Diesel is ready and raring to head back on the road from late this week for a huge run of regional dates in support of his just-announced new album ‘Americana’.
The regional dates follow on from the recent run of dates across the country as part of his ‘Pieces Of Americana’ tour.
The album, to be released on Friday July 01, is said to be a contemporary piece that his label tells us “incorporates elements of American roots music styles”.
“It means different things to different people,” Diesel says. “From moving out here from America, then moving back and forth again. I wonder if I would have as much fascination and love for American music if I had just stayed in America all my life and never made it out to Australia? It’s safe to say I probably wouldn’t.”
As for the live shows, he says, “I’ll be getting to more regional areas and returning to some cities. It’s been a journey making the record whilst doing the first stage of the tour with band, and with the record now mixed and en route to mastering, I can exhale and roll out some of the other tracks in a solo setting.”
Tickets for all dates are on sale now.
