Benjamin Booker

This tour has passed

 

The gravelly-voiced star has a sharp eye for storytelling and a refreshing take on blues and boogie. Booker has spent the last year on the road, touring with Courtney Barnett and Jack White, and at European summer festivals, Lollapolooza, FYF Fest and many others. He joins us for a run of Laneway sideshows with a fire in his eyes and a Violent Shiver.  Booker’s self-titled debut is out now via ATO Records/Rough Trade Records.

“An electrifying introduction to the future of the blues.” – Clash Music

“‘Violent Shiver’ is a blustering, rollicking explosion of guttural guitar, while ‘I Thought I Heard You Singing’ creaks along with an aching, understated intimacy…When Booker goes for the heartstrings, he pulls hard.” – The Guardian
