New single ‘Brunswick St’ – out May 11
“With traces of fellow Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly and an added steely spine augmented by fuzzy guitars and a driving rhythm, Webb creates his own visceral edge filled with an antipodean sheen – a sort of Bruce Springsteen stadium glow replete with an anthemic chorus and an infectious exuberance. It’s a heartfelt paean to a street, a city and an attitude that positively glows like an neon light.” – Backseat Mafia
The track comes packing a fabulous one-shot video shoot on Brunswick St and at The Evelyn Hotel.
Rich will be launching thew single with two great shows:
