The Swamp Fox, Tony Joe White, is a bona fide legend of the music game that has been honing his craft for the best part of 50 years. And it will be on display once more as he returns to Australia for an 18 date tour that will see him play shows in Sydney, Dee Why, Cronulla, Hurlstone Park, Coogee, Bulli, Kincumber, Newcastle, Medlow Bath, Devonport, Melbourne and Newport.
The tour will also include appearances at Boogie Festival, Forth Valley Blues Festival, Blenheim Festival and Byron Bay Blues Festival.
Tony Joe White was literally born for the blues, the part-Cherokee musician being brought up as part of a big brood on a cotton farm in Louisiana, raised on a diet of Lightnin' Hopkins and local bluesmen, an upbringing reflected to this day in his evocative, haunting music and adding a veneer of authenticity to everything that he touches.
Gems like "Polk Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night in Georgia" were just the beginning. His recording career has now spanned parts of six different decades and spawned well over 20 albums with his songs recorded by Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones and Etta James. He has worked in the studio or on stage with list of artists that would make your head spin - Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, The MGs, Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, Waylon Jennings, Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris and recently appeared with the Foo Fighters on Letterman as they performed Polk Salad Annie which lead host David Letterman to say "If I was this guy, you could all kiss my ass." Fair call.
TJW is not one to sit still and he's still as relevant as he ever was with the release of his latest album, Hoodoo. Culled from an initial stack of roughly seventeen tunes, the nine songs that comprise Hoodoo come alive in the haunting atmosphere and intensity of the stripped-down recording process. Cut mostly live to tape-vocals and all-much of Hoodoo consists of first takes and it was lauded by the UK's The Independent as "Tony Joe White's best album.".
So whether you've been with White for the duration or are a newcomer to his incredible music it matters not - come along and join the festivities when the inimitable Tony Joe White hits Australia in March 2013. You just can't keep this good man down.
