Xavier Rudd: The Outback Hippie

With his first instrument being his voice, Xavier Rudd began with the most primitive form of music. You wouldn’t have guessed it due to the 18+ instruments he is efficient in and plays during his one-man shows. As an Australian musical legend with Aboriginal blood running through his veins, Rudd clings toward this part of his ancestry for musical inspiration. Because Aboriginal natives do not receive the recognition Rudd believes they deserve, he has made it his duty to build the culture up through his music. His most recent album, Free Bird is possibly his most creative yet, including nature sounds and mesmerizing native chants that take listeners back to a time when people really connected with the earth. As a social activist and musician, Xavier Rudd has been blessed with the ability to connect people with his music and spiritual aspirations.
