No one has lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – as Archie Roach.
Tell Me Why is the new book and album from Archie Roach.
The memoir is a stunning account of his resilience and strength of spirit – and also of a great love story. It is intimate, moving and often confronting, and Roach’s story is an extraordinary odyssey through love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.
The companion album re-imagines 11 songs that have defined his extraordinary career, together with two songs that were penned but never recorded, two songs of early-influence, and three brand new recordings. The album is produced by Paul Grabowsky.
