“See My World is a fittingly accomplished, fourteen-track-long distillation of Skuthorpe’s considerable talents and innate connection to the sounds and expanses of this broad, burnt land. As a Nhunggabarra, Kooma, Muruwari man, Skuthorpe’s ties to Australia and Australiana run deeper than most, and his evocative compositions come polished off with a sincere reverence for the styles of the ’60s and ’70s that lends his work a broader timelessness and accessibility that is extraordinarily difficult to deny.” – The Music (AUS)
With six highly-regarded albums and music featured in documentaries such as John Pilger’s Utopia, First Nations artist and international touring singer-songwriter Glenn Skuthorpe is a masterful lyricist and compelling performer who gives voice to those whose stories must be heard.
Glenn’s self-produced fifth independent album See My World (Feb 2017) is evocative of the wide-open road with its folk-rock sound infused with country and blues and undertones of mid-sixties and early seventies dirty melodic rock. It demands the listener lean in closer, get on their feet and come along for the ride.
Following best album nominations for See My World and a string of highly successful tours (Byron Bay Blues Fest, Woodford, Cygnet, Illawarra, Calgary and Edmonton Folk Festivals to include appearing in the line up alongside Buffy Sainte-Marie), Glenn will tour extensively throughout Canada and Australia in 2019/2020 with his latest release Wild Winds of Dooga (Aug 2018) and as a lead artist on international touring project The Homelands Tour.
The Homelands Tour follows the night sky journeying along plains, down rivers and across oceans bringing established and young First Nations artists together on their Homelands and out onto the main stages at Festivals around the world. Featuring songwriting and music mentoring workshops, songwriters-in-the-round and a genre-fused and campfire-fuelled concert finale.
