JOE GEIA RELEASES CAREER RETROSPECTIVE COLLECTION
One of this country’s most important and powerful voices – Joe Geia – is on the road again with a special new triple-CD release in tow as well as introducing songs from his 2016 release, North, South, East & West.
In a career spanning over three decades, Joe has become a renowned singer/songwriter, guitarist, didgeridoo player and influential figure in the development of contemporary Indigenous music. He writes music of bravery and beauty, telling of Aboriginal life in Australia, of the quest for justice and belonging, of history, family and love.
He is widely regarded as a pioneer of contemporary Aboriginal music, first coming to prominence as a member of the influential band, No Fixed Address. And now his solo career has been captured with a special three-disc compilation that brings together his remarkable solo releases for the first time.
The release includes his classic albums Yil Lull (1988) and Nunga, Koori and A Murri Love (2005) and last year’s, North, South, East & West.
“I want to promote change and understanding, melodically and harmoniously,” Joe says, “While at the same time still sharing the little known aspects of Aboriginal history.”
He is perhaps best known for his song and album of the same name “Yil Lull”, regularly described as Australia’s unofficial Indigenous national anthem. “Yil Lull” has been covered by many of Australia’s best-known recording artists.
Joe has never stopped writing, recording and touring and will this year hit the road for a run of shows to celebrate the compilation – which will be available to buy online at http://joegeia.com/.
“To have all my music together in one set has been something I have been hoping to do for a very long time,” Joe says. “And I can’t wait to get out for some more shows playing as much of it as we can.”
