Geoff Achison

New CD ‘Another Mile, Another Minute’ released worldwide March 3, 2017
Winner of FIVE 2017 Australian Blues Music Awards!

Australian blues/roots singer/songwriter, guitar sensation Geoff Achison combines equal parts New Orleans Funk, driving Blues, jazzy Soul and outback Mojo.  He invokes the spirit of the great blues & soul artists to create his original sound he calls “Bluesic”.  He performs superbly in a full band format with his band The Souldiggers, or stunning solo acoustic shows. Geoff’s inventive and infectious performing style has earned him legions of fans around the world.

Geoff is a jaw-dropping, crowd pleasing guitar virtuoso with a rich vocal style from Melbourne.  He’s chosen one of the “Top Ten Hottest New Guitarists” by Guitar Player Magazine followed with making the “Top 100+ Guitarists You Should Know” roster.  In 2012 Geoff was listed as one of the “Top 50 Australian Guitarists of All Time.”  He’s been a 17 year Guest Guitar Instructor at Jorma Kaukonen’s (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane) Fur Peace Guitar Ranch and an exciting festival favorite featured on PBS, NPR and CNN.   His frequent tours of the US have seen him playing with folks like The Allman Brothers, George Porter, Jr., The Wood Brothers, Randall Bramblett, Delbert McClinton, John Mayer, and many others.

His performances have been featured on NPR, CNN & PBS TV in the US.

“Possibly one of the most gifted musicians to arrive on the scene…”  The Times of London, UK

“Achison seems more like a singer/songwriter’s soul in Jeff Beck’s body.  He should take his stature in the musical community to the next level with this disc.”  Elmore Magazine

Geoff is one of the finest blues guitarists I know with a completely individual style.  I have never seen anyone play quite like him.”  Jorma Kaukonen, Hot Tuna
