Chad Wilkins will be launching his long-awaited first album Show Us the Way of the Heart this weekend.

This will be an inspiring evening of heart-opening music, including an opening set by the magnificent Murray Kyle, followed by Chad Wilkins, who will be joined by 10 special guest musicians to help facilitate the journey.

Chad’s music is more of an invitation than a performance – an experience to be entered into. Folky, progressive, contemplative, mystical – but the point is the message. His songs vary from upbeat, positive-vibe celebration tunes to deep, devotional guided meditations, all showcasing conscious lyrics – challenging, provoking, inspiring, drawing, awakening.

The new full-length album Show Us the Way of the Heart is an undiluted musical articulation of the heart of Chad Wilkins. Recorded at Panoramix Studio in the hills of behind Mullum, the album was done mostly live with very few overdubs with the purpose of maintaining the raw, spontaneous feeling and spirit of live recording while harnessing the warmth and quality of analog studio recording.

Presenting diverse instrumentation on each track, each song is unique, spanning a large range of styles and genres.

Be inspired and stirred by the distinct spirit and atmosphere of peace that is encapsulated within the music of this mystic minstrel.

Saturday March 1 Kulchjam – 1 Acacia St, Byron industrial estate.

Doors: 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

$15 entry / $30 with a CD.

Find Chad on Facebook.
