Archer harvests his songs from the stories he finds buried all across the country— as he walks along Australia’s dust cloaked highways, as he labours on a Murray River picking crew, twisting fruit from the vine in the Riverina sun. The weathered songs Archer plays are sparse and raw – it’s music steeped, even driven, by geography, the music of distances vast and landlocked, from a life undisturbed by the passage of time.

    There’s something vital about his ancient folk and blues, his naked voice and wounded guitar, something irrefutable; the past tattooed upon the present.

    Archer will showcase at the Toff in Town on Saturday November 14, with Mick Thomas and Jess Riberio.
