Troy Cassar-Daley is proud to present his new album Things I Carry Around live in concert with a very intimate presentation, it's like opening up a large suitcase and having memories and family pictures and sounds and scents and tears and laughter and heartbreak all tumble out around you; a case full of life in all its variations. The songs were inspired through the process of gathering stories, the ones Troy's fans have been waiting to hear - his own - in the book Things I Carry Around.
There's a singular line towards the middle of Troy Cassar-Daley's majestic new album, Things I Carry Around that snags you like a sprig of barbed wire.
"I live the tales that I tell."
He writes and sings about what he knows, without frill, without varnish, with a purity that somehow makes his experiences universal.
