Album Notes
8 Ball Aitken performs uniquely Far North Queenslandic roots, alt.country & blues-rock anthems, contemporary honk, stomp, Aussie swamp tunes played on a big National steel guitar. This is a big sound from the deep north, straight out of the Mareeba Delta, all steamy and bouncing off the remnants of extinct volcanoes, booming through the canefields. 8 Ball rolls into your personal soundtrack, packing tripped-out wet tropics cowboy music from the roadside, roots music with balls.

The past year has seen 8 Ball Aitken receiving national radio airplay on Triple J, ABC Radio Regional, Radio National and other stations around Australia. He’s recently toured Japan twice, and gigged around Australia, playing a wide range of festivals, clubs, pubs and special events. Highlights include the Woodford Folk Festival, The Tamworth Country Music Festival, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Melbourne Fringe Festival, the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, and the Gympie Muster to name a few.

8 Ball has released his newest album, ODD BALL IN in 2006. He’s got a good team behind him -- this new album of radio friendly roots-pop is backed by support from, Phoenix Movement Records, MGM Distribution and manager Bird Jensen. In the past year 8 Ball has received grants funding from John Butler’s JB Seed initiative, as well as Arts Queensland & the Brisbane City Council.

8 Ball Aitken has played on the same line-up and supported musicians including Dr. Hook, Xavier Rudd, Ross Wilson, Diesel, Dave Graney, The Bondi Cigars, Eugene 'Hideaway' Bridges, the Zydecats (featuring Lucky Oceans), Enrico Crivellaro, Finis Tasby, Alice Stuart, the Detonators, Phil Emmanuel & Doug Ford (ex-Master’s Apprentices).

Do you want all the steamy heat, the intensity, and the wild spontaneity of the real Australia? 8 Ball Aitken is authentic -- a real-deal Aussie outback character who rattles the roof, stomps the planks, and gets your audiences whooping and hollering along in a frenzy of pure exuberance. You can forget your troubles, just for one night -- the thrill is tangible.
