Describing his solo gigs as being like “campfire shows”, Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson still puts the music above all else.
Excited to perform for South West fans once again, Jamieson will swing by Settlers Tavern, Margaret River on November 8 before heading to Bunbury’s Prince of Wales Hotel on the 11th.
Funds raised from the merchandise will go towards charity organisation Support Act, helping people in the Australian music industry through injuries and mental health problems.
“I’ve always been well looked after at the Prince – it’s always been very accommodating –and the audiences there are really great,” he said.
“This tour involves a lot of solitude, and there’s a lot of beauty to take in as well.
“This type of touring allows for a little more time to reflect in your own head, do a bit more writing, and soak everything in.”
Jamieson said the show would provide “something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue”, touching on Grinspoon’s influence over Australian music.
“These shows get me closer to what the legacy might be because they are actually very intimate, it’s all really lovely,” he said.
“I don’t know how to fathom the fame, but it’s lovely doing these solo shows where I get to meet people.
“They can tell me their stories about how they found the band and what they like about it.”
The show will mark Jamieson’s second trip to Bunbury this year, after performing with Grinspoon at Groovin the Moo back in May.
Jamieson began 2018 by starring in the Australian version of hit Broadway musical Green Day’s American Idiot, honouring the ultra-popular 1990s/2000s rock group.
He then teamed up with Chris Cheney, Josh Pyke, Tim Rogers and 17 other Australian musicians for July’s White Album Concert tour.
Reflecting upon his hectic schedule, Jamieson said he had had a ball throughout the year.
