Diesel strolls through corridors of inspiration
HINDSIGHT is a funny thing, you can never know at the time what may later be the catalyst to take you in a direction; so has been the case with Diesel's musical journey.
A Time & Place - Songs That Laid Tracks is Diesel joining the dots from pivotal moments of discovery and subsequent influence to the ultimate destination of inspiration-bearing songs, some of them we all have gotten to know over the years.
Diesel's Coffs Coast fans can see first-hand the latest musical stylings when he performs at Sawtell RSL on Friday night.
Rewind to a four-year-old Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) being helped by his siblings to stand on a stool and reach the kitchen wall phone to request from the local radio Maggie May by The Faces… a mandolin milestone that would later manifest in Coming Home - a country infused track making it on the debut album Johnny Diesel & The Injectors.
A Time & Place is an opportunity to hear Diesel in a solo setting as he strolls through the corridors of his musical inspiration, obvious and surprising, it makes for a revealing and captivating night.
