GEOFF ACHISON

Landslide Records is proud to announce the release of SOVEREIGN TOWN, a vibrant new set of mostly original compositions from Australian singer-songwriter and gifted guitarist Geoff Achison. Produced by Achison and Ric Formosa, the album presents an acoustically oriented, intimate, organic and decidedly song-driven collection of 12 tracks inspired by the early days of Victoria’s gold rush. SOVEREIGN TOWN was recorded for Achison’s Jupiter 2 Records at Formosa’s Pilgrimage Studio in Ballarat, Victoria and represents his 15th release as a solo artist. For this project Achison used a selection of tunes and stories written for a small combo that includes Andrew Fry (Upright Bass), Dave Clark (Drums) and Liam Kealy (Organ). Since first arriving to tour in the U.S. in the mid- 1990s, he has garnered consistently strong reviews. Down Beat magazine lauded his music as “catchy, intelligent songwriting…he spills out blues guitar phrases that shed further light on various emotional states.” Elmore Magazine said, “Achison seems more like a singer/songwriter’s soul in Jeff Beck’s body.” And the Times of London called him, “One of the most gifted musicians to arrive on the scene ... his playing verges on the miraculous.” A hardworking road warrior, Achison is set for fall and winter tours in the USA and Europe. Please check out the video for the album’s lead track, ‘Skeleton Kiss’:
