Fun, free and folk what could be better?
Andrew Morris unveils his sixth solo release, The Situationist, on Monday 15th October and will tour the east coast throughout October and November.

Inspired by Tom Hodgkinson's counter-consumer culture manifesto "How To Be Free", Morris summoned as many of the members of The Gin Club as he could muster and put on the beers at his newly set up Northern Rivers home studio. The Situationist is what ensued, a collection of warm and spontaneous gems.

Reflecting his current solo shows, The Situationist includes live favourites such as Dylan's 'It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry', Gillian Welch's 'Look At Miss Ohio' and Tim Rogers' (You Am I) 'Heavy Heart'.

It is completed by an acoustic reworking of 'Lover' from Morris's Needs & Wants album and a handful of new originals, including 'The Uplift', featuring some of Banjo Patterson's writing set to music.

Known for his work with The Wilson Pickers and Bernard Fanning, Morris will release The Situationist on his own new label - Soul Arch Recordings and he also has a few other exciting upcoming releases in the works too.

Accompanying Morris on tour will be young Sunshine Coast artist Zac Gunthorpe, who will also release his debut EP Lost Love Lies through Soul Arch Recordings on Monday 15 October.

Influenced by the likes of Dylan, The Band and Neil Young, Gunthorpe makes a big impression with an acoustic guitar, harmonica and a true voice.

The Situationist by Andrew Morris will be released by Soul Arch Recordings, Monday 15 October, via iTunes or you can also purchase a copy at any of the live shows.
