Cavill is no stranger to the Australian music scene. In a career spanning more than 9 years, the Melburnian singer-songwriter has played all over the country and released a string of acclaimed records with his erstwhile backing band, The Long Weekend. He brings his eclectic brand of music to the Stag & Hunter this Saturday June 20.
Take the folk-rock stylings of artists such as Neil Young and The Band, stir in some ’60s soul balladry, then add a very healthy dose of bluesy riffy goodness. Garnish with sharp, insightful songwriting and water-tight execution, and the result is Chris Cavill & The Prospectors.
The Prospectors sees Cavill tread new terrain, with an eclectic sound that exudes solemn maturity while retaining the energy and effervescence of his roots-rock foundations. With the experience of Dave Cafarella (drums), Peter King (bass/vocals) and Tom Braham (lead guitar) in tow, this is a band which can glide effortlessly between raw folk ballads, intricate instrumentation and rich vocal harmonies, and tub-thumping rockers.
