Within a short time William Crighton has drawn a big buzz in Australia. Rolling Stone featured him as one of Australia's hottest rising stars late last year. He's been booked on a seamless string of festivals including WOMADelaide, opened for The Beach Boys and The Temptations on tour, received radio play around the country, gathered 4 and half star album reviews, and a stunning set of live reviews.
Not one to rest on his laurels, William has recently returned from international showcases in Canada and released a 7'' vinyl single titled Hope Recovery that he's touring nationally in May and June.
