Geoff Achison is on the trail again with Sovereign Town, an acoustic, intimate and song-driven album, inspired by Australia’s gold rush of 1850. It examines the imperative of leaving home to seek one’s fortune, love and destiny, while also considering that 'digging for gold’ comes with a cost.  

Geoff's concept on writing the title track:

 “Growing up in Malmsbury in the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Victoria’s goldfields, we had dull, grey mullock heaps all around us, remnants of the old diggings. We kids would explore the discarded mine-shafts and tunnels, daring each other to leap over huge holes in the ground. It was fascinating history, so much work that had been suddenly abandoned. As writing progressed, I began listening not only to the whispers of my own past but to the ghosts haunting the history of the area."
