See these old-time images combined with evocative music in Delaney Davidson’s homage to lost ways of storytelling.
Blending live music and film, Arts Laureate Delaney gives us a glimpse of a forgotten time - dusty highways, old Europe, the ‘new world’ of the USA and New Zealand as you’ve never seen it before…..
Fresh from the success of his recent European tour, Delaney presents ‘Magic Lightbox’. Catch him before he disappears again for parts unknown.
Artist Laureate of New Zealand 2015, three times winner of the NZ Country Music Song of the Year Award, awarded NZ Country Music Album Of The Year, finalist for the coveted NZ Apra Silver Scroll Award, and Winner of One Man Band Competition in Zurich. His seminal influence and work with Marlon Williams on their “Sad But True” series aswell as his visionary production on Tami Neilson’s acclaimed album’s “Dynamite” and “Don’t Be Afraid” have also earned him great praise from the media and huge respect amongst his peers.
Delaney Davidson is a New Zealand Singer Songwriter, Musician, and Visual Artist. Forging his own identity as a figure of the European Tour Circuit, he has been a strong part of the Voodoo Rhythm Family of Switzerland since 2003 and has started to build a name for himself in the USA.
The guitar and harmonica of his simple live show have become his trademark, a small battered suitcase as his props table for the magic show, looping sounds over each other to achieve the full drive of a juke band. Howlin Wolf meets Suicide. Reverbed vocals and the slap back beats he builds with his Ghost Orchestra capture the sound of Chicago’s Chess Records.
