Australian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd has signed a worldwide deal (except for Australia and Canada) with Anti (home to Tom Waits, Daniel Lanois, Neko Case and Michael Franti, among others) and will see his new album Food In The Belly released in the U.S. next year.
“I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead with Anti,” commented Rudd on the signing. “I feel it is a good ‘connection’ because of their artistic approach to music. This is evident in Anti’s catalogue of artists.”
Rudd, whose travels as a renowned surfer has both shaped and help spread his music, is an accomplished recording artist. His new album, Food In The Belly, follows the successful chart album Solace. Rudd has developed one of the most passionate and rapidly spreading grassroots audiences of recent times.
His original live performances have helped him build an international reputation… literally with his own hands and feet. From his bare soles on a wooden resonator box to the breath humming in his yidakis (didgeridoos), his work resonates from the ground up and the inside out.
