The Swamp Fox, Tony Joe White, is to put it simply a bona legend of the music game and at the age of 73 he just keeps getting better. So it with great pleasure Love Police are pleased to announce his return to Australia in April 2017.

Tony Joe White will play shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Meeniyan, Sydney, Fremantle and Perth plus appearances at Byron Bay Blues Festival.

Tony Joe White was literally born for the blues, the part-Cherokee musician being brought up as part of a big brood on a cotton farm in Louisiana, raised on a diet of Lightnin’ Hopkins and local bluesmen, an upbringing reflected to this day in his evocative, haunting music and adding a veneer of authenticity to everything that he touches.

Gems like “Polk Salad Annie” and “Rainy Night in Georgia” were just the beginning. His recording career has now spanned parts of six different decades and spawned well over 20 albums with his songs recorded by Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones and Etta James. He has worked in the studio or on stage with list of artists that would make your head spin - Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, The MGs, Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, Waylon Jennings, Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris and recently appeared with the Foo Fighters on Letterman as they performed Polk Salad Annie which prompted host David Letterman to say "If I was this guy, you could all kiss my ass." Fair call.

TJW is not one to sit still, and he’s still as relevant as he ever was with the release of his latest album, Rain Crow.  American Songwriter magazine gave it 4 from 5 star review and said “Rain Crow is yet another stunning example that Tony Joe White’s uncompromising, often ominous vision, shows no signs of diminishing.”

So whether you’ve been with White for the duration or are a newcomer to his incredible music it matters not – come along and join the festivities when the legend that is Tony Joe White hits Australia in 2017.
