Morgan Bain - Why Don't You Stay National Tour

Morgan Bain Australian Tour. Morgan Bain will be performing in PerthFremantle (Perth), AdelaideFitzroy (Melbourne), BelgraveMelbourneHobartLauncestonNewcastleWollongongSydneyHunter Valley and Windsor.

Fresh off the back of a prestigious WA Music (WAM) Song Of The Year win last fortnight, esteemed Perth alternative soul tunesmith and multi-instrumentalist, Morgan Bain has announced the release of his new single, Why Don’t You Stay, alongside a national tour. Kicking off on the main stage at West Coast Blues’N’Roots (Fremantle) on March 29, alongside two Perth shows in April, the tour will then move through Adelaide, Melbourne, Tasmania, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle and will finish up at Sydney Blues & Roots Festival (Windsor) on May 16.

Organ driven with rich and varied vocals, Bain’s self-described ‘alternative moody soul’ sound is perfectly showcased in the new single, Why Don’t You Stay. The track was recorded and produced at The Wastelands studio with ARIA award winning producer, Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe, Meg Mac, Little Birdy) and mastered by Grammy Award winner, William Bowden of King Willy Sound (Goyte, Eskimo Joe,Tim Finn, Empire of the Sun). Bain explains, “The song is about anxieties that come with giving your everything to someone and how to not let those anxious thoughts take over and get in the way of how you really feel.”

The video clip for the single was directed by Steve Browne (Scalphunter, Tired Lion, Timothy Nelson & The Infidels) and tastefully shot at Chris Huzzard studio. Dark, powerful and thought provoking, the clip depicts a young man's internal conflict and anxiety about a situation. “The video is simple but complicated in an emotional way, just like the song and its concept,” says Bain.  

With a song writing maturity well beyond his tender twenty years, Bain’s prolific songwriting talents have already been acknowledged on a global level several times this year, and a number of tracks off his latest EP, What You Believe (released mid 2014) are in this mix of accolades. Earlier this month, Bain was announced as a semi finalist in the US International Songwriting Competition (Unreleased song, Lost In The Moment), a finalist in the US John Lennon Songwriting Contest (EP track, In The Middle) and he also scooped his third WAM Song of The Year award (EP Track, Hold On) on March 21.

Working hard to make a name for himself and becoming known for his incredible vocals and live performances in his home state of WA, Bain is excited to take his show to a national audience. Hitting the road as a trio (guitar/keys/bass/drums), with funding from the WA Dept of Culture and The Arts, the tour will be “Jam-packed with alternative soul… it’s a pretty upbeat show, but does have light and shade.”
