From Powderfinger to a celebrated solo singer
Fanning’s music talent already emerged at a tender age and he started writing songs at the age of twelve. He also learnt to play the piano at a young age, but added the guitar, harmonica and keyboards to his skills over the years – all of which he plays on stage as well. During his time at the University of Queensland, Fanning dropped out of his journalism degree to pursue a professional music career and fans are glad he did. Together with Ian Haug, Steven Bishop and John Collins, he performed in the band "Powderfinger" where he was the lead singer. The band was well-known throughout Australia and fans loved their alternative rock tunes, but in 2010 the band dissolved. This however, didn’t keep this talented musician from the stage – on the contrary. Already in 2005, he released a solo album named "Tea & Sympathy", which was received well, staying in the Australian Album Charts in the top 50 for 58 weeks. After a short time back with his band, he released two further solo albums, "Departures" (2013) and "Civil Dusk" (2016). Surely, this artist has even more in store for us in the future, but with such a wealth of musical talent, it is definitely worth checking him out.

A message to his fans
Although Fanning has never explicitly stated, he communicates his political views through music and is known to advocate for the rights of Aboriginal people. Thoughts on these topics are reflected in songs like "Black Tears". As if this singer needs to be put in a more positive light – his music speaks for himself and fans of folk and blues music need to check him out at one of his next concerts.
