Johnny Huckle: Friday Night Live On Artsound FM  

Award winning singer Johnny Huckle, a proud Aboriginal Wiradjuri Man, has performed in backyards and jails, at dry dusty festivals, rainy street corners and now for live radio. This album was broadcast by Canberra Music and Arts Radio Station ArtSound FM 92 on March 5, 2010. That day, Johnny performed a magical set and played each song as a chapter of a continuous intimate narrative. Another dimension in meaning is added to the storytelling as Johnny explains the personal significance of each song. This album creates the experience that Johnny is playing in your own lounge room. Johnny Huckle was born on the land of his Wiradjuri ancestors and was raised on the Aboriginal reserve on the outskirts of Condobolin. Johnny has a big voice and a swag of heartfelt songs that traverse the themes of love, identity and spirit. "Spirit Man" is his forth solo album. Johnny has been performing around the country for over thirty years. Johnny is more than a singer and musician, he is an entertainer with an infectious ability to engage his audience to the max. One minute he is comical and funny, the next moving and poignant. With his big voice and dynamic guitar work, Johnny is one huge package of talent. His musical diversity includes the Blues, Country, Contemporary Folk, R&B and Rock. As a song writer, his lyrics are potent and thought provoking as they deliver strong and inspiring messages. His songs reach out to his audiences, touching them on many levels. While some make you want to dance and sing along, others will bring a tear to your eye or leave you in deep thought.
