No stranger to a bustling street corner nor a grand stage, Musketeer has spent the better part of the last decade honing his storytelling skills and songwriting craft in some of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
Wind, hail or shine, this hardened Australian folk troubadour has blazed through it all with steadfast fervour, howling his way onto the stage, often consumed in some sort of biblical rapture.
In 2022, Musketeer undertook his most ambitious journey to date. A road trip from Oslo to Istanbul. The troubadour traveled across Europe with 7 other artists and played concerts, festivals and busked across 15 different countries. The trip was filmed and will be released as a 90 minute documentary along with an album of music recorded along the way.
In 2023 Musketeer will begin to release his most ambitious studio record thus far, a debut LP titled ‘Glorious Light.’ Working together again with his band from his home base of Hamburg, Germany, Musketeer produced the record with fellow Australian Singer-Songwriter Lucas Laufen. The album explores themes of war and hope, explores Christianity, touches upon Roman and Germanic Mythology and steals lines from Dante, Dylan and Hemingway. The album was recorded in an ex-Stasi Headquarters in former East-Berlin.
The first single will be released on the 9th of June, 2023.
‘Glorious Light’ follows Musketeer’s previous two studio EP’s, ‘The North Sea’ (2021) and ‘Seven Long Years.’ (2017)
