Geoff Achison & The Souldiggers
Eyes On The Prize (Digi-Single launch party)
Featuring: Roger McLachlan, Richard Tankard & Dean Matters
+ special guests from Brisbane, Blues Arcadia (duo)

Come join master musician at the top of his game Geoff Achison, as he leads The Souldiggers for the launch of their new single ‘Eyes on The Prize’

The band (with award winning producer Gerry Pantazis on drums and mixing desk) have been working up the new recording.

This track oozes raw, roots-rock beginning with a rolling guitar riff and exploding into full force when the band kicks in. Geoff’s gruff vocal delivers his wry lyrics with full on rock attitude leading to a melodic and catchy chorus. Gerry’s fatback drum groove, Roger’s driving bass-line and Tank’s gorgeous keyboard arrangement allow Geoff to stretch out over an exciting instrumental section.

The accompanying Music Video is coming soon!
Make sure you’re there with The Souldiggers when ‘Eyes On The Prize’ goes LIVE to the world

A highly regarded guitarist, singer and songwriter, Geoff is equally adept at acoustic and electric styles. He can provide the full electrifying experience with his outstanding blues/rock combo The Souldiggers, or play a complete solo show with his superb command of the acoustic guitar. Whilst regarded as a Guitarists Guitarist, Geoff is also an all-round performer who delights in entertaining the audience with his wry sense of humor. His music is firmly steeped in the blues, but he injects funk, soul, jazz and even classical styles into the mix.

Since his arrival with Dutch Tilders, Geoff has been a driving force on the Aussie Blues/Roots scene, inspiring and influencing many of his younger compatriots. He enjoys the teaching aspect of his craft, presenting a number of workshops each year and appearing as a regular guest instructor at Jorma Kaukonen’s famous Fur Peace Ranch guitar camp in Ohio. The Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society named Geoff Achison their official ‘Patron’ in 2011, and Geofff celebrated 25 years with The Souldiggers in 2019
