Soul­ful Price on song

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - ESCAPE TO THE GOLD COAST -

RICK Price pos­sesses one of the most cel­e­brated and soul­ful voices in con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralian mu­sic.

In a di­verse and suc­cess­ful record­ing ca­reer span­ning al­most two decades, the in­spi­ra­tion for Price’s lat­est al­bum Re­vis­ited, could not have come more clearly.

‘‘ When­ever I go out and do an acous­tic show, with­out fail, peo­ple will say to me, ‘ when are you go­ing to make an acous­tic record?’,’’ Price said.

‘‘ So re­ally this was borne out of re­quests from peo­ple ask­ing me to do it. That was the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind it, to give peo­ple a dif­fer­ent look at the songs be­cause when you lis­ten to the old recorded ver­sions, they were done 15 to 18 years ago, they are very dif­fer­ent to how I sing and per­form them to­day.’’

The singer-song­writer has spent the past year tour­ing the United States and Europe with Tommy Em­manuel, and is bring­ing his acous­tic show to Twin Towns.

His ex­pe­ri­ence as a per­former shines through, con­nect­ing with his au­di­ence with his ex­ten­sive reper­toire of bal­lads and blues songs.

Price is joined by spe­cial guest Abby Skye ( pic­tured inset), a dy­namic vo­cal­ist and acous­tic per­former, with hits rang­ing from clas­sic to mod­ern and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

Rick Price is per­form­ing at Twin Towns on July 16 from 8.30pm. Tick­ets are $ 12 for mem­bers and $ 22 for non-mem­bers.
