Acclaimed singer-songwriter and former Jan Juc resident Xavier Rudd has included Geelong on the road map of his international Storm Boy tour that will take him to 17 countries.

Rudd released his ninth studio album Storm Boy on May 25.

The Warner Music produced album includes Rudd’s latest single Walk Away, which is jam packed with wistful wisdom.  

Rudd’s soulful odes provide a spiritual commentary about issues including the environment, vegetarianism and surfing, with his signature stirring folkie rhythm.  

“I’m literally just singing about the things that are going on around me,” Rudd told Warner Music about Storm Boy.

Rudd played multiple sold-out shows in North America and has proved his popularity in Australia by selling out shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

He will take his earthy vibes to Europe after his Australian shows.

“I am proud of my new music and I’m excited to bring it to the people. Blessed again to be playing shows this year in so many countries around this magical planet,” Rudd told Nettwork Music Group.

It has been six years since Rudd released his last solo album Spirit Bird to critical acclaim. The album charted at number two on the ARIA charts – Rudd’s highest charting album to date.

The veteran artist began releasing music 16 years ago, with the album To Let in 2002.

The albums White Moth and Food in the Belly won Rudd gold ARIAs in 2007 and 2005, and his 2004 album Solace won a platinum ARIA.

He told Music Feeds that he wrote some of the songs for Storm Boy 10 years ago.

“I guess it’s a reflection of life over the past … well, I guess I’ve written these songs over the past probably five or six years, but a couple of them even longer – like 10 years ago. There’s a couple I’ve had sort of tucked away and waiting for the right time to bring them through, some special little songs that I had,” he said.

Rudd recorded Storm Boy at New Brighton in New South Wales, he told Music Insight.

“I built a studio/house on the river there and tracked it at home. Chris Bond produced the album – he was great to work with,” he said.

“It’s all there on Storm Boy. My records are reflections of chapters in my life. This chapter feels strong and powerful, full of love and gratitude.”

Rudd will bring his lyrical genius to Deakin University’s Costa Hall on August 25.
