Following on the back of their recent ARIA Chart success with CALIFORNIA DREAMING – No. 7 on the Albums Chart and No. 1 on the Australian Album Chart – acclaimed singer songwriters Rick Price and Jack Jones are thrilled to announce they’ll embark on a national tour in May 2018 to celebrate this amazing songbook!

A tribute to the west-coast California sounds of the 60’s & 70’s, CALIFORNIA DREAMING has been warmly embraced, fans revelling in the selection of songs from the period from the likes of The Mamas And The Papas, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Eagles, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
Rick and Jack are excited to hit the road together to play these songs live, Rick Price saying today, “We have been blown away by the reaction to the album and how these songs and our take on them, have resonated with the public. It’s an amazing opportunity to showcase them on a big stage, with a phenomenal band, in such a vast spread of locations.”
The twelve track album CALIFORNIA DREAMING was recorded in Nashville at Rick Price’s home studio, with Rick himself helming production.
Jack said, “Rick and I have been talking about doing something for close to two decades… it was a great opportunity to work together and celebrate great artists, some great songs and a certain time and genre. That period in music will never be repeated again. And now we get to play them live!”
