Former Powderfinger Guitarist Darren Middleton Announces Australian Tour And Solo Album

Darren Middleton

Former Powderfinger guitarist Darren Middleton is set to tour Australia with his brand new solo album.

The Australian songwriter’s third solo EP TIDES is set to be released on Friday, September 21.

Middleton’s new song Some People features guestie vox from Kelly Lane of Skipping Girl Vinegar. The music video was made by Melbourne-based director Nathan Dalton who happened to be a big fan of Darren from the early Powderfinger days.

Middleton says that the song explores the idea of “trying to find yourself in today’s world of immersion and over sharing.”

“It talks about how precarious it can be to open yourself up, for people to dissect, so you keep a little of yourself for safekeeping,” he said.

The 46-year-old told fans, “The reason being, it has been a damn long time since I’ve released some new work and booked some special shows to boot! I’ve been squirrelled away for the last 18 months, working on film score but also working on this new album of mine, titled ‘TIDES’.

“I won’t talk too much about it now…best thing to do is have a listen/pre-order it and come see one of these shows. The album is an absolute cracker, full of life and full of special guests…. some of whom will join me at these shows.” 

Fan will have a chance to see Darren perform his new album live for the first time when he heads out on an Aussie East Coast Tour with an all-star band this October.

His all-star band include: Vika & Linda Bull and Kelly Lane, Graeme Pogson (The Bamboos), Luke Hodgson (Meg Mac), Xani Kolac and Louis Macklin (JET), and Ashley Naylor.
