“Just glorious” The Guardian

“The Chills have never sounded better” Record Collector

2021, Phillipps is taking stock of things – everything. Yes, everything. The result is this
triumphant new Chills’ album ‘Scatterbrain’, a thought- provoking and evocative stock take from a man who has lived through good times and bad. But now, the world is a different place and optimism is in short supply. Viewed from the perspective of a man understanding his age and indeed his own mortality, ‘Scatterbrain’ is underpinned, as ever, with catchy melodies and an incisive turn of phrase; it takes a mature look at matters arising with a side order of perspective as opening cut ‘Monolith’ displays.

‘Scatterbrain’ is a life passing before your ears as uncertainty increases and fake news
rumbles on; during which aliens invade, Phillipps scales the walls beyond abandon as he probes the minutiae of worlds within worlds and the hourglass fills. A landmark album from one of the great modern song writers, it’s pure pop music for the new normal and we can’t wait to see how it ends...

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE - The young Australian singer-songwriter and one of a kind virtuoso brings his world tour back home with new music!

Daniel has released four studio albums, and tours relentlessly around the
globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, playing some of the biggest festivals under the sun, and sharing stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for
dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes.

“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he
coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary
Herald, CANADA

“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show- stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA

“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.”
