He’s one of Australia’s most recognisable musicians and this Friday, he’ll release his brand new EP entitled ‘7 Axes’ (pictured above).
The new recordings see Diesel pay homage to some of his favourite ‘axemen’, with the guitar playing the starring role on each of the tracks, covers of famous recordings by artists from Neil Young to Jimi Hendrix, with the singer-songwriter saying, “We all know that Hendrix was an amazing guitarist but people forget that he was also a great songwriter. I couldn’t be intimidated by his legend and I just had to make the song my own. That was true of all the songs.”
To celebrate the release of the new EP, Diesel will hit the road in March for five shows – one each in each of the five major centres, finishing up in Fremantle on Saturday March 26. Tickets are on sale now.
