2009 has been a right bastard of a year. For mine a significant part of that has been the absence of Rafe Morris from our fair city.
Fortunately he’s sent out a media release to let us know that he’s coming back!
- LOCAL SINGER SONGWRITER RAFE MORRIS RETURNS HOME FROM WORLD TOUR.
Having spent the past 19 months performing throughout Asia and Europe promoting his debut album “It’s Not As Sh*t As It Looks”, Rafe Morris returns to Canberra to share an intimate evening of quality original music.
On Saturday the 14th of November, from 7.30pm, The McGregor Hall (corner of Barry Drive and Marcus Clarke, Canberra City) will come alive with songs both serious and silly, never before performed in Australia.
Rafe, the lead singer of popular local dance band Dahahoo, began performing as a solo musician in 2006 and quickly developed a reputation for his well crafted and highly entertaining songs. This, combined with his charming stage presence, made him a favourite among the folk and comedy circuits in Canberra and throughout Australia, recruiting fans with performances at various festivals including The National Folk Festival, The Woodford Festival and Corinbank.
Rafe’s music has been likened to that of The Whitlams, Darren Hanlon and Tripod and has distinct Australian character and humour. His time overseas has seen his work mature and develop both musically and lyrically and he has returned to Australia with a backpack full of new songs that are rich with detail, painting beautiful landscapes, characters and situations with his words and sung with a great energy to an eclectic mix of music.
Rafe has performed in over 15 countries, playing for The Prime Minister and a 10,000 strong audience at a communist celebration in Laos, Bohemians in Bohemia and bourgeoisie in Paris.
Come along on the 14th of November and see Rafe perform his new songs in his favourite city with his favourite musicians!
A night not to be missed!
