Australian Blues Legend CHRIS WILSON is back at the Caravan Club this time sharing the stage with UK's popular SANDI THOM (UK).
CHRIS WILSON has been an essential part of blues and rock music in Australia since taking the stage with the Sole Twisters twenty years ago. Stints with Harum Scarum and Paul Kelly and the Coloured Girls followed, and the end of the 80s saw Wilson as one of our finest vocalists, harmonica players and songwriters, fronting the superb Crown of Thorns. Chris has enjoyed the company of Australia’s best musicians on stage and in the studio when realising his own visions in song. Chris’ stage presence, voice and talent are all as big as the country he lives in. CHRIS WILSON is a master of his craft.
SANDI THOM (UK) became widely known in 2006 after a series of webcasts and the success of the single “I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)”. Sandi has released four studio albums: Smile… It Confuses People (2006), The Pink & The Lily (2008), Merchants and Thieves (2010).
Her latest album “Flesh And Blood” (2012), radiates the raunchy blues rock bravado of the opening track Help Me, followed by the country-flavoured Leadbelly classic In The Pines. The album also features the strutting, clavinet-led Stormy Weather; and the emotionally compelling finale Lay Your Burden Down.
“Sandi’s writing is fantastic, and her singing is wonderful. Sun Comes Crashing Down has all the right ingredients to be a hit.” says Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes, Joe Bonamassa).
The Caravan Club are very excited to have Sandi perform in Oakleigh all the way from Scotland to share the Caravan Club stage with Chris Wilson.
