Last year, in an unforgettable tour de force, William Crighton gave Tønder Festival a taste of his vocal power in his song Jesus Blues. “Jesus got the blues, and I’m about to lose” leads up to “I want my money back.” The song draws on folk and rock, telling a story that digs deep into spiritual layers, giving the finger to religion and the church. It is on his debut album William Crighton from 2016, an album that, like his concerts, won accolades from the critics. The Australian newspaper wrote, “Once in a lifetime, a concert exceeds all expectations and hits you with elegance, majestic songs and the quality of the material.” In 2017, Crighton made the single Hope Recovery (Talking To God), and in 2018, album number two, Empire, ensured William Crighton’s position as one of Australian music’s strongest cards right now. His only Danish festival concert in 2019.
