My dear friend, Philip Rubinstein 1934–2021

I first met Phil on a rain-soaked day outside my house in Brunswick Terrace, Mullum. It was an accidental encounter, but we soon got stuck into a conversation about the parlous state of Australian universities.

Rick Price has walked the journey many musicians’ dreams are made of. From the very beginning, as a nine-year-old and the youngest member of his family’s band, music was Rick’s passion. Since those humble yet defining days, set amongst the backdrop of country Queensland, the self-taught artist has forged an internationally praised and respected career spanning more than three decades, earning him double platinum status for his greatest hits and numerous industry awards.

Rick relocated to Nashville USA in 2009, primarily to tour with his buddy and great friend, Tommy Emmanuel. After being back on stage playing to big live audiences, Rick, feeling inspired and re-energised, jumped straight into co-writing with other artists in Nashville. The result will certainly be a surprise to some of his diehard fans. Love, a recurring theme in his new work, where it once spoke of heartbreak and loss, now speaks of hope and transformation.

The Water’s Edge indicates new influences and a broader style. While there are still echoes of a great pop artist, country and blues meld beautifully with folk sounds to create an album that transcends genre. Audiences can expect to hear all these brilliant new songs and sounds from Rick, but as well he will never disappoint and the greatest hits will be performed as well.

Get into Rick Price’s dream at Twin Towns on Friday.
