Tony Joe White 2013

The Swamp Fox
RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA IN MARCH 2013

You may know him as the Swamp Fox, you may know him by his birth name, you may just know his timeless music, but it doesn’t really matter how you know him – the main thing is that you’re acquainted at all with the one-and-only Tony Joe White.

This bona fide legend of the music game has been honing his craft now for the best part of 50 years. He was literally born for the blues, the part-Cherokee musician being brought up as part of a big brood on a cotton farm in Louisiana, raised on a diet of Lightnin’ Hopkins and local bluesmen, an upbringing reflected to this day in his evocative, haunting music and adding a veneer of authenticity to everything that he touches.

His recording career has now spanned parts of six different decades and spawned over 20 albums, and he’s had his songs recorded by Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones and Etta James, so he’s clearly no mug with a tune. He can dish them out himself though, having worked with genre stars such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, The MGs, Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, Waylon Jennings, Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris, to name but a few of the big names who’ve shared a stage or studio with White over the journey.

And TJW is no peddler of mere nostalgia, he’s still relevant as ever – his last album of studio originals, The Shine (2010) was lauded by many as up there with his finest work ever.

So whether you’ve been with White for the duration or are a newcomer to his incredible music it matters not – come along and join the festivities when the inimitable Tony Joe White hits Australia in March 2013. You just can’t keep this good man down.
