'Tonchi McIntosh grew up in Bourke and has Mexican blood running
through his veins on his Mother's side. He sings, his voice
full of warmth and emotion, of Australia with a clear-sighted
passion for the land and its traditional owners, moving from
acoustic folk/rock to electric and touches of reggae and country.
This mixture of musical forms enfolds his lyricism, and one
of his strengths is the meshing of imagery, be it allegorical
or as raw and rich as the red earth of the outback".
...the most important Australian songwriter
to emerge in the last ten years.
"Holding the songwriting torch for the next generation..."
His music has meaning and incisive depth, usually
associated with older performers, a special musician who will have
input into the real music of this country".
These songs have lots of blue sky in them. Beneath
that is a broad red land and somwehere in between is a light strong
voice with sun in it. Tonchi McIntosh is that rarest of things,
