growing fast throughout the world.
