ARIA Award-winning singer/songwriter Conrad Sewell will visit Bendigo on Wednesday.
The line-up for his day in our city starts at 91.9 HIT Bendigo where he will be talking and performing for local listeners.
HIT announcers Keeshia and Tim will take the popular singer/songwriter on an informal tour of the city, where they will look for a great coffee and take a trip on the Talking Tram.
But the highlight of the day for some 1000 students will be when the radio pair take Sewell to Girton Grammar to sing two songs from his latest album, Life and Healing Hands (Sony Music Australia).
Sewell will be accompanied by Girton students on keys, strings and vocals.
He is best known for his vocals on Kygo’s single Firestone and his number-one single Start Again.
Sewell began writing his debut album Life five years ago.
But the 31-year-old singer and songwriter from Brisbane became caught up in the standard scenario of many rock performers, drugs and alcohol.
“This album pretty much sums up my life to date,” he said.
“A lot of the album was inspired by my battles with addiction, regrets I have as a result of those battles, and the people I’ve hurt along the way.
“These were hard truths that I’ve had to come to terms with.
“Although the underlying message in most of the songs is one of redemption and hope that people can change.
“I suppose that’s what the journey of life is all about. I wanted to make a classic, timeless album with songs that will hopefully be played 50 years from now.
“No bells and whistles, just my truth and my voice singing with every ounce of pain and love that I have.”
With the support of family and friends, including his sister Grace, Conrad Sewell is back on the road again and looking forward to his engagement with the Girton students.
