Richie Weed (the moniker of Tumbleweed frontman Richie Lewis) launching his debut solo album Strays with a national tour
All starting in his home town, Heritage Hotel, Bulli on Saturday August 17.

Richie says of Strays, “I was compelled to make this album because I wanted to make something that was authentically me, I had been writing songs over the last couple of years that didn’t suit Tumbleweed, they didn’t fit the mould, all these songs that didn’t have a home, they were like a collection of strays and I wanted to give them a home.”

Richie recruited an array of friends to play as part of his live band with core members Natalie De Silver (The Dandelion) on guitar, flute and organ, long-time collaborator Matt Houston on bass, and fellow Tumbleweed member Steve Obrien on Drums. They were joined in studio for the album recording by guests Luke Spook (The Pinheads) on Pedal steel and Mellotron, Damien Lane and Jolyon Pagett (Dropping Honey) on backing vocals and Karl Webber (The Pink Fits/The Escarpment) on harmonica.

Recording the whole thing was Jez Player in his now infamous Shed Studio in Stanwell Park. Recorded live to tape it captures the raw live sound of Richie and the band, “I wanted to make something unique and diverse, I wanted it to form organically over the skeleton I had created. Something that was honest and raw, that said something, nothing is hidden, it’s all out in the open.” says Richie.


Don’t miss this opportunity to see Richie Weed with his full band playing the album Strays from beginning to end.
