Don Morrison

 
 

Fly Away is Don's eighth release since 2002 and his fifteenth in a career that started in Adelaide, Australia way back in the late ‘70s.

A songwriter, singer, guitarist, story teller and guitar maker, Don has shared the stage with many of the biggest names in Australian music, like Midnight Oil, Hunters and Collectors, Billy Thorpe, Joe Camilleri, Australian Crawl, Men At Work and a hundred more in more than thirty years in music game.
He has worked with Bo Diddly, Joe Cocker, Rodriguez and even Billy Ray Cyrus, He was brave enough to stand next to Shakin' Stephens in a urinal and nearly killed by Willie Nelson in Austin, Texas.

He’s done gigs from Bridgetown to Byron Bay, from Sydney to San Antonio, Perth to Penrith and released Albums and CDs of original songs under his own name and that of his many bands such as The Bodgies, The Ghetto Blasters, The Elmores, The Lonely Cosmonauts and now Don Morrison’s Raging Thirst.
He’s written all about it in a rollicking autobiography “This Could Be Big"

He might not be as young and pretty as he once was but he’s not done yet. Dubbed the Larrikin Troubadour Laureate of Adelaide, Don is playing, singing and writing songs better than ever. The sense of humour that has seen him through the hardest times in a notoriously brutal industry still shines through in his songs and performances. He makes his own world renown Donmo resonator guitars, writes his own songs and sings them himself.

In Raging Thirst, Don is joined by his two sons, Eddie on bass and Jake on lead guitar and Hammond organ. Long time ally, Andy Przygonski joins in on drums.
