Watty Thompson 'Album Launch' W/ Mfv & Rhys Scoular

_"Indie-bush balladeer" and "talk of the town" Watty Thompson, along with his Total Fire Band bring the uplifting energy of his acclaimed self-titled debut album to dates across East Coast Australia this May and June.

Watty Thompson’s new album creates a space in which to abandon all of your troubles and make time to live for the moment, and has Rhythms Magazine calling it, “… one of the finest releases you’ll hear in 2023.” 

In a gloriously unabashed Antipodean drawl, Watty Thompson explores themes of inward and outward love, togetherness, and a desire to strive and live beyond the material. It's affirming, joyous and inspiring, all played out against a background of rollicking country flavoured Australiana folk. Like it says on the tin, a little bit country, a little bit folk, 100% heart.

Off the back of the singles 'The Beauty That Surrounds Ya', 'Jenny', 'City To Run', 'The Only Heart I’m Breakin’ (Is My Own)' and now the full length album, the singer songwriter and his expansive collective of like-minded troubadours have arrived as a galvanising new force.

Watty Thompson and his Total Fire Band play La La La's on Thursday June 1st and will be joined by special guests MFV and Rhys Scoular.
