“TROY CASSAR-DALEY ‘THINGS I CARRY AROUND’” - There’s a singular line towards the middle of Troy Cassar-Daley’s majestic new album, Things I Carry Around that snags you like a sprig of barbed wire. “I live the tales that I tell.” This lies at the epicentre of what makes Troy probably this country’s pre-eminent and most important balladeer. He writes and sings about what he knows, without frill, without varnish, with a purity that somehow makes his experiences universal.
Troy is proud to present his new album Things I Carry Around live in concert with a very intimate presentation of the songs collated for the album, which is like opening up a large suitcase and having memories and family pictures and sounds and scents and tears and laughter and heartbreak all tumble out around you; a case full of life in all its variations. The songs were inspired through the process of gathering stories, the ones Troy’s fans have been waiting to hear – his own – in the book Things I Carry Around, published by Hachette Australia in August 2016.
Across his 30-year career, Troy Cassar-Daley has collected a slew of awards, including four ARIA’s, 32 Golden Guitars, two APRA Song of the Year Awards, nine Deadlys and four CMAA Entertainer of the Year Awards. Troy has sold in excess of 450,000 albums and has received gold and platinum records. The Things I Carry Around tour will be an unforgettable not to be missed concert experience for Troy Cassar-Daley fans.
