Happy to be back in music

AFTER taking a break from music, born performer Chris Cavill realised he couldn't stay away.

Now the songwriter is back with a new album that he'll perform with his band the Prospectors in Goodna on Friday.

"I took a break from music for a couple of years and did a teaching degree," Cavill said.

"I quickly discovered I needed to have music as a part of my life.

"When I started listening to some old albums I got the inspiration to write music again.

"We started out with a lot of blues and roots, acoustic music and now we're mixing it up with some electric guitar and ukulele so it's more of a folk, '70s rock style."

Cavill said a lot of songs from the Know Your Destiny album were close to his heart.

"The song Across the Border is about the risk of getting back into music and not knowing what's on the other side," he said.

"The single Midnight Train is also a really popular track. The song Loretta is for my wife and it's about being madly in love with someone."

The Melbourne-based artist said he was excited to perform at Goodna's famous blues venue for the first time.

"Our live performances start off acoustically and then work their way up to an energetic, fast-paced show, which people seem to really like," he said.

"People can expect a great show with our new songs, some old stuff and some covers as well."

The Royal Mail Hotel will present Chris Cavill and the Prospectors' Midnight Train Tour on Friday from 7pm-10pm.
