Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd has long since established himself as one Australia’s more iconic voices. Drawing influence from Aborigine culture, Rudd combines contemporary guitar with the didgeridoo, stomp box, percussion and other instruments.
With his seventh studio album, Spirit Bird, Rudd has established himself as an eclectic musician with a natural style. He combines soft, melodic vocals with unique instrumentals to create a sound that is all at once inspiring and heartbreaking. “Follow the Sun”—which first hit the web back in February—was well received by fans, while the album’s title track shares the same kind of folksy, gentle tunage that Rudd has become so well known for.
Xavier Rudd’s latest album, Spirit Bird, comes out on June 5 via SideOneDummy Records. Listen to the entire release in the streaming player below.
