Melbourne's soulful alt country troubadour, Rick Hart, will be taking his 'In The Midnight Sky Alone' album tour to the Shiraz Republic on Saturday May 4th, for two sets of his rootsy, melody soaked, heartfelt Americana tinged offerings.

Travelling with him to add sweet harmonies will be Vanessa Hart.

For The Country Record said “Hart is a refreshing counterpart to the plethora of male singers who have gone awry of country tradition. Hart is a perfect antidote to whatever bro-hangover still looms over.”

With a voice that floats with soulful warmth and honesty, Rick Hart’s words and melodies weave through all the dynamics and extremes of human emotions and relationships. A tapestry of melody soaked simplicity and thoughtful imagery.

This multi award winning songwriter (2014 Songwriter of the Year, Australian Songwriters Association awards), seamlessly weaves country, soul, blues and folk to create a soundscape all his own.

Australian Country music icon Bill Chambers said, "I've worked with Rick Hart, he's a superb songwriter! Rick's music is a unique combination of roots and country."

His debut album “Spiral”, was warmly received, culminating in him winning the prestigious “Songwriter of the Year” award at the Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) awards. The title track itself winning the Ballad Category.

Hart has supported and played alongside the likes of Bill Chambers, Things Of Stone & Wood and the Teskey Brothers along the way.

After a lengthy hiatus, this Melbourne alt country troubadour will be releasing his long awaited third album “In The Midnight Sky Alone” in early 2024, his most heartfelt and introspective offering to date.

Of the new album, co-producer and renowned Australian artist/songwriter Lachlan Bryan (Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes, The Pleasures) said, “Rick Hart writes and delivers beautiful country songs - they are thoughtful, poignant, heartbreaking and smart. I wanted to work on this record because I already believed every word he sings, and after spending weeks in the studio with Rick and his guitar, I now KNOW them all to be true”
