About Xavier Rudd
Shaped by his history while continuing to break new ground, Xavier Rudd is at his most creative on Spirit Bird – his 7th studio album. Encompassing all of his musical and spiritual gifts, Xavier once again paints breathtaking pictures with vivid, unmistakable tones; hypnotic ceremonial rhythms ease effortlessly into tender folk songs. Gritty guitar blues sits perfectly alongside entrancing yidaki passages. Rudd’s voice and the voice of his ancestors yet again bear truth and knowledge on the new album. At times Spirit Bird recalls the simplicity of Xavier’s 2004 release Solace, and at others the electricity of his 2008 release Dark Shades Of Blue. There is the youthfulness of his 2002 debut To Let, but the wisdom of 2010’s Koonyum Sun. It is Xavier Rudd by every measure. And whether it is a message, or just some words from the heart; Spirit Bird is a defining moment in the evolution of one of Australia’s most important artists.
