Playing everything himself and paying homage to some of his all-time favourite blues songs, along with a recently discovered but long-forgotten songwriting collaboration by Australian blues and roots pioneer Ross Wilson, Alone With Blues showcases Diesel's blues DNA on a macro level, in the process, showing new facets to an artist known for his diversity.
Having taken stock by releasing the greatest hits package, Diesel 30, in 2018, the set will be littered with hits that span his 30+ years in music, including Tip Of My Tongue, Cry In Shame, Don't Need Love, 15 Feet of Snow, plus many more. The evening promises to showcase his unique blending of rock, soul, r&b and blues, a blend that mixes seamlessly with the Alone with Blues tracks that he'll be previewing for the very first time on the night.
If you have ever witnessed a solo set from Diesel, you'd know it is delicate and visceral at once, a pure expose of an artist still exploring the possibilities of his two instruments, at times sounding as bombastic as a whole band, all the while making the most of the intricacies of a theatre environment.
