Troy Cassar-Daley coming to Mandurah

TROY Cassar-Daley has come a long way from being a 12-year-old boy from Grafton busking at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Even as he expands the boundaries of his musical capabilities, as the diverse list of collaborators grows longer, as his swag of awards and size of his crowds has grown, the charisma powering his music has always remained a steady true north.

As he once sang, “I live the tales I tell”.

Throughout 30 years of making music, Cassar-Daley has been awarded many accolades, including 37 Golden Guitars, four ARIAs, two APRA Country Song of the Year awards, nine Australian Indigenous Artist Awards, four CMAA Entertainer of the Year awards and two National Indigenous Music Awards.

In 2017 he was the 50th inductee into the Australasian Roll Of Renown.

With many gold and platinum records, he has achieved 31 Number 1 chart singles, all of which are collected on his new compilation album Greatest Hits – along with signature album tracks and two brand new TCD originals.

The 42 songs in Greatest Hits have been the soundtrack to the everyday triumphs, struggles and good times of Australians from the city to the Outback.

“Doing an acoustic show of greatest hits mixed with stories of my life and musical journey will be very special,’’ Cassar-Daley said.

“As an artist you can’t get a more intimate experience with an audience than this style of show.

“It will be a musical adventure showing you how the songs sounded the day they were born; this to me is the purest way to hear them.”

Cassar Daley’s special guest for the Greatest Hits Acoustic Tour is 18-year old Jem, who will open the show for her dad every night.
