About this item
Fraser A Gorman arrives on our shores with a bagful of cool, funny, heartfelt and super-infectious tunes, on debut album 'Slow Gum.' Although a core member of fellow Melbourner Courtney Barnett's Milk! Records label troupe and close pals and collaborator with King Gizzard and the Lizzard Wizzard, Gorman cuts a dash entirely his own.
He drinks deep from the well of wayward folk contemporaries such as Bill Callahan and Cass McCombs, while also genuflecting to heroes such as Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. Its lackadaisical charms bely Gorman's wryly affecting way with a lyric, however, as he sings tongue in cheek couplets over gorgeous slide guitar twangs and early offbeat melodies.
Fraser A Gorman has achieved a great deal in the past 12 months firmly establishing himself as one of Australia’s most promising rising talents. His captivating songwriter abilities and charismatic live performances have secured his place on some of Australia’s most loved festival bills including Meredith, Falls, Queenscliff Port Fairy and Boogie. He has also supported the likes of Mark Lanegan, First Aid Kit, Tex Perkins, Gary Clarke Jr., Wanda Jackson, You Am I and Simone Felice.
