One of Australia’s foremost singer/songwriters, Richard Clapton paved the way for three generations of songwriters to write about the experience of being Australian. When he began his recording career in 1973, Australia was still in vice-like grip of the cultural cringe. He plunged into the deep water and in his wake followed the ‘Skyhooks’, ‘Paul Kelly’, ‘Cold Chisel’, ‘INXS’, ‘Midnight Oil’ and hundreds of others. Clapton’s songs are still on the radio. His records chart the political landscape of the nation and the turbulent lives of two generations. Famous for his Girls on the Avenue hit, Richard Clapton is one not to miss.
