I’m interrupting the usual ephemeral broadcasts to share some breaking news. Talented Dunedin musician and all round good sort Bill Morris has released a music video for his upcoming album “Mud”.
Bill has a healthy grounding in the real, the raw and the rugged – and that earthy presence comes through in his music. He is also an experienced storyteller and a number of his works are inspired by New Zealand’s past.
Among my favourite tunes from his upcoming album is ‘Mud’, the story of the labourers that forged the world we know today. Bill has pulled together a fantastic selection of black and white photographs from the Alexander Turnbull Library to illustrate their story.
I hope you all have the good fortune of seeing Bill play live, but in the meantime you can enjoy his new video on YouTube.
