About this Event

Van Walker is a Tasmanian native who's prolific songwriting productivity has seen him become a 'cult figure locally' in his adopted Melbourne, having written over 500 songs across many genres, realising 6 full length albums between 2008 & 2010, a selection of which the Fuse Music Group realised in 2012 on the Underneath the Radar compilation, which met with national critical acclaim, prompting Beat Magazine to quip: “If Bob Dylan was born 20 years later and grew up fraternising in Collingwood bars, he would sound like this,” and Mess & Noise to state, "Literary vigour and scathing social commentary, if there is any justice in this world, Underneath the Radar will provoke a radical awareness & appreciation of Van Walker’s songwriting talents."

Since then Van has been busy touring internationally, writing and releasing two albums with the powerpop outfit The Livingstone Daisies (2013, PBS Album of the Year) (2014 4.5 Stars AGE EG) with his partner Liz Stringer, his brother Callan, and Michael Barclay (Paul Kelly & Coloured Girls), recording and performing with Jeff Lang, Ezra Lee & Ash Davies as Heartbrokers ("boogie par excellence"); forming the three piece blues outfit Goatpiss Gasoline (Boogie Festival 2014/2015); while also writing and performing as a member of the critically acclaimed Vandemonian Lags stage production. He's currently finishing work on his solo album, his first in 10 years.
