18 & Over For Xavier Rudd, writing music and living his life are one and the same. "I'm literally just singing about the things that are going on around me," he says of his sublime and soaring indie-folk. Environmental work, activism, veganism, spiritualism, surfing, family camping trips in the bush and dog walks on the beach; everything Rudd does, he pours into song. The result is a personal sound that strikes a universal note. The Australian multi-instrumentalist's new album title track best encapsulates this idea. Backed by the gentle strum of acoustic guitar, on 'Storm Boy', Rudd sends out a postcard of a sun-drenched life lived outdoors: "Freedom of the heart is what we crave / When we sit by the river with a cup of tea / Watch the movement of the tide in the gentle breeze," he sings, in his comfort-blanket voice.
