New Zealand’s very own travelling troubadour Delaney Davidson: loop maestro, noir protagonist, promotional coyote and production svengali. See the endless touring throughout Europe and the USA. Featuring live tour footage with his Ghost Orchestra at the iconic Wunderbar in Lyttelton, plus unreleased incidental music written on the road, which has, until now, been stored in Delaney’s deep, dark vaults.
The film gives us insights into his creative process, his songwriting habits and inspirations, and his personal view of the world with its quirks and human foibles. Delaney’s wry sense of humour and his theatre of unease feature thoughout the film. Director and editor Harley Williams has used footage that is mostly Delaney’s, humbly shot on his iPhone while touring the world.
*Director Harley Williams will attend the Festival in Wellington & Auckland. A Q&A will follow the screenings.
**Delaney Davidson will attend and perform live at the Auckland screening on Saturday, 3 June at 10.15pm.
