This dynamic duo will be heading to MEMO Music Hall this April to wow audiences with their amazing vocal talent and musicianship. NOT TO BE MISSED!
Fresh from the Bluesfest, Benny Walker, Yorta Yorta man from Echuca, will be making his return to the MEMO stage once again showcasing his talent for storytelling. Benny is the real deal and a star in the making. His killer voice and epic tales are mixed with a deep groove and passion for the land. Recent offerings SAVE and Oh No You Don’t shot to No. 1 on the AMRAP charts; the latter earning him four NIMA 2016 nominations and the award for “Best Aboriginal Talent” at The Age Music Victoria Awards. His latest songs produced by Jan Skubiszewski mix Blues and Roots with a contemporary guitar driven soul vibe. Benny Walker has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest, including Archie Roach, Alex Lloyd, Blue King Brown and Tim Rogers.

Tom Richardson is your newest oldest friend. His music will leave you feeling as fulfilled as your most inspired coffee date. Tom’s songwriting & story telling are a delicate balance of grace, truth and passion, evident of an artist whose soul shows signs of unpaved back-roads, with sleeves stained by countless hearts from all corners of the globe. Appreciating the liberation in exploration and privilege of forging relationships with listeners and cultures around the world, Tom has performed in 15 different countries, reflected in musical arrangements better categorised by emotion and experience, rather than genre. As 2018 marks a decade as a full-time independent artist, Tom Richardson might just be your next ‘over-life’ success story. Having shared songs and stories at almost every festival in his homeland Australia, and stages with Joe Bonamassa, Cold Chisel and John Butler Trio, his passport now shows memories of musical collaborations with Native American poets, Indian Kirtan masters, Fijian highland village choirs & indigenous Australian icons.
