From Melbourne to Memphis, Aussie blues/roots artist Geoff Achison has thrilled audiences around the world with his dynamic blues playing and gutsy solo arrangements.
Geoff first arrived on the scene in the late 1980’s playing lead guitar with enigmatic Australian blues performer Dutch Tilders. After several years with Dutch, Geoff took his music overseas competing at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, USA where he won the ‘Albert King Award’ and was offered an endorsement deal with Gibson Guitars.
A highly regarded guitarist, singer and songwriter, Geoff is equally adept at acoustic and electric styles. Whilst regarded as a Guitarists Guitarist, Geoff is also an all-round performer who delights in entertaining the audience with his wry sense of humor. His music is firmly steeped in the blues, but he injects funk, soul, jazz and even classical styles into the mix.
