ONE of Aus­tralia’s most tal­ented coun­try mu­sic stars will grace the stage at Rooty Hill RSL next month.

Troy Cas­sar-Da­ley has be­come one of the coun­try’s most-loved artists and this time he re­turns with a show like never be­fore.

Fol­low­ing on from his ac­claimed au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, Things I Carry Around, Cas­sar-Da­ley has pro­duced a 10th al­bum by the same name that en­cap­su­lates his jour­ney as a song writer.

Things That I Carry Around fo­cuses on sto­ries of Cas­sar-Da­ley’s fam­ily: love and loss have been wo­ven into song and take his au­di­ences on a jour­ney through­out his life.

Cas­sar-Da­ley said fans can ex­pect an up close and per­sonal show with an in­ti­mate en­vi­ron­ment.

“For peo­ple that have been to my shows be­fore it will be so dif­fer­ent — it will be very stripped back,” Cas­sar-Da­ley told The Stan­dard. “It is just me and my gui­tar on a lounge; there will also be a ques­tion and an­swer sec­tion.

“This al­bum was all heart and no head.

“It is spe­cial to me and my only full record of real emo­tion.

“Stylis­ti­cally it is like the mu­sic I lis­tened to as a child – there are cruis­ing songs but also get up and go type songs.”

In a spe­cial treat for fans, all tick­ets in­clude a two-course meal and a drink. The cost also in­cludes an au­to­graphed copy of either Cas­sar-Da­ley’s CD or au­to­bi­og­ra­phy.

Troy Cas­sar-Da­ley has touched the hearts of many with his out­stand­ing sto­ry­telling skills through mu­sic.
