Metro doubles down on folk with Daniel Champagne + Karl-Christoph

The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso - Daniel Champagne - first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.

The next several years saw Champagne traversing North America, the UK, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium's Labadoux Festival and Australia's Woodford just to name a-few.

“Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical”themusic.com.au.

Champagne’s music has seen him tour and share stages with the likes of Jake Shimabukuro, Jesse Cook, Roderigo Y Gabriela, Richard Shindell, The Ragbirds, The Waifs, Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT Tunstall & Ani DiFranco.

As one reviewer recently wrote, "still in his early twenties, the distances he has been would be more frequently associated with veterans of the Folk scene" – The Dwarf.

Champagne is regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz, holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes. His latest release "Fault Lines" is available now, and is receiving airplay and accolades globally.

Special Guest Karl-Christoph

From small town Mulgoa, Karl has spent nine years on the road busking, writing and milking life for what it's worth. He's supported artists such as Matt Corby, Bec Sandridge, Tigertown, Lydia (USA) and Little Earthquake; frequenting many popular venues across Australia, from Melbourne to Adelaide, Sydney to the far North Coast.

With his musical penmanship, a thirst for self-producing, and a recent move to the very top of the Blue Mountains; 2017 saw Karl renovating and building a studio in his wood cabin as well as beginning to record his first proper debut record.

One to watch if you enjoy lyrical folk, soundtracks for your road trip or some tunes to break your heart while you drink.
