LUCKY OCEANS ‘Purple Sky: Songs Originally by Hank Williams’


Available on backorder


Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist, Lucky Oceans, has brought together some of his favourite Australian singers and musicians to capture the gem-like quality of the songs of Hank Williams on his new album ‘Purple Sky’. Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers, Bill Chambers, Don Walker, Linda & Vika Bull, Tex Perkins, Matt Walker, Jeff Lang, along with US star Eugene “Hideaway” Bridges bring their own unique feel and sound to the songs, which help stretch and push the songs into new territory.

Lucky explains his approach to making the album. “Hank pioneered a unique musical style that we could have tried to recreate, but that’s already been done. So we set out to change the sound of a Hank Williams song, bringing out the poetry of the lyrics.  He is the man who made song writing intensely urgent and personal”.
