Graham Howle is on a mission to blend his talent for music with his passion for supporting the region's smaller voices.
In his latest album Man with a Story released August 30, Howle highlights the plight of the state's farmers, regional and Indigenous communities to fight against big corporations like gas drilling companies around North West NSW.
"In today's time I believe things are moving so fast, and whether we like it or not decisions are being made for us by bigger powers and authorities," he said.
"So when the community pushes back, especially like with the situation I've seen first hand where a small community is being bullied by big business, it's really great to see.
Howle said it was less about the outcome of such troubles and more about the effort throughout.
"Whether they win or not, the minority groups are sticking together and supporting each other, and especially with racial tensions still surfacing it's good to see the community join together despite their differences with the same goal in mind," he said.
Currently performing in Mackay, QLD, Howle is taking his tour down the East coast and around the Great Ocean Road before arriving in Henty on October 19, followed by a show in Albury's The Bended Elbow on October 20.
"While I appreciate infrastructure in cities, I just love the country, I love the bush and I love the people," Howle said.
