a beautiful, troubling and ultimately uplifting gift of songs ” - Michael White

DARK MATTER

RELEASED AS A CD ON 14th MARCH 2020

AVAILABLE TO STREAM AND PURCHASE ON DIGITAL PLATFORMS FROM APRIL 1st, 2020

Howard's songs created a new map of Australia. From the red heart, where he penned his anthemic ‘Solid Rock’, to the wilds of Tasmania that gave birth to ‘Let the Franklin Flow’, he’s created a uniquely Australian voice, shaped from the landscape travelled and the people encountered.  

His songs dig down into what it means to be a modern Australian. They also reach across the globe and champion the cause of the common people, the environment and the injustices of colonisation. The passage of time has validated the issues brought to the fore in earlier years. 

From campfires to concert halls, he’s become an important addition to the evolving folklore of modern song. His songs rise out of a deep well of lived experience, underpinned by a philosophy, as incisive as it is inclusive. 40 years of singing, writing and journeying the globe have dinted but not broken this unconventional and independent poet of modern song. 

His new album, Dark Matter, his 14th solo album, continues to plumb the depths.

Our world is in peril in these dark times. It’s not enough to be a consumer. We shouldn’t waste our lives on crap. Politically, environmentally and socially, we must act to create a worthwhile future, not about stars or individualism but co-operation, otherwise, we won’t make it.” - Shane Howard
