CPAF is elated to announce that soulful powerhouse RADICAL SON will be headlining our Community Day FREE CONCERT on April 11 2015, at Footscray Community Arts Centre.
Effortlessly crossing genres from soul to hip-hop and beyond, Radical Son is a standout vocalist and songwriter like no other.
His often-poignant lyrics chart a course from hopelessness to healing; mercilessly deconstructing what is, and forever imagining what could be. Radical Son's music and stories are always guided by his Indigenous heritage from the Kamilaroi nation of Australia and the south pacific nation of Tonga.
As a vocalist, Radical Son has a unique ability to deliver as a soul singer, rapper and spoken word artist.
This natural dexterity defines his earned place and presence in the contemporary musical landscape. The back-bone of Radical Son's stories continuously urge our human spirit to approach life through love and compassion.
His music, both potent and sublime, conjures uncompromising visions and merciless lyrics of where we’ve come from and what could be.
Radical Son's been making music for the people for 10 years. His fantastic 2014 full length debut album 'Cause 'n Effect', featuring spoken word by Archie Roach and Mau Power, is a perfect blend of soul, hip-hop, dub and reggae-esque influences; moving lyrics, original rhyme style, haunting melodies and captivating spoken word are just some parts of his magic.
Like Amy Winehouse, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Marvin Gaye and Barry White? You will LOVE this.
RADICAL SON'S album 'Cause 'n Effect' is available on iTunes here.
