SWT_HM_ADL: Sweet Home Adelaide and other great vowel depletions: Doctor D interview in The Clothesline
Doctor D is a songwriter and blues-rock guitarist based in London and Adelaide. As a frequentvisitor to Adelaide and now as a resident his songs celebrate all that is quirky and fun about South Aussie customs and culture. He is a two time winner in the SCALA annual Festival of Original Music, his 2013 winning entry ‘Gulf of St Vincent’ being a highlight of the show.
Fergus Maximus is a soulful singer/storyteller/saxophonist whose melodic pop/rock songs embrace all the important things- love, loss, mistakes with wit, intelligence and fun. His debut album ‘Restless Soles’ is an anthology of short stories about characters with itchy feet- their foibles and struggles. SWT_HM_ADL is the first collaboration between these two seasoned artists.
